Happy New Year and Flexmarker SWEET STUFF!!!!

A very Happy New Year to each of you!!! Gosh, I hope that you all have experienced a wonderful holiday season and are ready to begin a fantastically crafty New Year! Doesn't that sound exciting?!?! It certainly does to me!!! I am ready to move into new territories and enjoy the heck out of this year after the past one...lolol At the end of the month, I will be going to CHA to represent the fabulous Diana and Roy at Magnolia-licious/Scor-Pal and am so excited about meeting so many wonderful bloggers in real life!!!!

I want to place a note here that I have no idea what has happened to the mail EVERYWHERE this holiday season....but all of the SWEET STUFF has been mailed and I have tried to track some that I have not heard about but that is almost impossible. I have heard so many horror stories about the mail that I wanted you all to know that I am not the only one who has experienced unbelievable delays, etc. Several packages that I sent were were returned to me by Customs which makes no sense at all!!! A package I sent priority to the UK on November 28 finally arrived on December 24 after making a trip to the United Arab Emirates....go figure!!! And several of my friends have had lost orders and packages!!! So let's be patient a bit longer and see if things start to settle down!!!

I wanted to show you a card I made using the darling little Tilda With Pie, although I don't know why she is named that...lol She is a part of the brand new Sweet Crazy Love Collection which is available at Magnolia-licious. I used Bazzill for the base and for all double matting, the glittery DP is from the First Edition Isabelle Paper Pad, and all panels are machine stitched. The image was colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, adding a bit of Star Dust Stickles to the lace on her shirt and pants. Again, I share with you that the more I use the Flexmarkers, the more I love the brush tip....it is so much softer and easier to use than the Copics! I also added a bit of Stickles to one layer of the Nesties used to cut her out. For the vertical I used some pre-gathered lace and PTI grosgrain ribbon tied into a flat bow. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts: Wild Rose and Open Roses. To finish the front I used parts of some Self-Adhesive Swirls and some Self-Adhesive Rhinestones.

The inside of my card is more of the same, adding just a sweet gold charm on the first panel and more of the lovely swirls on the jotting panel.

Flexmarker SWEET STUFF!!!!

I bought another Flexmarker set for one of my lucky FOLLOWERS to celebrate the New Year!!! This time it is Set 2 which consists of the most beautiful pale, pastel colors you have ever used!!! They are so beautiful!!! In addition I have found a couple of sets of Inkadinkado Clear Valentine's Day stamps in my stash that I would love to add to the SWEET STUFF this time!!!

So please leave a comment before Saturday, January 7, at 8 AM EST and we will find out who is the lucky one in this New Year! If you don't have a blog, please give your email in your comment. For those of you with blogs, I would love for you to mention this nice surprise on your blogs if you wish!!! Good Luck!!

Thank you all so much for dropping by and I hope you will come back often! I love seeing you here! Until the next time, be safe and enjoy each moment!!! Big hugs!!

Susan said...

I have had one package due me, get totally lost. Additionally another took forever...but the person mailed it parcel post. bad move. I sent you a card, I hope you rec'd it :)

2011 had some wonderful blessings come my way the last half of the year. I had lots go wrong also (big) so it did not balance out, but when I was feeling the lowest is when the little blessings came my way. The major issue is that the hubs, really needs to retire (he is 70 with some health issues) but since I became disabled and lost my income, he doesn't have a choice because we still have a large mortgage, PLUS the house needs quite a bit of work, it is an older home, that needed work when we bought it, and even though we poured our heart and soul and $$ into the house, we ran out of $$ and time, and helpers.
I went back to college when the youngest was 13, and the goal was to build a career and let hubs retire, well I was only working F/T in my field 3 years (5 years total since I graduated...part time and Per diem)when I got hurt on the job, and that was the beginning of the end. That was April of 2005, My Workers comp has NOT even gone before a judge yet. NJ WC sucks!! I really do not know what we are going to do. Ron is even starting to have some periods of confusion and memory lapse (he has been an uncontrolled insulin-dependent Diabetic since the age of 42)So we knew that this was a possibility. HOWEVER, we are all convinced he had a small stroke in April, and all this started right after that.
so who knows.

BUT...My goal for 2012, is to let things go that I have have no control over...I have anxiety and worry soooo much, it is aging me, and also makes me irritable. So I said...enough of that!! So my word for the new year is "Release"!

Do you have a word for the new Year?

I love this card!!!! LOVE IT!! ya know why?
SEAFOAM GREEN!!! always been a fav color of mine, and I LOVE the lace!
Gorgeous card as usual, Jacque! You never cease to amaze me.
