Happy New Year...

Hi everyone and Happy New Year!! Can't believe 2011 is here...ten years has passed since the "millenium"...seems like it was just year 2000 yesterday! 2010 seemed to have flown by so quickly (like all the past years), and one of the many fond memories during this past year was starting my own blog and meeting so many sweet, talented, and generous ladies! Thank you to my followers and all the sweet comments. It truly is inspiring!! *•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*•-:¦:-•:*'''''*:•-:¦:-•*!!*

Now, onto my card...




This image is from Ching-Chou Kuik's collection called Koi, and you can find this and many other beautiful images here at Sweet Peas Stamps. I actually got this stamp a while ago, but was kinda scared to ink it up because I didn't think I could color it like the beautiful samples made by the DT on the Sweet Peas Stamps Blog. But because the image itself is gorgeous, it wasn't as difficult as I thought. I saw this zigzag fold on Kim's blog, and thought it would be perfect layout to highlight the image.

This card fits these challanges:
Lollipop Crafts - Fancy folds
In a Sweet Dream - Ribbons and bows
Stamp Something - Something with glitter


Wishing everyone a healthy, happy new year!!
Thanks for stopping by! ;)
