Happy New Year!!!

I apologize that I have been MIA!!!  But when you have three gorgeous girls like these in the picture visiting, who could resist.....

Ava's Mom (Kayla - Our Daughter)
Ava (2 1/2 weeks old) 
Megan (Ava's Aunt - Our Daughter)

But now that two have gone home and the other has gone back to school, we need to get back to work.  Bummer!!!  But in the meantime, I have a few exciting things to share with you all.  I won two different entries over the past 2 1/2 weeks. 

My first one was with DL Art.    Diana's challenge was Music.  Below is a picture of the card that I entered:

Now for today's project.  I made this card in honor of each and everyone of you.  I would like to "Thank You" all for following me, referring me, and choosing me as a winner of the your challenges.  2012 was an amazing year, but I can already feel that 2013 is going to be even better of a year.  So without further ado, here's to you:
Kraft cardstock (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") Standard A2
Green cardstock (4" x 5 1/4")
Yellow patterned paper (3" x 3 3/4")
Green patterned paper (3" x 3 3/4")
Cricut Cartridge Wild Card - On page 49 <Thanks/phrase> I cut this image at 9 1/2" out of brown cardstock.  Took my white gel pen and added some dots.
Add some Recollection brown pearls.

Before adhering everything to the base of the card I wrapped brown ribbon around to hide the connection of the two patterned papers and tie a knot.  Refer to upper photo if you have any questions.
Challenges I've entered into:
Casual Fridays - Thank you
DL Art - Thankful Thursday January
3 Girl Jam - Anything Goes
2 Sister Challenge - Anything Goes
Little Scrap Pieces - Anything Goes
