CUTplorations January Challenge

Hey everyone!  It's the 5th of January already!  School doesn't go back into session until the 10th for my son, so lot's of time left to play!

Today we start a new challenge over at CUTplorations.  Our photo inspiration is an appropriate one for the start of the New Year, I think.  One that speaks to me of celebration.  Check it out...

I love the look of the glass!  I loved all the black and gold too.  This is what I came up with...

I stamped my drink glass (Party Mates set) twice in black and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added some white highlights with a white gel pen.  I added some "bubbles" with a gold pen.  I die cut the sentiment (Celebrate Word Die) from black cardstock and attached to my card.  Lastly, I added a strip of gold glitter tape.  Its a fun New Year's card that could also be used for a birthday or even a wedding card.

Please, take a little trip over to the main blog and check out the rest of the DT's amazing cards.  I'm so lucky to be among such talented people!

There has been a few changes to the prizes this year.  Here's all the details:

- there's a $10 gift certificate to the winner voted by the Inspiration team
- there's a $5 gift certificate each to the 2 top picks
- If there are 30 or more entries, there will be one random winner of any 2 CUTplorations word/phrase dies used by the DT in that month's post.

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit today.  Thanks so much for dropping by!

Guess what?!  Now, over at the STAMPlorations store, you can use my personal STAMPlorations discount code to save 20% off stamps, stencils and dies!  You can use it on regular and sale priced items.  However, it cannot be combined with any other discount codes.  Just enter in STAMPGIRLKIM in the discount code spot and you are good to go!  :-)  Happy shopping!
