Rockin' New Year Hop - Celebrate in Style

Welcome to the final day of the Rockin' New Year Blog Hop! I hope you have some wonderful things planned for this evening! My husband and I will be staying in and watching an action flick and a chick flick and we order in pizza! We'll probably just let the movies run in the background while we play dominoes! I am really looking forward to it! 

I hope you got here from Celeste's blog! If not, start at the beginning HERE at Carol's blog

Thanks SO much to Jenny for coordinating this hop! These ladies are so talented! 

Recipe: 
White and pink plain card stock: Paper Trey Ink
Pink gems (on party hat): i-rock Swirls Stencil™ 
Stamp: Hero Arts™
Ink: Studio G™
Straw: from a delivery restaurant! :) 

I actually didn't cut anything with my Cricut on this one. The party hat is a scalloped bordered piece of card stock that came like that. I loved it and instantly thought, "party hat!". I embellished it with a brad and gem stones. I inked around the edges and popped it on the card.

I used a tutorial to make a party blower and thought it would be fun to attach it to the front of the card.

Lastly, I scored two lines on the pink paper for just a little touch of extra and skewed them in different directions! I hope you like it! :) 

Now head on over to the ever so talented and sweet: Dorcas' blog!

Remember to leave a comment on yesterday and today's post to win the cartridge! I will draw a winner on Monday to give people a chance over the weekend to comment. Make sure to come back and see if you were the winner!
