Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe it's already a new year!  WOW how times sure does fly!  I want to wish all of you a happy, healthy, and successful 2010!  I've made so many wonderful friends since I began my blog back in 2008!  Thank you all for taking time to stop by my blog and seeing my creations; and even more for leaving your kind words, they truly make my day! :)

Today I am sharing a WOJ creation with you!  This is the New Years card that I made for my hubby.  I'm entering this in the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge (that is to create a New Beginnings theme which mine is New Years!); Stamp With Fun, and Everybody Art Challenge which is to make a New Years Card also!

I've used Charlie and colored him to look exactly like my hubby! :)  While I was creating this I actually was calling him Brent instead of Charlie!  Yes...I'm strange and talk to my stamps and images as I create!  I've used DCWV All Dressed Up dp and cardstock.  The shiney silver paper that the dp squares are adhered to is American Crafts Specialty Foil paper in silver.  My Fleur De Lis pendant was used for the background of Charlie.  I used shimmery DCWV black paper (from the Le Creme collection) for the pendant.


 Charlie was colored with my Copics.  I used my Black Spica for the pinstripe on Charlie's pant legs and also for his bow tie.  I used my Silver Spica on the bow tie as well.



I used the smaller die from the Fleur De Lis pendant set, cut them in half and used them for the corners on the inside of the card.
