Happy New Year...

Bringing In 2012
I'll be lucky if I actually make it to midnight, but I'm going to give it my best shot.
Just incase I can't stay awake that long to send out copious emails and texts,
here's wishing you all a wonderful, happy, prosperous and safe new year!

In honor of this momentous event I've created this card to wish you all the very best!
I've used Bugaboo's cute JJ Tequila and Shoes - 5 o'clock and staged her to look circa 1920.
The image is a photo of New York's Time Square on New Year's Eve. 
Thought I'd color her in black and white to match the background with pops of red for color.
As for the sentiment, well....
I just love Phyllis Diller and her humor seemed fitting as we proceed closer to the New Year's toasts.
 Happy 2012!!!
The couch is calling me now, but I do wish you all a fabulous New Year!!
Hugs and Happy Stamping...

I took a two hour nap so I could be awake to read this at midnight!

May your new year be twice as happy as last year, and may the crafting force be strong with you!

Hello Q
Love the card and the sentiment. Nearly back to normal in this house, had my last entertaining session today; a few friends for Lunch; which seemed to go on and on....... at 5.30pm Rob and I were wondering if they were ever going to leave!!!!!!!!!
It is more fun celebrating the New Year the following day, we had a blast.
Next big occasion in this house is my Birthday!

HaPPY NeW YeaR LiSa!!!!

Oh my gosh! I love that vintage background of Times Square - I always wonder how long people had to stand still when they took photos the "old-fashion" way, so it didn't turn out too blurry. {LoL!}

Cute card - fab color combo! xo

Thanks for stopping by STV to wish me a happy new year. I SO appreciate it. I'm praying for 2012 to see you and yours flourishing and enjoying your husband's safe and healthy return to your home. I pray for God to station guardian angels all around him in the meantime!
