Happy New Year 2017! Blogging Friends Blog Hop!

Happy New Year!
Welcome to another fabulous year of Blog Hopping!
How exciting is it to start off the New Year with a Blog Hop!
We are also welcoming Guest Blogger Janet Wakeland! I check out her Blog regularly, and love all her projects! I first found her Blog a while back when I was researching the New to Stampin Up Project Life. 
I hope you click on all the Blogs and see everyones fabulous projects!
This month we are featuring the New Occasions Catalogue and Sale A Bration Catalogue. You are sure to find insperation from all these talented SU Demos!
Please remember to leave a comment, we all love hearing from you!
Now onto my card. As many of my friends know, I order my new product from the catalogue when it goes live, so for todays card, I borrowed my Upline, Leanne's stamp set for the following card.
I made a stack of these cards for my Club Ladies! I was going to send out Christmas cards but I have never made a New Years card.... ever! After I made the first 2 for my 2 Secret Sisters, I wan't to make more! 

I used the stamp from the New Balloon Adventures for the sentiment on the front of the card and the inside of the card to welcome the ladies of my Card Club class to another great year ahead!

Stamps: Balloon Adventures, Tin of Tags (Retired)
Cardstock & Ink: Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate, Whisper White, Silver Glitter Paper
Number of Years Framelit Dies, Big Shot
Dimentionals, Tombow Glue
Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Basic Jewels

My second card turned out completely different from where it started. I am starting a new year of Secret Sister card swapping and I had intended to use the new Dragon Fly Framelit Dies which I had cut out, but it turned out to be too big to use. So I improvised and used the Awesomely Artistic Dragon Fly, and stamped it twice on Vellum Cardstock and fussy cut it out, layered them with glue dots, added Copper Thread behind them and popped it up on Dimentionals.

I love how it turned out! A simply simple card with stunning results!
I do hope you give it a try!

Thank you for stopping by! 
I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!
