FM141 Happy New Year!

Cindy has a good challenge for us today on the Friday Mashup.  I got my thinking cap on to create a different New Year's card incorporating time.  My friend Sue lent me her Bringing Baby stamp - thanks Sue!

Rather than focus on the year's past, I'd rather look toward the future and make a wish for the new year.  I put a little top hat on Baby New Year, and I used the faux mother of pearl technique on the watch face.  So what is your wish? 

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

Sketch By Cindy 
  1. Create a project with the "Sketch."
  2. Create a project using "the theme of Time. "
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "a theme of Time & the Sketch."
Stamps: Bringing Baby, Clockworks, Sweet Essentials; Paper: Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP, Etcetera DSP, Silver Glimmer paper; Ink: Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Black Stazon; Accessories: Subtles button, White baker's twine, Frost White shimmer paint, Corner Rounder punch, Aquapainter, Sponge, Dimensionals.

And my daughter played along with this challenge too, at least with the sketch.  She was so excited when I told her she would be able to enter the challenge (the "contest", as she calls it).

She came up with cute sentiment herself.

Stamps: Stylin' Snowfolk; Paper: Island Indigo, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Summer Smooches DSP; Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, markers, printed sentiment with Edwardian Script ITC font.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Heidi,

Cute card and great concept for New Years - I like how you thought "out of the box"

Sooo sweet that your daughter joined in, and her card is too sweet for words.
