Happy New Year!
This is one of several posts I have scheduled for today...

It heralds a new Challenge starting today at Left of Center
 'All Things New'.

We are sponsored by Ike's Art

Today is the 8th day of Christmas - so first I am showing you a Christmas card using
Christmas Pixie

This is one of my favourite of Ike's images - in fact I used it about this time last year in this monochrome card...

However this time I have made a twisted easel card - I started with a red card base and used Christmas green textured paper to mat it. I coloured the image with Promarkers and stuck it on black card.

The sentiment (and easel stand) is from Dr Digi, with a little red Promarker - and finally I added some festive stickers from my stash.


Another easel card - the base and easel are matted with some red card then DP from my stash...
The image has a touch of red fineliner and icy Stickles then red card behind it.
The image is Happy New Year.
The final touch was the stand (stamped letters) and a couple of bows.
I will link this to Inspiration Destination Challenge #66

Then while I was at it, I thought I would make a matching ATC...

I will link this to Wicked Wednesday #191

Have a happy Crafty New Year!

 Looking forward to seeing your LOC projects!


  1. Love the New Years girl... so hip and fun! Those twisted easel cards are awesome, as well. Need to try that!

  2. Fab makes, I love that you made a smaller version for our challenge. She is one sassy gal celebrating New Year ! LOL . The black & white with the red is very striking. Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday and Happy New Year to you :)

  3. I have to make one of the twisted easel cards. I see them and wonder if they're too much work. Guess I'll go try to make one.
    thanks for sharing.
