it's the final countdown!

ok, if you don't know...this is the song i was referring to in my post title, you can here it here

i LOOOOVE 80's rock!!! (along with about 100 other genres! lol! i'm a music person!).

anyway, with that song in mind, i created a Happy New Year card, because it's getting close to the LAST day of 2014! insane!
this card is also up on the Newton's Nook Designs blog, so be sure to check it out! :)

isn't it sweet!! ha ha!
i used a star stencil and some white embossing paste to create the starry background. then i colored the basket images and newton with copics!
that newton is from the Hanging Around stamp set! and i just love that he's peeking in from behind the card base! sneaky little newton!

That basket with the champagne is from Basket of Wishes, and i thought it was just PERFECT to help ring in the new year! :) I popped it up for some dimension, and then added a happy stripped strip of washi under the card front! :)

do you have any new year's plans? how about resolutions? 
i don't usually make resolutions, but i do have a few goals i want to accomplish next year! :) mums the word on those! ;)

enjoy! and don't forget to wish Newton (and Hobbes!!) a happy new year on the Newton's Nook Blog, too! :)


  1. Awwww-dorable! Love the kitty peeking out and the fun star background! Purr-fect for New Years! Hope you have a great new year's!

  2. Right as I read your title I went, "Doo doo dooo do, do do do do dooo". Now I'll probably have it stuck in my head all day. :)
    Your card is so sweet with that hanging kitty and I love the textural dimension the stars add. Awesome job!

  3. How cute is this card! Love it :)

  4. This card is absolutely adorable and so creative!! I just love how little Newton is peeking out from the card. I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year's!

  5. chuckling....now you have that song stuck in my head..touche'

    Happy New Year!
