Happy New Year!

Couldn't let 2011 come to a close without at least ONE blog post! Ha! So I grabbed the first thing I saw on my stamp table that I had made and snapped a photo. As usual, bad lighting. (New Year's resolution No. 87 -- use better lighting for blog pix!)

This is a card I made at one of our monthly stamp clubs earlier this year. Looking at it now, I see it needs some bling, so I'll have to take care of that and come back and post an "after" photo in 2012.

We made our own "ink pads" with Distress reinkers and baby wipes. I used Broken China and Peeled Paint and I think also a little Tumbled Glass. The butterfly stamp is from a retired Stampin Up set (Bold Butterfly, maybe?) and the "thanks" is from a current SU set. The scallop card base was cut with a Sizzix die.

I'm moving out of the closet in 2012 and into my own stamp room at long, long last, and I'm VERY excited about it! Hopefully this will translate into lots more stamping in the coming year!

Hope everyone has a happy and safe new year!!

Supplies: Butterfly and thanks stamps, Stampin Up; Distress reinkers in Broken China, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bazzill cardstock; baby wipes; dimensionals
