Celebrate the New Year!

Here's a great stamp from artist Elisabeth Bell. This adorable girl is celebrating the new year. I took the blue from her blowing horn and added wonderful die cut flourishes all over the card as an image of her noise flowing out to the world that the new year is here! Welcome 2012!

Here's a close up image of this adorable stamp, called Party Play, it's sold individually (CLICK HERE), and can be used on wonderful occassion where you need to send out a card to shout out good news to someone. The vertical Happy New Year sentiment comes on a whole sheet of sayings (CLICK HERE) done in a vertical format, these go so perfect with this stamp!!
Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year! I hope we can all have as much fun stamping our lives away as we did in 2011! Are you making resolutions for 2012? I think mine should be more fun! We all take time to do so much serious stuff all day long and are so stressed out. Why not make a resolution and PROMISE ourselves a little piece of fun everyday. 10-20 minutes of happiness and laughter, crafting, hugging our loved ones, walking outside, those can be the best minutes of the day everyday. Promise yourself that this year!

Cheers, Holley
