~Happy 2016~

Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Saturday morning in January to you. Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
I think I have turned the corner with this head cold. Yesterday I did pretty much nothing but rest and had some delicious chicken soup. It's just such comfort food when you are sick with a cold. Although I have read that there are healing properties in chicken soup. I am no authority but it does make you feel better.
My hubby and I prepared the soup together and now we have a bit stock pot full. So we can enjoy it over the next several days. Perfect winter food!!
Speaking of turning the corner, I have done that with all the Christmas cards I have been showing. I had a few more but they were just variations of others I had previously shown. So now I can move to the new years cards I created.
This one I made for the CC562 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose black, gold and silver for her color palette. Optional was to make a new years card.
For this card I used the MFT die sun, moon and stars. I saw this card on Pinterest and used it for inspiration. I cut the star trail directly into the black cardstock so there is some sparkle from the silver card base. It just doesn't show well in this photo. 

My happy word is from the "happy hellos" die from MFT and the 2016 is the little numbers die also from MFT.  Scattered a few gold sequins to complete this card.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time...................God bless.
card details:
Paper: silver, black (Stampin'-Up) 
Paper Size: A2 
Accessories: sun, moon and stars, happy hellos, little numbers dies (MFT), gold sequins (Darice)
