Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!  Hope you all had fun ringing in the new year last night!

My MIL has been staying with us for the past five days, building her strength after a week in the hospital.  She is doing really well and has decided it's time to get back to her routines, so hubby will be taking her home tomorrow.  We have enjoyed having her stay with us, but are happy that she feels well enough to be on her own again.  Tonight, our family is getting together for dinner to celebrate a belated Christmas with her.

On to the card for today.  This is for this week's CAS challenge (CAS151 - Beverages).  Today I'm using a digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles.  Hope you like.

    "Happy New Year"

Stamps:  Happy New Year (Whimsie Doodles Digi)
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Old Olive, Pink Pirouette (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  computer printer, Cuttlebug "Tiny Bubbles" embossing folder, Crystal Effects, adhesives, and glue dots

I printed off the image (and sentiment) from my computer onto Whisper White cardstock.  I printed a second copy of the image only and then ran that through my Big Shot with the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder.  I cut out the sheep's body and top of head from the embossed paper.  I added Crystal Effects to the part of the sheep's body that is below the rim of the glass.  I set it aside to dry.

I used my Stampin' Write markers to color in the olives and the sheep's nose and ears.  I used Crystal Effects to color in the martini glass and give it depth and shine; I set it aside to dry.

Once everything was thoroughly dry (and it takes a while!) ... I mounted the main image panel onto a card base of Basic Black cardstock.  I rolled up glue dots and used them to adhere the embossed parts of the sheep on top of the main image (paper tole).
