The first card is for Challenge Day 304 - Flashback Wednesday. The DT was to pick a challenge from 2010 and my DD, Kim picked, "Keep it Simple: One image, a sentiment, one embellishment, and limit the amount of space you use on the card to about 1/3 of the entire space available." She made a New Year's card so I did the same, only in a wine bottle shape.
The digital image on the inside is from the artist Jehanne (sorry, I couldn't find the blog again), the label is from The Graphic's Fairy (lots and lots of vintage images) and the bottle template is from Simon Says Stamps.

My second card is for 365 Cards, Day 305 Flashback Thursday, looking back at Challenge Day 111 - Stunning Silhouette...with a twist, picked by Hannah. The challenge is to use a silhouette on your card and create your card in only black and white
I remembered this tree background stamp I had purchased sometime ago by Cornish Heritage Farms and thought it would be perfect for making a silhouette. The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes by SU!
Besides 365 Cards, I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Frosted Designs with a challenge to use a quote

Saturday Challenge to uses buttons and bows.
My husband and I had a wonderful Christmas break with our daughter Kim and gran' puppy Malie. Kim is a most wonderful hostess and as always our trip was too short. Thanks Kim for letting me have the 'studio apartment' at your house, it gave me a small glimpse into the future! LOL!
Wishing everyone a joyous, happy and safe New Year with many more to come!
