Happy New Year!

Wow! It is 2014 and time for another year of crafting and other papered adventures. Twenty-thirteen was a wonderful crafting year. I met wonderful fellow crafters and was inspired by many more. This year I have already set my sights on trying Becky Higgins' Project Life. I am looking forward to documenting the antics and rambunctious lives of my two boys. Wish me luck!

This week for Unity's Friends with Flair, I decided to make Christmas-themed Thank You cards using the Tinsel in a Tangle stamp. I just adore this stamp with its cute, tinseled penguin and sassy sentiment. I wanted to keep the card simple since I would need to make several of these. I did mix things up a bit by stamping and cutting out the penguin and then putting him on pop dots for dimension. I also added a cute little Santa hat for a continued festive flair. However, the hat needed a little holiday sparkle so I added Martha Stewarts garnet glitter. I love the finished card.

Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to check out the other wonderful cards, projects and layouts at Unity's blog.
