3CT46 - It's Time To Celebrate

Hello and welcome to the last 3CT Challenge of 2009 - Wow this year seems to have flown by for me (what about you?) - For our challenge this week Kerry chose the theme: New Years or Celebration.  -  My card can be used for either a New Years card or a Celebration card.  I just love the bright, cheery colors and hope you do as well.

This card is also being used for Hope's Cupcake Inspiration challenge this week.  Aren't these delightful cupcakes.  So festive and bright.  Perfect for a celebration.  I went with the colors as my inspiration even though I used red in place of the pink on the cupcakes.  The paper I chose is from: Imaginisce - Baseball Diamonds/Let's Pretend collection.

My focal image is from Whiff of Joy.  I think that little mouse is just so charming and adorable with it's colorful party hat. I stamped the hat twice and cut one image out and mounted it over the other with foam mounting tape. The image was colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and I highlighted the circles with Spica Glitter Pens.

The sentiment is a Rub-On from the Chit Chat rub-ons by Stampin'Up!
I added a small punched star, 3 Chili Sprinkles and some Lime Green ric-rac to complete my card. 

Don't forget to stop by Kerry's blog and check out the other DT members cards.  Be sure to leave some comment lovin' and help ring out the old year and ring in the new.

As we draw to a close the year 2009 I'd like to take a few minutes to thank all my Blog Readers and Friends for stopping by my blog this year.  I have really enjoyed sharing my cards/projects with you and look forward to doing so in 2010.  You are a BIG part of my life and I truly appreciate each and every one who comes, leaves comments and supports me as well.  Thank you again and may you have a safe & Happy New Year's Eve.
