Welcome to 2010! ~ And a facelift to my blog!
DH and I are having a quiet evening, making some homemade pizza, killing time trying to stay up till 12:00 midnight LOL! I'm wracking my brain right now since I did not get all my Christmas cards out on time, and now I want to send out New Years cards instead, but I don't have any New Years stamps! Hmm. I thought I'd share with you an adorable card I made recently that was for Christmas--do you think an angel works for New Years Cards? What about snowflakes? Hmm. Will keep thinking.
Anyway, back to this card--don't you love this teddy bear angel, which is one of the newer Ildi Co. digital stamps called Cuddles Kuma Angel.
The angel is coloured with copics, with spica pen for the halo to tie in with the gold ribbon. The background paper is sprayed with pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and a sponge with dark blue ink was rubbed across the embossed stars to make them jump out more.
Enough about the card, cards are great to talk about, but tomorrow is January 1st, the start of the New Year!
I love the start of a new year, the chance to stop and reflect on the year past, gear up for the year ahead, and start with a fresh slate.
What are your traditions for New Years?
My better half and I have had a tradition we've done for many years now. We have a notebook that we use as a diary which we use for our "new years" questions. This is a list of questions we put together a number of years back, and each year we discuss them, write down our ideas about them, and then review the things we wrote in prior years. It is fun and interesting to look back on. What questions do we ask? Well, here they are.....
1. Most memorable moment of the past year
2. Best movie seen in the past year
3. Happiest moment or event in the past year
4. News story that most captured your attention in the past year
5. Most difficult moment or event in the past year
6. One life lesson learned during the past year
7. Most memorable meal in the past year
8. Advise to your self for the year ahead
9. Goals for the year ahead
I was thinking of a new tradition, and that's to ask you, my readers, to leave me a comment with your answer to any of these you want to share. It'll be fun and interesting to see what you have to say :-)
I hope you enjoy whatever traditions you have for New Years, and that the year ahead is a good one for you!
