A Card and Some Bling!

Happy New Year to you my friends! I celebrated my New Years with my little family. We devoured our steaks and lobster, played a few games, watched the countdown with Dick Clark, barely made it to midnight, had our quickie toast with sparkling grape juice, and off to bed we went! (Sounds pretty darn exciting doesn't it? Then to ring in this new year, I got injured. Yep......at about 12:05. And in a pretty stupid way too! I was leaning over my bed, petting my dog, when Brian comes in, trips on our decorative pillows, I turned to see what the heck he was doing (cuz he is 6ft 4 and a pretty big guy), and he head butts me in the nose. Let's just say I cried like a little baby! I have a little cut from my glasses and my nose is bruised but not broken! Thank goodness! He felt really bad, so I've been milking it just a bit! : )

Anyway, on to my card. I love this coffee set from JustRite. It is perfect for all my coffee drinking girlfriends out there. I colored it in with my Prismas twice and cut out the 2nd cup. I used Crystal Effects on top of it and popped it up with a pop dot. I used my Nesties and airbrush for the circles. I did a bit of machine stitching too.

And......what would the holidays be without a bit of bling? I found this amazing new jewelry site called LuShae Jewelry. They have some beautiful pieces at reasonable prices! This is the piece I had to have! (This picture taken before my nose was practically broken! LOL)
Here it is up close! LOVE IT!
Well.....we are off to see Avatar with the family......hope we can sit that long!

Have a fabulous Friday and weekend!!!! Hugs to all of you!!!!!! : )

I FEEL your pain! In high school, I caught a batted-yes, batted-softball with my nose. It was broken-and swollen-and purple, green, yellow...so I know how bad that hurt!

Love the card-and the necklace. Hopefully hubby is taking good care of you! Blessings, Sharon

I hate to say it but that sounded hilarious! That is so something that I would do, not you. A total comedy of errors.
Gorgeous necklace.
