Thank You Kindly

Everyone ready for the new year?  I have to work & then we'll spend a quiet evening at home--maybe stay up to welcome in 2013--you never know if I'll still be awake!  Whatever you do, stay safe & enjoy the holiday.  
I missed quite a few PTI MIM challenges this year, so I had a lot to choose from for this week's 2012 All a Carte challenge.  I decided on #71: Bordered Sentiments with Betsy Veldman.  Her videos are always great & I love her cards.  This time I pretty much CASED hers, but used the gorgeous roses from The Sweet Life set stamping in VersaMagic Pink Petunia, Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy & Memento Rhubarb Stalk.  The sentiment is from Quilled Elegance & is stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray while the lines above & below it are drawn with Distress Ink Marker pumice stone.  The printed paper is by Sassafras Lass.  Thanks for coming by--I look forward to reading your comments.  I'll be checking your blogs on my days off.  Happy New Year!

So pretty, Greta! I love those roses - and the paper and lace are beautiful too! Nicely done!

Hubby and I usually fall asleep on New Year's Eve, before midnight too - makes me feel old!

What a beautiful card Greta. I'm planning to stay up... only 3 1/2 hrs to go here now... enjoy the evening, and hope 2013 is everything you wish for.
