Happy Near Yew!

uh.... Happy Yew Near??? Wait a minute, I can do this... Happy New Year!!
Yeah, yeah - that's the ticket!!

Ok, so I think the 'ol girl had one too many "'tinis". Whaddaya think? (he-he)

I just LOVE this card. Of course, I LOVE any card with my Stella but I really LOVE how this turned out. I started with some SU Very Vanilla and stitched on this great Cosmo Cricket DP using four different patterns from the Early Bird collection. The mat behind the four squares is from the same collection and I even cut my petite circle scallops from it as well. I stamped "Stella with an olive on top" from Stamping Bella onto some SU Very Vanilla CS and colored her with my Copics. I did a little shading around the edges with some Colorbox chalk ink leaving the Nestie die in place for that great little framed edge. Now her drink needed a little bubbly, so I added some Glamour Dust to her "tini" and her wand as well. This "cheers!"sentiment is from Stamping Bella too. I finished with this green polka dot ribbon, tied in a cute little bow. ....hic-cup!! *pah-don*
Don't forget to leave a comment below and I hope you have a SUPER DUPER Tuesday! (only one day to go! YAY!)
