Hay, Girl!

Happy New Year!  Did you have a fun and festive evening?  Luis and I had a quiet one at home but we did venture out onto the porch at midnight to watch the fireworks from the town across the harbor.  They're so gorgeous reflecting on the water!

I'm playing along with the sketch challenge at My Favourite Things and I cracked open a few new goodies for my card.  This MFT llama is so cute and I love the stepped up chevron die.  I coloured the llama with Copics and I used the sketch on a landscape oriented card so you could see as much of the chevrons as possible.

I'm also going to enter this at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where it's Anything Goes week.

Great way to start 2017, Jen -- with this bright, happy, and punny card! That stepped chevron die is very cool. I can see this with patterned paper for a real changed-up look. And that llama....what a hoot!! Gotta love that sentiment; I can practically hear my teens/twenties granddaughters saying this! Very cute! I think you've got a winner here! Happy New Year!! Bev

Such an amazing chevron--I have never seen that die. And, love love your fabulous llama. Reminds me of reading 'Is your mama a llama' to my daughters about a million times when they were little.
