Happy New Year...Almost Time

Almost time to ring in the New Year...2010 has been a good year except for that fall in January when I broke my wrist...bad way to start off, but... the year ended better than it started. It has been a good year carding and blogging...a lot of new friends and old friends have added so much  enjoyment to this past time.
 I have learned a lot and keep trying new things such as the technique in this card. Made the "streamers" using the rubber band technique that I saw on Stamp TV  in one of Gina's great videos. Technique is to  use rubber bands on a brayer but I have no brayer so I improvised with a glass water bottle. I only rolled up and down instead in all directions because I wanted the effect of streamers falling down.  Added some party hats for fun stamped with GKD "Candles on Your Cake" by Melanie. Text stamped with Fiskars Basic Font Stamps. Inks are SU and Momento Markers and Papers from stash. Used Atyou Spica Gold and Sakura glitter pen on letters but does not show in photo.

What are your plans for New Year's Eve? I plan to spend a quiet night ringing in the New Year with my DH.
Happy New Year!
