Happy New Year!

Well it's a new year once again.  Hope you all had a safe and Happy New Year's eve.  We usually stay home and celebrate.  Here is a card I created that is really easy!  This is an idea I got from Vicki at Splitcoast Stampers yesterday for their Color challenge. She used acetate to create the outside of her card.  I looked through my stash of Hambley overlays (this Company closed about a yr ago) and found one with a clock on it, my last one.  I love these overlays!  So I stamped Happy New Year and the date on the front, used paper from my stash, added a little bling and silver string. Done and very easy!  So why don't you look through your stash, I bet you have some kind of acetate or overlays in there!  Here's to a crafty New Year!
