Happy New Year!! Exploring Cricut Challenge

Gosh, can you believe that this year is ending tonight at midnight? Where has this year gone. Seems like we just rang in 2012!! Grandma always said that the older you are, the faster time flies by. Didn't believe then, but I sure do now!!!
To ring in the New Year, the Exploring Cricut Design Team have made "Happy New Year" projects to share with you. And we would so love for you to join in on the fun. Just create a new card, layout or papercraft project welcoming in 2013. You have until 10pm, EST on Saturday, January 5th to link.
I'm not one to make and send out New Year's cards, so this was a true challenge for me. I had to put a lot of thought into this one. I decided to go with the 'Happy New Year' sentiment cut from Celebrate With Flourish cartridge. It is in the #2 spot on the overlay. I cut it at 1.75 inches. I wanted something behind it and came up with the clock. I cut it from the Designer Calendar at 3.5 inches. It can be found on page 49. Using my Gypsy Girl, I hid the number cutouts on one of them so I would have a solid back to my clock. I hunted through my stash, and of course I didn't have anything that said or related to the New Year. I did find this fireworks paper. Hey, they shoot off fireworks to bring in the New Year, so it works. I popped up the sentiment with one thickness of foam tape. And that's it.
Head over to Exploring Cricut and check out what my DT Sisters and Brother and have created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! Then head to your crafty space and create something to share with us. Looking forward to seeing what 'cha create!
Hope you all have a very Happy and Safe New Year!!!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!!!! :)
