Hello! I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas. We're still enjoying our break but I thought I'd put my nose round the door to wish you a happy new year with a card. It features the Happy Hour set which ties in nicely with Less is More's challenge for the festive period - Drinks. Come and have a look:
How about this for a delicious cocktail of colour? Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit with a dash of Lucky Limeade! Yum!
I expect you can see how I created the drinks: the glass on the right was stamped first and masked while I stamped the other two, and of course my stamp-a-majig came in very handy to get everything exactly where I wanted it! The drinks were stamped again onto a scrap of card stock using Summer Starfruit ink and the gorgeous patterned 'liquid' cut out and glued to the Rich Razzleberry glasses. TIP: when you have a round shape that needs cutting out, don't forget your circle punches - they're more accurate than cutting freehand and take a fraction of the time.
And here's another of my hybrid sentiments - the thank you is from Sassy Salutations and is combined with part of a great sentiment from Happy Hour. I'd love to take the credit for this but I think my stamp-a-majig has to step forwards and take another bow!
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Happy Hour, Sassy Salutations
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit, Lucky Limeade
Card stock: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit
Other: 3/4" circle punch, markers, stamp-a-majig

We've been having a great time here - I love having my children off school! We all joined in with cleaning and decorating the house, went visiting relatives and exchanging presents, and made festive food together. One of the most popular activities was using the left-over marzipan from the Christmas cake to make petit fours which obviously revived playdough memories for the children.
We had a laugh over the scary pineapple and the strawberry that was the same size and me getting all muddled up and calling them plus fours (which are those funny breeches golfers wear!) but I think some of those fruit turned out beautifully!
Happy new year to you for Tuesday and I'll see you soon.
