SUINKWWC21 - Happy New Year

Good Afternoon and Happy New Year's Eve! It's time for another Whachadoin' Wednesday Challenge at Storage Units, Ink & More. The challenge this week is simple; make a card for the New Year. It can say Happy New Year or it can be a representation of something you wish to do in the New Year or any other interpretation you wish. You can check out THIS post for more information on how to play along.

For my card, I used the SUINK set AT A SNAILS PACE. As soon as I saw the "Slow down and smell the flowers" sentiment, I knew this was going to be my card for this week's challenge. Looking back on 2008 and thinking about how fast the year flew by, I don't think I really took the time to slow down and appreciate everything in my life. It's always GO, GO, GO and I'm sure all of you can relate to that...LOL! This is something I would like to change in 2009; for myself, my family, and everyone and everything that is important to me. I used Prism Papers Baby Pink Medium and Chocolate Chip cardstock and the patterned paper is from the Making Memories Noteworthy Collection. I colored the images in with Copic Markers and added Crystal Stickles to the center of the flowers. The polka dot paper is embossed with the Cuttlebug d'vine Swirls embossing folder. I added some brown and white polka dot ribbon from Taylored Expressions and I thought the adhesive pearls were a nice touch.

Today is also the last day of sneak peeks for the two new releases by Storage Units, Ink & More. They are called SWEET THINGS & WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE and they will be available tomorrow, January 1st. It's Janna and Alex's turn to show you their peeks, so head on over to their blogs to see their ADORABLE (and I mean ADORABLE) creations. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL and safe New Year's Eve!



Ohhhh the little snail and the slow it down sentiment - too cute! That's a good thing to want to do for this year. People get so worried about having a spotless house and laundry done...but you know, it'll be there later. Enjoy your time with loved ones.... Great card - and happy new year, Laura!


Oh this is so sweet. Great card!
