*Yay! My card was chosen as the winner of the CASology challenge #25. So my card is now featured in the winner post found here. I’m also invited to be a guest designer next week there. What a great start to a very happy new year! *

Happy Friday Eve! Hope you are having a great start to a very happy New Year. 


This morning I made a very clean and simple card to enter in the 10 Minute Craft Dash #9 challenge. To make the panel of my card, I cut the white cardstock to 3″×3″. Then, I scored each of the four edges at the 1/8 inch mark from the outer edges of the panel using a Martha Stewart scoring board. Next, I stamped the sentiment which is from Hero Arts’ Holiday Sayings stamp set.


To create a focal point, I stacked up the Candi, the paper crafting embellishment dots, from Craftwork Cards. Since these cute/sweet little paper dots were new to me, I had hard time arranging and adhering the Candies onto the panel. It took me much longer than I expected, 9 minutes and 57 seconds, to finish my card.(Sigh!) FYI, I mixed Candi Britannia and Covent Garden on purpose since it has shiny gold lines and silver stars. That reminded me of the fireworks on New Year’s Eve. Hope you can feel the festive vibe and excitement of hope from the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year with crafting!

      FYI, I saw you on facebook this morning and found out you needed a few more entries to go. So I started making a card. (To be honest, I was afraid I couldn’t make it in time.) I’m so glad I submmited my card in time and that makes you achieve one of your goals. You owe me! Ha-ha! Kidding!
