Love your cards! They're so festive and I love those sprinkles. I celebrated New Year's by making thank you cards.

Lovely card designs. I celebrated by spending the evening with my sister and BIL, as well as all of my kids and their spouses along with my husband. Basically, great family time.

Mindy Drummond

Celebrated at home with my boyfriend watching sports and crafting until a little before midnight, then we both stop whatever we are doing and watch the ball drop in Time Square. After that he usually falls asleep and I keep crafting lol. Love how fun both of your Birthday cards are, that Eat Cake is perfect! I don't know how I missed that stamp set but I definitely have to get it lol. Thanks for sharing, for the giveaway, and especially for all the inspiration you provide all year! Here's to a happy, crafty, wonderful 2019!! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us and a chance to win your prize! I'm new to this craft, so my goal for 2019 is to learn as much about it as I can.

I just started following you on Instagram. Thank you for the opportunity! I spent the first day of the year with my family, celebrating Christmas.

Wow! Your cards are fun! I love them both. Did you mention what the sprinkles are? My hubby and I were supposed to go to a low-key party on NYE to eat and play games but I am struggling with an injury on my leg and wasn’t up to going out. I spent most of the day and the next day in bed with my leg up. I hope that I will get better soon!


I followed you on Instagram (denahadoss). I like your style. New Year's day was spent doing as much "fun" stuff as possible because I've always heard that whatever you do on New Year's you'll be doing the rest of the year. Have a great New Year and TFS!

Also, a group shoots fireworks off a local mountain at midnight, and we always watch that, though this year we did it from inside, because it was SO COLD. Thanks for the chance to win, and cheers to you in 2019!
