Happy New Years Eve

 I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  2011 I know will be better for me than  2010.  That is always my goal every year.. to make it better than the last.  It doesn't always work but I always try to stay on the yellow brick road along the way.

I really am not into making New Year's cards.  For me they are part of my holiday cards, so I move right into Valentine cards and I have a few birthdays in January.  So here is my first Valentine.  Gotta get a jump on these things.. hmmm shouldn't I have started with the Jan. birthdays???   I am always back ass wards.. LOL

I used CPS- Card Sketches Challenge 2010 Readers Ideas Week of 12/26/2010 You were suppose to go and pick a sketch from last year #148 - #198 and create a card.  Let me just say if you are ever in a card making block and need some great sketches to to help you get started.. go to CPS and look through their past sketches.  They really have great ideas and you don't have to use it exactly - make it your own.  I picked sketch #164  and just had the ribbon go length wise.

 The little scooter stamp was from the $1 bin at Mikes.  I just love going through that bin.  You never know what your going to find.  I added Pearls to the seat and on the inside to make it a little girly and also because Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #98 asked us to.  Haha  
Love me some Flourishes.

Both Colour Create Challenge #61 and The Play Date Cafe Challenge #62 asked us to use the color scheme of PINK - RED - WHITE - VANILLA .   The Play Date Cafe gave us this inspiration picture.  I know this is crazy but when I look at this picture it's obvious that it's about a wedding and to me when I hear wedding the first thing I think about is "Your Best Friend"   There are way to many divorces and I think that is because people don't find the most important quality in a mate.  Their best friend!  Maybe that is why I am not married.  I can't find that best friend.  So I will just make my Valentines Cards for my other Best Friends, those BFF Girlfriends that are always there for me.

Wow did I just say all that~!  Well that probably is better than paying the $150 a hour to lay on a couch and spill it.  Thanks everyone for letting me lay on your couch and spill.  LOL.

I better get started on those birthday cards now.
