Happy New Year

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I know. I am approximately two weeks too late; however, I just couldn't go on without wishing you and yours a happy new year. As for me, well, I am completely under the weather. I thought I had the flu, but in actuality, I feel as though the flu has me. I'm just hoping this thing doesn't turn into pneumonia. I've been there and done that and it wasn't a good feeling.

I have two invitations to share with you--both of which I created earlier last month for parties that would be celebrated this month. I was asked to make New Year's invitations for a New Year's Day celebration. This was for a returning customer. Whenever you have a returning customer, that's always a good sign that he/she really liked your work. Last year the invitation was all about pink animal print and this year's theme colors were gold and white. So, this is what I came up with....

I lucked up and found some gold colored glittered paper from my 
LSS. It wasn't what I was looking for, but I made it work.

I pulled out a die set I purchased a while back from MFT to create the glass.
 The set of dies contained four or five different glasses, so I used all of them--
creating a slightly different effect for each invitations.

I generated a computer printed tag, 'Bringing On the Happy With the Girls.

Added some fantastic gold ribbon I discovered at Michael's.

Finally, I accented the bubbly with a little bling.

I thought this invitation turned out pretty well.

I think this is the longest post I have posted. That is, I began this post yesterday and didn't complete it until today. As always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery and come back to visit real soon.
