Auld Lang Syne Part 2

New Year’s Eve 2020, should we celebrate the end of a stressful year or celebrate all the good things that have happened? Perhaps both? For our family, we welcomed a new member in September when my son Corey married Anna. We were able to take a family vacation in August, camping and 4-wheeling in Minog, Wisconsin. We continued working on remodeling out ‘shack’ at the lake. Many of us were ill in December 2019 and early January 2020, was it COVID-19? We will never know, but we all survived through it, thankfully.

The riots and unrest in the Twin Cities was way too close to home, only 35 miles away. The pandemic and the crazy political shenanigans enter our homes with the new every evening. I often wonder why we can’t all be nicer to each other. That’s part of why I love making cards. It’s all about reaching out to others with well wishes and encouragement.

Here are a few more card designs from my archives. Hope you enjoy a look back.

I remember loving using the Work of Art stamps to create backgrounds.

Two of these lovely ladies are no longer with us. We had a wonderful time together at convention.

Who can resist a Minion?

Wood You Be Mine

I fell in love with this guy! I even cut him out and he road around with me in my car.

From the Herd

I loved this stamp with these crazy animals.

Cozy Christmas

This cozy cabin with Santa and reindeer is my perfect Christmas.

Birthday Delivery

I remember being so sad when this cute set retired.

Hey Chick!

There is a cute set in this series in the new 2021 January to June catalog and I heard a rummer that this set may reappear. These girls like to hang out at The Roost.

Celebrate You Dies

It’s time to get going on Valentine cards and this simple layout is a good start for this year too.

Fold Back Pop Up Technique, one of my favorites.

Beautiful You Plus Lamp Post

I love the nostalgic feel of this card.

So Hoppy Together

These Sale-a-bration frogs were so stinking cute!

This simple layout is a classic.

This was a WOW, way over the top, not one I want to have to make again, but I love it card. It uses about 6 stamp set and was a special card for one of my grandsons.

Hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve. I know that my evening isn’t going to be any different than a normal year. My usual New Year’s Eve routine is to try to stay awake to see the ball drop on TV but fall asleep on the couch, wake up in the middle of the night with a stiff neck and then head to bed.

Have a good one!
