Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! Hard to believe that 2010 is now over and a fresh new year is ahead, full of possibilities! I don't make resolutions but always have goals for myself that I try to accomplish in small increments. Sometimes I succeed, most times I don't. But it's important not to give up and keep trying. 
Anyway, here's a new year celebration card made using one of the adorable doggy stamps from Lili of the Valley. 

I finally decided to use the Banner Builder stamp and die sets from Papertrey Ink to create the PARTY banner. Love it! The letters were stamped with one of those Michael's dollar alphabet sets. I knew I would find a use for those some day, lol!

The 2011 circle seal was stamped with one of JustRite's border and alphabet sets and as usual, I colored the doggy with my trusty colored pencils. I added some shimmer to his crown and the streamers with Copic Spica glitter pens.

Here's to a happy and healthy new year, I hope I continue to 'see' all of you and more in the coming year. Thank you to everyone who visits my blog and leaves me a little love in the comments, I love reading each and every one.
