Minutes to Midnight at Shelly's Images

Wow! Can you beleive 2010 is almost behind us?! Where did the year go! Before we know it, we'll be celebrating a New Year! I want to take this time to thank all of my followers for stopping by to visit this year, and for all the wonderful comments!

This week, at Shelly's images, we are celebrating the end of 2010 and welcoming in the New Year, with Shelly's "Minutes to Midnight" image. This is the perfect image for those New Year's Cards and is very versatile. You could make a fun and different anniversary card with it as well. Minutes to Midnight is on sale for a special price, today only, in the Shelly's Images store, and while you're at the shop, browse around and see all of the great images Shelly has to offer!

Of course, I had to do a New Year's card for this fabulous image! I used the sketch at The House That Stamps Built, for my card layout. Both papers are from my stash. I love the cream, green, and metallic gold paper. It seemed perfect for a New year's Celebration! My image is colored with Promakers, with sparkle and glitter added to the image with a clearstar gelly roll pen. I've added two piece of metallic gold cardstock behing the image, for extra shine. The celery green ribbon is from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes set and is punched using the word window punch and the modern label punch, also by Stampin Up. I've mounted the sentiment with foam mounting tape for dimension. The skittles (also known as Dew Drops) were hand dyed by me with "Bottle" green alcohol inks.

I made this card for my friend Erica, in Florida. We met online in a game a few years ago and have become close friends.

  2. I like the green color and the triangle is a great touch. Thanks for joining Pattie's Creations Design Challenge this week. Merry Christmas and happy New year.

  3. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday period.

  4. Sammi - I saw this as your DT at Shelly's Blog. I love it, and the image reminds me so much of my Dad, he was a jeweler and watchmaker. He had a clock like that one, so I am partial to this image. Brings back memories.
    Happy Holidays!
    Thanks for playing in our challenge!
