This is a card for a dear, quirky, artsy friend of mine. I've decided to use more HUMOUR in my life this year, and this is the beginning. I just LOVE the look on this gal's face! I created the card to fit several challenges in blogland. Over at Crazy Amigo, last week's challenge was to leave the year with a splash (her splash is in her hand, lol) and this week's they're celebrating the New Year...and new things. This week's Gothic Arch challenge hosted by Mary-Beth is also the New Year. Over at TGIF, the theme is winter, and since our New Year in eastern Canada happens in the winter, I hope my New Year's theme fits for that one too. Over at Theme Thursday, we're to use "something new" in our work. Mine is the fireworks stamp I bought when I'd seen it used by my friend Daria in a tag swap last summer. Over at Art Creations, the ladies gave us a lovely background to work with. I used the background at the bottom of the arch, and for the punched flowers on my gal's hat. I really had FUN creating this, and can hardly wait till my friend receives it!
I wish everyone the BEST in health and prosperity in 2009!
