Happy New Year!

It isn't quite the New Year hour here yet but I won't make it this year to the witching hour. So I wanted to wish you all the best in 2017. May this year be the best ever. Wishing you good health, happiness and everything that your heart desires.
I spent the last two days babysitting and we have to be over to pick up the twins at 6:30 AM and take our daughter to work by 7AM. We'll have the twins until 5PM tomorrow so I won't get much done tomorrow. I did manage to get a quick thank you card in this week. I think I need one more to finish off my thank you's for Christmas gifts.

I used the Stella Sketch at Catch the Bug blog as inspiration. I used a scrap background that I had already put together. I printed the computer-generated sentiment and inked the paper with Peacock Feathers distress ink. The image is from Bugaboo called Snow Friends Window colored with Copic and Bic markers. I added the punched snowflakes and a few multi-colored self-adhesive gems. To embellish a bit I added Diamond Stickles to the image and the snowflakes.

I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope your holidays were wonderful and again wishing you all the best in 2017. Happy New Year! Here's to many crafty moments in 2017.
