HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!!
Hope it will be a great one for you!
Silly me, I wasn't sure about the new Bow Builder Punch in the catalog; I thought it might be really small but... it's not! It is a perfect size and another good thing is that it is a very "mail-able" embellishment for our cards! It's so easy to use and make these adorable bows! I"m thinking it is a must have for Valentines, spring, Easter, Mother's Day... yeah, year round!!
Don't you just love these new Designer Papers? They are from the new Stacked with Love Paper Stack; the patterns are all new and en pointe with current colors and trends!
I like these stamps with Scriptures and this Banner Blessings set features four different stamps with a banner across the word... so cute! I colored this one using my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and the Calypso Coral Blendability Marker then die cut it with one of the Chalk Talk Framelits.

For several generations it has been a family tradition to eat black eye peas on New Year's Day . Legend has it that this is supposed to brings good luck in the new year, lol! I don't put any stock in that but we do enjoy them with ham and cornbread so it's a fun tradition!! Enjoy your New Year's Day! Perhaps you don't have to work today and can grab some time to stamp!
Blessings to you in 2015!
