Cheers!

So, here's the deal. I don't know if I shared here that I signed up for an adult Jazz/Tap class. Mind you, I have never taken a dance class in my life, so this was kind of crazy, but something I've wanted to do for a really long time, so I just DID IT! Wellllllll.... last night was my first class. I'm terrible. HA! BUT, alas, it was WAY fun and it's something new AND I'm totally hoping I get better because, well, I'm not sure I can get much worse. The shoes, however, those totally ROCK!!!! For REALS! Just sayin'.

Today I have another fun New Year's card to share with you using some super fun brads from Eyelet Outlet and another great SRM Sticker sentiment! Love those things!

Cheers to a New Year!

This one is kind of fun! I started out with a black card base and rounded the corners. I then added the Martha Stewart decorative tapes, these are thicker than washi tape, but I still love them lots and lots. I cut a tag, rounded a corner, and stamped the 'rays', adhered the brads, and affixed the sticker. I actually used a silver Sharpie to create that cool silver border around the tag to match the border already on the sticker. I LOVE how that part turned out!

Cheers to a New Year (detail)

I added both the Gold Shimmer and Platinum Shimmer twines from The Twinery and then tied the little bunch with some awesome silver string from May Arts! Silver and gold can be really fun colors to play with!

I am also linking this card up to the fabulous CASology 'New' Challenge! New dance class, new year, new fun products.... there's lots of new going on, isn't there?! Well, now that's just FUN!

Oh...and don't forget to check out the Eyelet Outlet blog today for some more fun New Year card ideas!

I hope you have a super stupendous Friday, folks!

Jingle Out!

Beautiful card Jingle. I also took tap lessons and loved them. I reckon as soon as I put the shoes on and hearing the beats and clicks I was Ginger Rogers...NOT.......lol but loved it just the same. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x
