My New Year wish is for everyone to Happy, Healthy, and Safe!  And to go along with that, today’s project is about the Happy New Year also.  Even if a day late, this is my first post of 2023.

This bright card has a bit of Old (going away) and New (current products) to reflect a happy New Year to come.  It is also my Design Team entry for the Make My Monday Blog Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is Something New.  That could be taken a few different ways, but my thought was totally new, as in the New Year.  You can see all of the designers’ cards, and enter the challenge yourself by clicking on the little MMM badge below.



Once again the paper is the standout of the card.  This is one that is almost gone in terms of being purchasable.  It is the Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper and is a Host reward in the current Mini Catalog.  So you only have until the end of day on January 4th to order it.  Actually these are the two sides of one paper.  I loved the brightness of the red and pink piece.  And the fireworks page was perfect for a Happy New Year.


This beautifully scripted sentiment is from the Brightest Glow stamp set.  And with cheers of joy, it is carrying over!  All of the sentiments in this are beautifully written.  With the bright papers, especially the fireworks, I did not think this really needed a lot of extras.  So I kept it fairly simple with the one sentiment and paper layers.


To say simple and go from there is a bit lacking.  There must still be some bling.  Especially with the fireworks!  They are their own sparkle but still need something!  So I added to the center of the fireworks a variety of colors from the 2021-2023 Opal Rounds.  Some of the colors match and others are fairly close.  I think they give some subdued sparkle to the card.



My January Host Code is HEMUVZZK.  Please use this code for orders under $150.00.  I will have a small gift for those with orders over $50.00 in addition to the Perk Rewards Program.  You can read all of the information at the top of the page in the Menu Bar under SHOP / Perks.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project and will come back.  I do read and reply to all of the comments individually.  They mean a lot to me.  Please reach out if you have a question.

Smile and Keep On Stamping,
