Happy New Year and some news

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and may this new year bring you much joy!! 

It was really nice to have the kids home from school this past 1 1/2 weeks. We got to spend alot of time together just hanging out without any responsibilities or activities to run too.  Tomorrow it's back to school and midterms... eeek!

Today I wanted to share a Happy New Year card that I made:

I used Tilda and Edwin Dancing and the champagne bottle and glass by Magnolia.  I cut out my letters and numbers with my Cricut Expression - hmm... now that I look at it, the letters weren't placed very evenly :(...   I did have trouble placing these tiny letters down with glue... I hope you still like it?

Here are a few closer views of my card:

Well I wanted to share with you some unbelievable news that I received just before Christmas.

I have been asked to join the Magnolia Sweden Design Team.  I can't tell you how shocked, suprised, and thrilled I was to receive such an amazing early Christmas present. I'm so honored to get to work with this amazing group of talented ladies.

Well, thanks for visiting me today and for any comments your might leave me.  Take care!! xoxo
