HaPpY nEw YeAr...!!!

 Hello folks!  Are you ready to say farewell to 2012 and a hearty hello to 2013...?  I've made this little, roughly 4x4, card to see in the New Year. 
 I took some of the fabulous kraft card and stamped it with images from the Time Keeper rubber stamp set.  I went for the pocket watch and the musical notes as I love to dance the night away with family and friends waiting for the magical midnight hour.  Keeping to the wintry theme I dropped on some white embossing powder and heated it from behind to give the randomly speckled design.  I stamped the bird, from Steampunk Christmas, onto the kraft cardstock and gave it a quick watercolour wash with white, brown and black paint.  I made a little slice into the brim of his hat and tucked in a little '2013' note covering up the holly berries.  I used a pewter rhinestone for the eye.
I die cut the letters from white funky foam and added AB rhinestones to each one.  A little ribbon and a bow were the finishing touch along the bottom.
Wishing all my blogging buddies and crafty compadres health, happiness, hilarity, hoopla's and plenty 'Hoorahs!' in 2013.
Ciao for now!

Hi Sandra, love this fun card. I don't know if you have tried it but you can heat funky foam with your heat gun and it shrinks. You have to be careful not to burn it! Have a great New Years evening and hope 2013 is a great year for you. Love and hugs, Carol S.xx
