Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!!


Welcome back to my blog and welcome to 2017!!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday and were able to spend time with family.  I did and it was so awesome!  

So you know what happens on the first of every month right?  A new challenge at Noor! Design UK!!!  It's my FAVORITE, which if you follow my blog or my Facebook you already know is:


Heck so easy right?!! I didn't use a lot of supplies because I actually made a masculine card and let's face it, less is more.  And yup it was by choice!  😁😁😁  It's hubby's UNCLE's birthday on Dec. 31st so this year I finally made him a card.  I say finally because I'm usually burnt out at this time of year, and I am, but it came together nicely so it was good!

I also wanted to show you, if you have some of those gorgeous Pion "The Witching Hour" papers but don't celebrate Halloween, here is another way of using them for something other than Halloween!  I love doing that - I feel very clever when that happens.  LMBO!!  😏

I added a layer of design paper in the black oval, added the "Happy" sentiment from Mister Tom's Treasure and then filled it with glossy accents.  It's sooo smooth!

I used some Scrapiniec brick wall and covered it with Tim Holtz distress glitter - so "man glitter" and cut the wall to my liking.

It's nothing super fancy but I think a great guy card!!  Love this Dutch Doobadoo Dutch Shape Art Shield 2 A5 template too...kind of looks like a Route 66 sign doesn't it?    Fun!

The blogging world seems to have switched over to Facebook, which is unfortunate as we bloggers put a fair bit of time into our posts so you can see all the details of the items and more pictures.  Well, it is what it is and we have to keep up with the trends of showcasing for any design teams we are on.  I will keep doing both as this is also a great way for me to keep track and go back to remind myself of items or even color combo's I've used.  So I thank you for still stopping by when you can because it does take time and I recognize that.  Means so much to me you really have no idea!!!  💖
 Sending you a big happy new year hug!!!

Happy New Year. I love your card and it seems difficult to create a masculine card and not have "fluff" on it but still make it creatively beautiful.

I personally want to Thank you for keeping your blog and updating it. I don't very often but I do check every time I receive a email. I personally don't and never will have a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram account. Your statement is so true as more and more blogger's that we have followed faithfully for years have disappeared and on post on Social Media. All well and good but they forget that not all of us want to be part of those for personally reasons and I also have never bought into "I can't live without the latest cell phone" and I never have or will own one. I am amazed to sit somewhere whether it be on public transportation, the doctors office, a family dinner that everyone's face is buried in the phone just scrolling back and forth. What could be so went on perfectly before all of this. So hats off to you to sticking to your blog and at the same pacify those wouldn't will only follow you via social media. Have a wonderful year and I can't wait to see what your create this year.
