Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Everyone celebrates the new year in their own manner - whether it's party hardy the night before or a football bowl fest the day of.  These cards will help anyone ring in the new year with a smile.

We recently saw a blog entry from Kristina Werner where she had purchased a "cut" card with a wonderful sentiment (see her post here) and from that we took our inspiration.  I sketched the ideas and Jessica built the SCAL file that we cut on our Cricut.  If you are interested in the .scut file we will be glad to share it - just leave a comment on the blog.

Here's a couple of shots of the individual cards.  We totally scraplifted Nichole's use of Scor-tape and glitter.

Thanks for hopping by, Monica and Jessica

HNY:  PTI Scarlett Jewel & Glimmer Gold cardstock,  Fresh Alphabet stamp, Gold Ribbon.  Other - gold embossing powder.
