Holiday Inspirations Crew - New Year's!


Welcome to the final (for 2013) Holiday Inspirations Crew blog hop!



This time we're doing a 1 day event to provide you with tons of inspiration to ring in the New Year!

We're making projects using products we like and some of us are even offering prizes. Check each blog for which prizes are being offered and when the winners will be announced on that blog.

I went ultra simple for this one. MSE Parfait numbers, the '1' substituted with a branch from a tree and a Stampin' Up starburst stamped in Versamark/Summer Sun and then embossed in Egyptian Gold for sparkle.

The kids are finished school for two weeks and last minute preparations are underway. Tomorrow (Sunday) is our much-anticipated performance of We Three Spies (our Christmas musical at church). I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend!

Don't forget to stop by the other members' blogs for some more New Year's Inspiration. Happy New Year!



ETA (Jan 3): This card was chosen as a favourite! Woohoo!

Eeek, Ardy! I am putting this on Pinterest immediately. Someone should pay big bucks for this as a logo for the year 2014 to be seen by the whole world! This, honestly, I don't have words! Hugs, Darnell

Clever, clever, you clever girl! I get so excited seeing such creative designs like this. It's so difficult to create such a strong message with so little space. Kudos, and thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
