Happy New Year - Welcome to 2011

Happy New Year Everyone,

I hope you all had an enjoyable New Year with family and friends. We had a very quiet New Year celebration, that is if you exclude the loud bangs from the poppers my children insisted on letting loose at midnight, lol.
Already I have heard the talk about New Year Resolutions and the commercials for the latest and greatest diet programs and exercise equipment to help us all start a healthier New Year.
Now while I don't actually make resolutions because I tend to not stick to them, I do try and set myself a few simple goals to help me get started with the New Year. For example, this week my goal is to survive the children going back to school and getting the family back into a reasonable routine again. For me, that is a challenge, but one I see as doable and it will benefit the whole family.
Another goal I have set for myself is to set aside some time to create projects with my new Stampin' Up products that my family gave me for Christmas. This one will be even trickier when combined with my first goal, but I believe that I am up to the task.
So while I don't have anything new to show you that I have created recently, I do have a beautiful card that is featured on my Stampin' Up website that relates nicely with the New Year. This elegant card is actually a New Year's Invitation but when I saw it, I immediately thought engagement, wedding or even anniversary card.
You could replace "You're Invited" with an appropriate sentiment and you could also change the stamped image as well as the color theme to suit the occasion.
I just love the embossed background created with the Big Shot and the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing folder and the cute embellishment added to the stamped glasses created with a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a sparkling rhinestone from the Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
Here is the list of supplies used to create this beautiful card:
