Happy New Year Year!!! and a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge

I am so happy to be back blogging after having spent a wonderful two weeks getting ready for my family Christmas with my entire family!!! Are you ready for a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge!!! Our Hostess is sweet, talented Ann and her theme is, New Beginnings, perfect for a New Year!!! I chose Let's Party:

This cute Sassy sweetie was colored with copics and then the parts I wanted sparkly were highlighted with Atyou glitter pens in clear, to just add the sparkle to the hat, ruffle and streamers.
I added a green banner and some buttons to help give the celebration feel to this party card.  In the lower right corner I added a yellow felt flower cut with my cricut.  Yep you can cut felt with a cricut if you use the heat and Bond iron on stabilizer so you can adhere it to the mat. I added a large orange wooden button from Michaels and tied it with some Baker's twine.
I added an orange checked ribbon and bow and my New Year's New Beginnings card is ready to begin the 2012 Year right!!!   I don't remember the last time I didn't color an image for two weeks, talk about copic withdrawal LOL.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT cards on the Challenge site and I am sure that Sassy Cheryl has some new images for us if she is feeling better. She has been a little under the weather this past week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!
