New Beginnings

It's New Year's Eve! Hard to imagine that a whole year has passed already!!! This time last year, I was still recovering from surgery ugh... but now I don't have any excuses, back to the gym!!!

I've been afraid to step on the scale lol! I KNOW that I've packed on the pounds during all the yummy holiday gatherings I've attended. It's so hard to resist, isn't it??? I have a pantry filled with goodies that Santa left in our stockings. I don't think that it should go to waste (or even better, it shouldn't go to WAIST hee hee).

So did you receive what you wanted for Christmas? I know that you had your heart set on some crafty goodness. The gifts I received were ALL wonderful! I have an amazingly generous family who loves me : )

Well... I'm back being a Fairy Princess! I'm happy to say that Roberta has asked me to come back to join her fabulous DT. Thanks so much, Bert : ) I have so much fun with her images! She's an awesome artist and it's always exciting to see what she's cooked up next.

Today (and every other Friday) is Fairy Fun Friday. Our challenge is 'New Beginnings.' Here's what I came up with using the oh so ca-uuuute Baby Emily...

Isn't she fun??? When I saw the challenge theme, I immediately thought of a baby card! I need to make more of them : ) I've also included a New Beginnings symbol using my MS punch for the butterfly.

I decided that Baby Emily needed gold posts for her ears...which then turned into a gold party for the whole card lol! She's colored with copics as well as the colorless blender to keep the colors softer. Here you can see that she's wearing gold rimmed glasses. I have a NEW MYSTERY PRODUCT that I've used, but I can't tell you yet what it is yet hee hee! As you'll see in the photos below, this GOLD product is ultra sparkly!!! I hope they also have silver! Anywho, the glasses needed to get a coat of Diamond Glaze on them, otherwise she might poke her eye out ha ha ha ha!

I actually punched the butterfly out twice. The first layer is from the pink dp which is behind the image, then I punched another one out of white cs. I used two coats of my MYSTERY PRODUCT on the butterfly. Papers I've used are from Nitwit. Nitwit has such yummy digi papers! You gotta take a peek!!! I picked up the flower at JoAnn's. It was sheer white, but I covered it with my MYSTERY PRODUCT...

Here's what two coats on a larger area looks like.
To make the pearls, I've used my fave Viva Decor Opal Paper Pen!

And this is three coats on a small area. After it dried, I gave it a coat of Diamond Glaze.

I hope you enjoyed my little card and are intrigued about what the MYSTERY PRODUCT might be : ) Come back soon to hear more!

May the New Year bring tons of FUN and JOY to you and your loved ones. Here's to a year filled with love and blessings!!!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
