Bella Thanks...

This is one of those cards that was totally different in my head! Once I started I realized I had no hope of my original layout so I modified a card I made when I was in the States visiting my BFF Karen. I was there in Oct we went to the Madonna concert in Boston AND we went to Joanne B's for a class - I think I was more excited about meeting Joanne since I was a lurker on her blog for a very long time!
The card is all SU products; the stamp set is Bella Blossoms & the DS paper is Bella Rose. The image is stamped in Riding Hood Red & Kiwi Kiss; I stamped the flower twice and then popped it up.

We have new neighbours; they moved in just before Christmas so I took some baking over and introduced myself; this is what my neighbours did when we moved to Toronto and I really appreciated so I made myself go out of my comfort zone and knock on their door. They have just moved here from Houston; and they of course they moved during our cold miserable -30's C. stretch. ANYWAYS they are really nice & have asked us over to watch football on New Years day so I shall take this card with me to thank them (although being a good Canadian girl I am torn because we are invited over while the "Winter Classic" game between Chicago & Detriot is on)

Hope you all have a fantastic New Years Eve; we are going to the hockey game tonight - I am really excited because my Edmonton Oilers are in town to take on the Flames; GO OILERS!!

Thanks for stopping by & have a very safe New Years

Dana
