New Year CARDS Magazine Challenge

Yard sale find: I went to a moving sale today and found these two storage units that would be perfect to put on top of my craft table. I've been looking for something to put my full size chalk inks in, where they would be easily accessible and visible. The lady originally said $12 for both, but I convinced her to bring it down to $10 for the both of them. They were a little dinged up, but that's okay with me. With a few swipes of a Lysol wipe, they were ready for my office. The lady had some animal print memo boards for sale as well. I had them in my hand, but at the last minute, put them back because I didn't think they'd go well with my yellow office.
Food: I tried this new baked oatmeal recipe tonight (baked peanut butter apple oatmeal), and yep, it's yummy.

RJ: I caught RJ in the closet again. He showed no shame.

Random thought: I'm glad that the Christmas season only come around once a year. Driving around with all the shoppers and extra cars around is really nerve wracking.

Card: Here's my take on this week's CARDS Magazine challenge featuring New Year cards. I decided to make a cone hat with confetti flying around. I originally was going to have confetti flying out of a cone, but then it didn't look right. Fortunately, I was able to turn the yellow triangle into a hat!
Card Specs:
Paper: My Mind's Eye- Countdown to Christmas
Punch: Recollections
Stickers: Basic Grey Micro Mono Stickers from the Basics collection
White Gel Pen: Inkssentials

Hey, that card is simple yet very beautiful! The polka dots, plus the "seam" as border is amazing~! And if you happen to look for some new year messages, feel free to check out my blog. Again, thumbs up to your creation.
