Happy New Year and DT Post

Good Morning!! Happy New Year! Wow, I can't believe it's 2011!! I hope everybody had a wonderful Holiday, I took some time off and spent it with my family. Most of it was nice but we had a few bumps in the road which made for a not-so great holiday. My 29 yr old cousin fainted and fell on Christmas Eve. He had swelling in the brain, ended up in an induced coma. He passed away on Weds. So sad and he was so young, it's still hard to believe. So anyways along with that a few other things happened involving some family members which made for a rough week.

Life in my 4 walls of my home with my wonderful children and husband was great! We had a beautiful Christmas morning, I think we all got what we wanted and then some. I for a Spellbinders Grand Caliber along with a couple of yea, I was pretty happy about that!

The rest of the week me and the kids kinda hung out, went to the movies and took a quick trip to Disney. My husband and I did something we don't usually do and went out for New Years Eve. I don't like going out and driving, so we usually just stay home and play board games. This year we decided to stay at a Hotel which has a club in it. It was awesome and we had such a great time. It was nice and boy did I need to get away!

Now I have to get back to my DT work and other commitments!! Today I have for you a card using Popcorn the Bear. I had yet to use it, it's quite a large image and I was kind of intimidated by it!

Popcorn the Bear images come unmounted. You can buy EZ Mount from Michelles Scraps which is sponsoring the challenge this week at Paper Sundaes. She also carries Copic markers, which is what I colored this with.

The centers of the sunflowers have some Art Elements and Liquid Glass. The background was colored with Prisma Colored pencils. The paper is from CTMH.

This weeks challenges for Paper Sundaes is to use something New, which was my popcorn the bear stamp. The challenge over at Sentimental Sundays is "Celebrate/Friendship". Hope you get a chance to join us at either one or both.

This is a wonderful card Tracy - your coloring on the bear is quite nice and I do love sunflowers. What a neat idea to spill the flourishes off the card and I like the way you have your sentiment mounted. What a nice card for me to steal!
Happy New Year Tracy -
