Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Well, almost....!  Can you believe that tomorrow starts 2010?!  I can't believe how quickly 2009 flew by!  Well, it seems like every year flies by faster and faster!  The busier we are, the faster the days go by.  I'm hoping to slow down a little bit in this coming year and actually enjoy each day.  We'll see if that happens!  LOL!

Today I have a waterfall/countdown card for you!  This is my last post on here featuring ABC Toys and Crafts.  My 6 mo. stint is over, and now it's time for me to move on to other things!  I'm excited to see what the new year will bring for me!

I pulled out my new Sexy Little Numbers from Crafty Secrets and wasn't sure what to do with them.  I wanted to make a New Year's card for my parents, because they are so wonderful to me and my family, and I wanted to give them a special card ringing in the New Year!  But, I wasn't sure how I wanted to go about it.  And then I suddenly remembered the waterfall card!  I haven't made one in several years, so I had to run over to Splitcoast and look up the measurements and how to make it!  Out of sight, out of mind they say!  LOL!  Anyway, this is the result!

Paper: Bo Bunny St. Nick Noel, Garden Green, Ridinghood Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Garden Green, Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Antique Linen and Walnut Stain
Embellishments: assorted brads, holly punch from Martha, lace punch also from Martha, scallop punch from SU!, 1 3/8" square punch (SU!), 1 1/4" square punch (SU!), sponge

Happy New Year to you and your families!
I hope you all have a happy, healthy and successful year!
Happy Holidays!
