Happy New Year!

Well I do hope everyone had a wonderful time
ringing in the New Year..

We were with friends and family and had a 
fabulous time.  Most years we hardly make it to
midnight.  But this year was different. We made 
well past the midnight.  But I do believe 
I will be going to bed a bit earlier tonight. 



I wanted to share with you a photo of this cute little kitty. 
This little gal hangs out at my moms house.  But she is a Ferrell cat
and we could not even get close to her. So I was hiding behind my
mom's car to get this shot. 


We had a two week break over at City Crafters and
now were back..  I had some fun getting back into my craft room.
Even though I did feel a bit rusty, if you know what I mean. 



Kirsty is our host this week and has asked us to use
a vintage image of a boy/girl on your card. 



This image is from The Graphic Fairy.. 



As you can see I pulled out my glitter. 



If you would like the details on this challenge
you can hop on over to CCCB!






Before I go I just wanted to say thanks to all the wonderful 
Blog friends who sent me cards and crafty items to play with. 
You guys are the best..


Thanks again my sweet friends. 


That's all I have for today. 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Till next time. 

Hugs~

I loved your photograph of the little feral miss feline, such an amazing shot. I could 'see' you hiding behind your Mum's car trying to get this.... (I have a good imagination) :-)
Love your card, the glitter looks magical and really highlights beautifully.

Oh, delightful card!!. Happy New Year to you too :). I spent the afternoon on new year eve out with my beau, and the night with my cats. They joined me at the window when the fireworks set off from 3 different places in the distance :). They saw the lights for a bit then sped off, they hated the noise, LOL. LOVE LOVE all the photos you shared, especially the cat :).
