Happy New Year!! I hope you had a fun and safe holiday and you are ready to begin 2011. I'm sure you've heard this everywhere but I'm just amazed at how quickly the year passed by. It seems like only yesterday I went to my first Michael's crop and I used the cricut machine for the very first time. I must go back. I think that's the best time to scrap because you get to enjoy the company of others while you fiddle around with a piece of paper and glue :)
I wanted to begin my crafting new year "Toasting It Properly" with a New Years Card using new techniques/items I'm not usto. Such as: Flowers, Glitter & Ribbon (not on this one but will make its debut in some that are coming up this week). These items will be part of my new crafting resolution in addition to my others. As for my other crafting resolutions, I'd like to begin making videos, make 2 cards per project, lessen the time I spend on a card, open up an etsy shop, minimize my card making time, get a facebook account and reduce the time I spend on a card. lol.
I hope you like my card. I really do. Since I tend to toss or give away my cards or projects after a while, I really don't have much to show. So I do think that this would be a good one to begin my permanent collection.
And if you like this adorable image you can find her and many more at Tiddly Inks.

I wanted to show a closeup of the bling/glitter. I like the way it came out and it's very appropriate for the occasion. I also wanted to show a closeup of her hair (I'm very proud because I think I'm making progress). I'm really trying to practice my coloring and get the effect of light & darkness.
I'm playing along with...
