Hello to a new year...

Believe it or not, I've been working on a few Christmas cards for 2018 before I put all my Christmas supplies away. I'm not going to show those to you today, though. Instead, I want to share a little "Hello" card I made.

I had some pretty dotted paper that even included some glittery dots. I searched through my scraps to see if I had a close match to any of the colored dots and came up with a pretty green.

I die-cut a cute little bow using an unbranded die set that includes the dies for three sizes of bows. This was the middle size.

Notice that I trimmed my green strip to make it look as though it is a ribbon tied at the point of the bow.

I also die-cut my "hello" from this same green CS using another unbranded die.

Three enamel dots from my stash finished off my card.

We had a great Christmas, but it has been really, really cold. I hate the thought of having to go outside when it's double digits below zero!!

I think we will have a quiet New Year's celebration at home. Maybe a little glass of wine, a nice meal and a fire in the fireplace. Sounds good, doesn't it?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day! And Happy New Year to all of you!!

Fun card. I love polka dots and with sparkle, what could be better. I'm with you on the cold. But I need to quite complaining about single digits above zero. I can't imagine how cold double digits below zero would be. Enjoy your wine and fireplace. Happy New Year. May it be a fun crafty one.

Wow Cheryl, I'm so impressed that you're ahead of the game for next year already! This is lovely, I've a wee bow die that I hardly ever use so this is a great idea for it!
I see I've missed loads on your blog! Glad to hear you had a good Christmas. Your New Year plans sound much the same as my own :)

Love your Hello card - bright cheery colors and that boy just tops it off.
I put my Christmas supplies away (but still accessible). Ready to start on Valentine cards - in fact getting together with a couple of friends tomorrow and one of my projects is a Valentine. Happy New Year - we "had" plans with another couple to come here for New Years eve but his wife called a bit ago and he is in ICU with the flu. So a glass wine, a fire, and watch the ball drop in New York.
