Challenges and a Happy New Year

 Oiy!  Yes, it's been too long again.  My apologies.  I've been in my craft room making swaps for some demo friends of mine.  This card used the retrosketches #98 for the layout.  How fun is this?  I made the card into a file folder with the envelope punch board.  If you'd like to know how to make the file folder card, email me, respond here, or come to a Sale-A-Bration workshop.  This stamp is one of the great stamps in the See Ya Later set from the SAB catalog.  The DP is from the Occasions Catalog.  Of course I had to finish the card off with a few extra hearts and a bit of bling on the large heart.  Everyone needs a little bling!

I made this card with a color challenge and now I can't remember where it came from!  Silly me!  Anyway, I like it.  The sketch is a challenge from Try Stampin' On Tuesday #152.  Very fun!  The Daffodil Delight Washi Tape was too wide so I split it in half before adhering to the cardstock. I don't know if you can see it, but there is Dazzling Details glitter on the sun.  You need a bit of glitter for sunshine.  Again with the bling thing!

Well, I hope your New Year's celebration was fun and the year is going smoothly for you.  Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.  See you soon!


p.s.  I forgot to link the sketch challenge for Try Stampin' On Tuesday when I posted late last night.  That's fixed now.  Lesson learned:  don't post after 11 p.m.!  :-D
