Hi Everyone,
Happy New Year! Thank you so much for supporting the blog and leaving comments.

Our New Year plans doesn't involve anything glamorous( gasp!) yeah I know!!!
but that doesn't stop me from creating a simple card by adding a little spark to the  invitation for a few friends.

What are your plans for New Years?

We plan to go to church, then have a few friends over to ring the new year!

Here's the simple card I created.
My biggest challenge was to keep it simple and just use the cuts off the cart.





The Journey:
Cut the envelope first I cut at 7 inches, ink the edges.

Card was cut at 4.5 inches,ink the edges, add bling cut the year out of bling cardstock ink the edges.

The Cast:
Uhu Glue, Wild card cartridge, graphically speaking cartridge , Cricut Expression from Provo Craft, Bling cardstock DCWV, Rhinestone Mambi, Fluid chalk by Colorbok.

Happy New Year!  to start the new right I’m giving away From Kitchen Cartridge!

Cartridge is donated by our sponsor Provo Craft.
