Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! It has been so nice have family time with all my kids home at one time. I have to say that this past year has definitely had it ups and downs and that I am ready to move on!

Certainly one of the most exciting events for me this year was becoming an official member of the My Favorite Things Design Team, truly a dream come true! And I am excited to see what MFT has planned for the new year. Be sure to stop by Kim's blog! She has some exciting news to share!

I used the MFT set, Girls Night Out, to kick off the New Year. I image is colored with Copics and the dresses are paper pieced. I used a glitter pen to give the glasses a little sparkle. Pretty flocked paper, gold lace and ribbon, and black rhinestones finish off the card.

Here a look at the inside, a little more flocked paper and sparkle! So "Here's to Good Friends"! Thank you so much for all your encouraging and supportive comments!
