And the Last Birthday Card of the Year goes to.....

Carla!

 My friend's daughter Carla was born late on New Years Eve 30 years ago, they waited 16 long years for her to arrive so she is kind of special...

I'm must say I was glad to finally put away the Christmas stamps for another year and get back to making a birthday card....

In my favourite colours of Cracked Pistachio and Broken China (what a surprise!) Lol!  Who knows, I may even find a new colour combination that I love in 2018 and shock you all

 
I did pull out my Cameo to cut out all the words then I hand cut a little holder for a gift card for her

 
Are you celebrating tonight?  It will be a quiet New years Eve for us, DH and I will no doubt watch a film cosy and warm...With the cats of course, and maybe a glass of red wine?
 I always like take time to reflect on events of the year that we are leaving behind, the good and the not so good, and whilst I'm not one for making resolutions, I'll never stop hoping for peace in this crazy world of ours.

It's been a wonderful year in our creative community, don't you agree? Lots of new ideas, new techniques and new friendships forged....
To you all - I wish you and your loved ones a lovely evening - Be safe
 And a very 
Happy New Year 
filled with love, happiness and good health... Enjoy!

Till soon

It's hard to beat that pretty blue and green combo. Add the silver glitter, cute ellie with dangling heart, and the cloud border, and it goes beyond darling into the realm of fantastic. What a great sentiment to put on the front. Love the rhinestone to dot the "i". Way cool that it holds a gift card inside, too. We're spending our new year's eve quietly, as well. Enjoy, Ros!

What a sweet card, Ros! The combo of Cracked Pistachio and Broken China is one of my favorites too. I love that you added the silver string with a pretty glitter heart to the cute elephant's trunk!
Happy New Year!

I hope you did have that cozy evening you mentioned - it was about that here doing raclette with two friends of mine... and chatting into the wee hours. Your card is yet another beauty - and has that turned into an actual new year's resolution, to shock us with new color combos? Whatever you come up with, I'm sure it will be gorgeous!

Marina said...

Oh so pretty - the cut outs and borders make it special and I love the heart on the silver thread.
And Thank You for the beautiful NY card you sent me.I love it.
