Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holiday season is always crazy! Mine is a little bit longer. It won't be ended till the winter vacation is gone. I think... Some of the party left over are still in my refrigerator and I need to prepare something new again... This weekend we still have a gathering. I also need to prepare some food. This time is stew pork. I am surprised that I didn't gain weight after these two months. LOL

This card is made mainly for our Crafty Gals group challenge. The details of the challenge is:

As mentioned, I am expecting my first baby at the end of February. We're pretty excited to celebrate this new addition and new stage in our lives.
My challenge to you for the Crafty Girls January challenge is to celebrate doesn't have to be a new baby...perhaps it's a New Year, new marriage, new job, new friend, etc.
In addition, use the opportunity to try a out a new technique (or template, something you haven't tried before). SCS has a great resources section with plenty of techniques, fancy folds, projects, etc.

And here is my take:

The new things I tried on my card is drawing everything digitally by myself and then print them out. There is no designer paper used in this card project. I also arrange font and made the banner too. It took me much more longer than making a usual card!!

Also this is the first baby card I made! It's very colorful! I haven't put these many colors on my projects for a long time. I like the result! Maybe I will have more of this kind in the future.

It's a group challenge, here is the group:
Melina ~ Crafty Scrapper
Jackie ~ Kreate With Me 2 
Tracie ~ The Crafty Touch 
Carolina ~ Cardolina Scrapolina  
Patty ~ LaLatty's Stamp 'N Stuff

Crafty Gals group challenge: newness (baby theme)
Dutch Dare Card Challenges #146: new beginnings (baby theme)
Try it on Tuesday: a card & all your own work (I designed all the number pattern, sentiment, and drawing on computer.)
Tuesday Trigger: by the numbers (stitch circles, many colors, baby theme, number pattern)

2 Cards by Using Punch Around the Edge

I bought this set of punch around the edge. For the picture above, I only used the edge punch, not the whole set. (The snowflake is from the other punch.) After using this new set of punch a few times, I have to say--I love it!

This time I use Mojo Monday's sketch to make the card. I flipped the layout and changed the shapes a bit. I should have checked there earlier so I didn't miss the contest.

I used glitter pen after I punched out and glued all the butterflies. Not difficult, just need a bunch of care and whole lot of patience to wait till they dry. Next time I will use glitter paper instead...

Mojo Monday #219: sketch
Flutter By Wednesday #183: a butterfly, fairy or angel
Cupcake Craft Challenges #172: sparkles, shines, gleams, glints and/ or glitters
The Paper Variety: anything goes

I used the whole set of punch around the edge and get the result of the golden frame. Stamped with white color ink pad. It faded a bit after it dried. Brought out the flower gems I bought long time ago. YA! I finally found a spot to let them shine! I also colored the embossing paper with a bit of red.

Here is Ann's color palette from the Paper Players. I like it! Very Christmas!
