Happy New Year 2018 - Creatalicious #130

Hi my friends.  Here it is, the last day of 2017!  I, for one, am glad to see it go and hope that 2018 is a much better year. It's a little noisy in my neighborhood. The people who live behind me are having a party in their backyard with music and singing!  I was hoping it was too cold for this sort of thing, but it looks like they have a fire pit out there. I can see flames. Hope they don't set their house on fire. Also some fireworks going off in the street over there.

I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas celebrations. I just got home last night from California and visiting with my oldest daughter, son-in-law and their youngest daughter. My other granddaughter and her husband were visiting his family in Arizona. Missed seeing them.

My card today is kind of doing double duty. That's kind of cheating, but with being ill and being away for Christmas I ran out of time and this one just fit the bill for two different challenges. I didn't even plan it that way, but turned out that way.

This is mainly for my Creatalicious Challenge card. The theme was Anything Goes  with optional Wishes. Also, I was the hostess for the Challenge Your Stash challenge this month, and my theme was to make a New Year's card without using any images of alcoholic beverages on it.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Penguin Friend (I thought this was a digital, but I can't find it in my stash)
  • Sentiment - computer generated
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Juniper Berry
  • Accessories - Lace and Rick Rack from my stash; circle punches
  • Copic Markers - B0000, B000, B00; B14, B60; E42, E44, E47; E50, E51, E53; C2, C3, C7; R01, R35, R46, R59; Y17, Y19, Y38, Y26.
Our generous sponsor for this challenge is

 Prize  -  $15 gift cert.

I hope that you'll join us in showing us your wishes card. Just head on over to the Creatalicious Challenge website and see what the rest of the Design Team has to show you and let's see your creation. You could be the winner of this prize or be picked as one of the Top 3. 

Also, Melanie is still looking for some new members for the Design Team. This is a great bunch of ladies to work with and we get to choose fun images or sometimes use our own images like I did for this one. There are two teams - one that posts on the 15th and one that posts on the last day of the month, so you'll only have to create one card each month.

I am submitting this card for the following:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Designs - Celebrations
Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle


  1. What a sweet card Maggie - and I do hope 2018 is all that you wish it to be

  2. Maggie, this card is adorable! The image is so sweet and the greetings are perfect. I hope 2018 is a much better year for you!

  3. What a cute image and card! I like the idea of a New Year's card without alcohol. Funny how I would make a card with alcohol, but it's been a few years since I imbibed. There are other ways to celebrate. I hope your neighbor's house didn't burn down. Happy new year!
