Rosie D's Design Team Call

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE everyone!!!

There is a call out for a new Design Team member over at Rosie D's Challenge Blog so I thought I'd try out for the position. We are asked to create a New Year's card creation and one altered item. I decided to coordinate the two into a gift item for my neighbor. I just loved the color on this wine bottle so that was the basis for my color scheme as well as the coctail on my card ... a Blue Hawaiian perhaps???
Thankfully, I found time this morning to finish my project ... shew, none too soon ... since tonight is New Year's Eve! LOL!! The digi images used on my projects are from the Delicious Doodle Shoppe which are designed by Teri Sherman. I have used DCWV Glitter Sweet designer paper for the background on both my card & the wine bottle.

After printing my images, I used a Fiskars swivel craft knife to cut them out. The coctail drink was colored with Prisma Pencils & Gamsol and although I don't think you can tell by the angle of my photo, there was Crystal Effects used on the Blue Hawaiian drink and the umbrella has been popped up. (click on the image for a larger view) The embellishments I have added are various colored sequins and holiday curling ribbon. I've also used Silver Stickles on the 2010 sentiment positioned on the top o the wine bottle. New Years always calls for a touch of sparkle, right??

Here's wishing you & your family a wonderful, properous New Year! I know you've heard me say it before, but we are really looking forward to the new year since my dear husband is now Cancer Free!!

Enjoy your evening and please be safe!! We will be staying home, watching the ball drop ... and of course toasting each other with a little glass (or two) of Asti! We are expecting more snow over the weekend here in NE Ohio ... so I should have lots of time to play with my new Christmas crafting goodies! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


  1. What a great set you've created for New Year's. I love this! Good luck with the DT call! hugs, Angela

  2. I'm jealous - new crafting goodies! All I got was a housecoat and bottle of wine! I shall have to save up the pennies to visit my craft shop in the new year.
    So chuffed you used my images for your creations - fab job!!
    I was going to try out for that DT, but decided against it in the end. I think I am on enough DT's already! LOL
    Have a great night hun - look after yourself in all that snow (we had some more today too!)
    BIG hugs,
    Teri xx
