Love Bugs in the New Year!

Happy New Year Stampers!

I hope you are ushering 2012 in with family and friends...or both!  We have spent the day relaxing and I love it!  We had a quiet New Year's Eve here at our house and stayed up to watch the ball drop in Times Square...had a few sips of champagne and then went to bed.  :-)  Whew!  Today I've been working on some new and exciting things that I'll be sharing in the next week or so.  I thought I'd share this new "critter" with you today though.
I don't think the reindeer hooves were even off my roof before the stores had switched everything over to Valentine's Day!  I'm always sad to take down all the decorations from Christmas but I have to say it's nice getting things organized.

Anyway....  I digress.....

Here's a new "suit"ably sweet critter....  Her name is Rosie! (named by Brittany)  Rosie was inspired by a wonderful stamper, Gretchen Barron.  I love her style and it definitely makes me want to head down to my stamp room and get busy creating..

This is a pocket card..... see that big heart in the upper right hand corner?  

You just pull it up and....

Ta Daaaaaa!  Isn't she sweet?  I love cards that are made with different folds etc. so this was right up my alley. I hope it inspires you to maybe try a new fold or a new style that's outside your comfort zone.  You never know what will happen when you do.

Ok....don't forget!  Only a couple more day left to order products from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  If there are things that are on your "Gotta Have It" list in there....hurry by my ONLINE STORE and order them before they're gone.  :-)

Alrighty....Rosie and I will be heading back down to my stamp room and see who else we can come up with!

Have a magical 2012!


  1. Happy New Year, Michelle!! I just LOVE "Rosie"! Are you willing to share how you made her? I can see most of what you used, but what did you use for the antenea? I have never made a "pocket" card and would love to try! Thank you for sharing and have a great 2012!!\
    Take care,
