Bright and Happy Wishes

Hello...
The big day has come and gone for another year and it's time to put away the Christmas stamps and look ahead to the new year... And maybe the diet Lol!
 
 I can't believe Mikey turns 36 tomorrow and the last day of the year my friend's daughter, Carla, celebrates her birthday

Today I'm sharing the card I made for Carla


 I went with bright inks and lots of splatters, it's shame you can't see how sparkly this is
The leaf dies are from The Works, I know I have plenty but I couldn't resist them
 
 
2018
It's been an eventful year in many ways... Some good and some not so good. 
Throughout the years I've made wonderful friends in our blogging community and I'm thankful to you all for your support and continued friendships... You've inspired me, picked me up when I was struggling and encouraged me in so many ways.
I don't know where 2019 will take me or what the universe has in store but I hope it will be a good year for all of us ...
I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year 
 
~ Ros~

What a gorgeous, artsy card, Ros--totally love it! The leaves are stunning--especially love the branch going to the right from under the star! You've shown how to use multiple white elements to perfection! Wishing the same for you in 2019, my dear friend. Happy New Year!

So beautiful, Ros! The color grabbed me right off the bat. You make the most divine backgrounds, and I love everything with white, plus the silver splatters and star are wonderful! You can never have too many leaf dies. It seems no year can be completely perfect, but I'm wishing for you the most perfect 2019 possible!

So gorgeous, Ros. i love that orange background wit the bits of color. The white leaves pop off the background and how clever to use a sparkly star. Have a great New Year.

Happy birthday to Mikey and Carla!

The birthday card is so beautiful, Ros! The ink blending is gorgeous with lots of fine spatters. I love the layers of the awesome die-cuts!

This is so pretty Ros!! I just LOVE the bright peachy/orange color...so bright and cheerful and looks FABULOUS with all the white! Your cards have all been just lovely lately...I'm sorry I haven't been around to comment! We had to make the decision on Christmas Eve day to put our beloved dog Brinkley down and it has just broken my heart to the point that I haven't done much of anything for the past week but cry. He was almost 14 and had a wonderful life, but so hard to see him suffer and even harder to make that kind of decision. I know he's in a better place now and we just need to get to a new kind of "normal" around here now. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for a wonderful and happy 2019! :0)

What a wonderful card to end your creative year with! Have a great start into 2019. At the crafty end of things I will be off to a good start: my creative nook is all tidy and clean! Wish you all the best for the new year!

I'd like to find that hole that sucks time away from us faster than we can believe! I'd also like to find the answer to that age-old riddle of how our children continue to age while we still feel 32 (not counting the aches and pains, lol!)! Happy Birthday to Mikey and to Carla! Your schparkly, schplattered, and warm star bouquet is utterly stunning and I'm sure it will be cherished! Happy New Year, Ros! Cheers to another year of friendship!! Hugs, Darnell
