Happy New Year

I can't believe it's almost 2013! Wow, where does time go?  One more party for New year's Eve and then back to the ole routine, yuck! Oh well, it's life so not much I can do about it, LOL.
I didn't send out Christmas cards (again) this year, but I do have good intentions for next year!! I WILL send them out, at least, as of now, I will send them out (check back with me about October, ROFL). I did do a few cards for some gifts I sent so I'll be showing those over the next few days.  Here's one where I did the "chalkboard" technique...oh my, I love this look and it's soooooo simple!  Just head over to Betsy HERE and you can see for yourself just how easy peasy this is!
And here's the closeup of the "chalkboard"
Pretty cool, eh?  I will probably bombard you all with more cards using this technique. It's so much fun! Come back soon, I'll have more cards to show. (oh and the stamps used are from MFT - gosh I just love that store!!!)
Happy New Year everyone! See you soon.

Paula you and I are on the same page with Betsy! I just made my cards last night with the same chalkboard technique for Thank You'. How funny is that, now I need to post them. I love the words you have here as they are bug and look like a sign we would use in our homes. I love it!
Happy New Years!
