Happy New Year - Exploring Cricut

Happy Monday and Happy New Years Eve!  It is challenge day over at Exploring Cricut.  Today's challenge is to create a New Year's project.  Here is what I came up with:


Cute huh?  The teddy is from Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  It is all cut at 3 1/2 inches.  It is hypothetically possible that I might have put the sash on upside down - but we won't tell anyone that :)  The sparkly patterned paper is from CTMH and the rest of the paper is from Recollections.  I did a bunch of doodling with my Sakura Jelly Roll pen and used one of Mary's fabulous Cardz TV Stamps for the sentiment.  It is from the "Classic Christmas" set, one of my favorites!


I hope you pop over to Exploring Cricut and play along with us.  I would love to see what you create!  Also, be sure to remember that there is new inspiration every day at Exploring Cricut , you can always find amazing ideas from all the talented designers!

A challenge or two for my cute card:
Catch the Bug - holiday/seasonal 
Just us Girls - sparkly new year (the patterned paper is sparkly)
Little Claire's - new year
Brown Sugar - happy new year
Fussy and Fancy - furry friends
Divas by Design - anything goes
Paper Pretties Wednesday - happy new year

A la prochaine...

Super Cute! Every time I see one of these Baby New Years, I think of that old Rudolph cartoon where they help save him. Do you remember that cartoon? I know...I am dating myself.

Happy New Year,
