Pickle with Tipple says Happy New Year :-)

Hi all, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and hope you have a fabulous New Year.  Have you got any plans for this evening and tomorrow ? Any New Year Resolutions ?

We are having some friends round for dinner this evening and then I am intending to spend tomorrow slothing in front of the telly and maybe play a few games of Yahtzee, my parents bought it for hubby for Christmas, it's a great game :-)

Anyways, ,,, Happy New Year with Pickle,,,, Cheers !!!  :-)

This Wild Rose Studio 'Pickle with Tipple' is an oldie but goodie and I think is a perfect image for a New Year Card !  I added some Polar White Flower soft to his pom-pom and trim and added just the right amount of star dust sparkle to the champagne :-) The sentiment was printed on the Silhouette Cameo using a glitter pen.

Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year and hope that 2014 is a good one for all :-)

I made this to enter todays CAS challenge over on the Splitcoast Stampers Site :-) We are asked to CASE a card in Jen's Gallery, making it CAS, and I chose THIS ONE

  I used the same 'Have a Ball' image as I did on the original post. I had stamped it and coloured it at the time but was going to bin it as I had made an oopsie on one of the baubles, but then thought 'GLITTER',, now we all know that glitter hides a multitude of sins ,,, what would we do without it ?? :-)

I still think Monica is so clever balancing all those baubles on her nose, even though she did drop one she still deserves a gold medal in my opinion :-)

Do you use Washi Tape ? It has become one of my most fave products of 2013,,, that together with twine, sticky stuff embossing powder, embossing paste and sequins ,,, What are your fave products ? 

I would love to know just in case I have missed something fabby :-)
