New Year's Cheer

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends yesterday.  We had a terrific day - it was nice to relax and enjoy every one's surprise and delight with their gifts and to reflect together on the true meaning of the day - the birth of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

Today starts a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and my focus changes to the New Year with this fun digi from Bugaboo, our sponsor of the challenge this week.

Here's the sketch - it goes together quickly and has room for some fun embellishments and shows off your pretty papers.

Bugaboo Stamps is our sponsor of the challenge this week.  Our Grand Prize winner will receive 7 free digi stamps of their choice from Bugaboo - a very generous prize package.  Thanks to Jodi for sponsoring us with such a terrific prize.

I chose this fun digi from Bugaboo called JJ Christmas Cheers thinking it would make a perfect New Year's card.  She was colored with Copics and I used crystal lacquer on the glass to make it appear she was really in a martini glass.

You just have to see the fabulous cards the design team created this week and some of the fun embellishments they chose to dress up their cards.  Stop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and take a peek and of course we'd love to have you join us in the challenge this week so give it a go!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year to all of you.

Oh Sharon, JJ looks so happy and she's had that much fun from Christmas she's stuck there until New Year. I just adore JJ and this one really puts a smile on my face. Love your colours and papers and those Rhinestone embellishments are just perfect. I think you have a very similar sense of humour to me and think we've all met a JJ in our lives. I love everything about your card. Hope your Christmas went well very hot and humid here that you didn't even feel like eating after preparing Christmas dinner. Take care and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
