     Happy New Year friends!!  I've started the New Year by cleaning my craft room!  It's not a resolution.  It's a necessity! 
     I failed to post this last minute Christmas card.  Actually it was a thank you for my sister-in-law to go with her present.
     She is a blessing to me because she takes my Mom to her doctor's appointments.  I live with chronic pain and can't always do it.

     I didn't have time to color so I grabbed this new Blessing(s)(ed) die from Honey Bee Stamps.   
     I just love this technique of adding layers to a die.  I used red underneath so no matter how you held the card you could see the festive red layers.
      Adding a few sequins completed the card.  It was fast and easy.
     Thanks for dropping by!  Here's to a creative 2017!!

Dies R Us - anything goes using die cuts

  1. I've tried twice to comment but they both disappeared. Anyway, I like your new card.

  2. that is so pretty, so sweet of your sister in law, and so special to let her know. I have not yet tried this technique but have seen it on quite a few cards and love it, the paper you picked is so pretty.
    Wishing you a happy healthy New Year

  3. A really super creation and perfect for our Allsorts theme, many thanks for joining in our first challenge of 2017.
