Would we ever wish Have a Decrepit New Year? I don't think so...we wish nothing but the best...for most people:) Some of us are probably happy to see 2015 go while others had a great year. I noticed my year seemed to be a resounding....meh. I need to do more, not sure what, but I want to create more cards.
Yup, my First card for the year and it is a Christmas Card! You thought it was over didn't ya? Oh well, nothing like getting started right now for next year.

I enjoyed making this card to get me back into the swing of things. I used my Pencils on the Furbaby, the cuddlebug, ribbon, fussy cut out holly and crystals. Traditional red and green and why not. Let's see what the year will bring. I am looking forward to making tons of cards, talking about film, the A to Z in April, moving my ass since chocolate called my name all Christmas long and having a great year. Have a great year filled with blessings, health and joy.
I might wish someone a decrepit New Year if I hated them. I could draw it in goat's blood on the side of their car. Well, with that said, Happy New Year! May your 2016 be considerably less crappy than everyone else's.ReplyDelete
Also, I love the card. The cat is so well done. My (drawn) cats always look like something a 6 year old colored for his mom in kindergarten.
OK I could never draw like you which makes me laugh out loud every time. Glad you like my cardDelete
I love the card too. Trust ABFTS to come up with that idea - why goat's blood I wonder?ReplyDelete
I do wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year Birgit and I won't paint it on your car either.
I thought this link might interest you. It's full of scallop recipes http://www.foodandwine.com/slideshows/scallops?xid=NL_DISH010316ScallopRecipesDelete
I am going to check out the link for sure. ABFTS have unique minds which is what I love:)Delete
Very cute card.ReplyDelete
Any thoughts as to your theme for the Challenge?
Thank you and yes-similar but different this year:)Delete
Hi, dear Birgit! Happy New Year! (It's already whizzing by and will soon be over! :)ReplyDelete
I don't know of anyone who had a fantastic 2015. Every year manages to be a mixed bag and no happy occasion goes unpunished. :)
I am loving your kitty kard with its eye pleasing color combo. That delightful greeting card put me in the holiday spirit, so let me be the first to wish you a very Merry Christmas 2016! :)
I wish you a great year and a wonderful week ahead, dear friend BB!
In the words of one great film.."Christmas is not just a day but a state of mind". Glad you like my card and have a great weekDelete
A prrrrrrrretty card. Let the 2016 puns begin! People must be telling us something. The Husband and I only got one box of chocolates and it's almost gone. So I'm thinking we ought to have French Toast for dinner. Let the 2016 nonsequiturs begin as well!ReplyDelete
We got tons of chocolate which I have eaten more than my share. Love the puns-keep'em comingDelete
Great card. And it's good to start your Christmas stuff now. Then it'll all be ready this coming December.ReplyDelete
You are so right. I fell down last yearDelete
So cute with the card :) I bet it is one of those things; you always have to keep on top of getting cards done if you want them ready for the holidays or birthdays :) I hear sign ups for A/Z are January 25th. Got pretty much all the letters figured out, just have to collect what else is needed :)ReplyDelete
Hope it is a very happy (and not decrepit new year!)
I always strive for happy-better anyway for the mind and soul. Yes, start now and that way you are ahead of the gameDelete
Your cards are so pretty. Have a Very Happy New Year.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Same to youDelete
lol there may be one or two I'd wish a decrepit new year. Can't go wrong with a cat indeed.ReplyDelete
Cats are always fun, whether they are in winter or in the sunDelete
You are ahead of me this year Birgit...my first card is still spread out on my desk waiting for me to stick it all together...loving your kitten card ....so sweet! XxxxReplyDelete
I have a feeling you will surpass me:) Glad you like my cardDelete
Happy New Year! Love the card. However, I can't decide if you're early or late, lol.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year! I am both-late and early-let's keep one guessing:)Delete
Love the card. Love that you're already A to Z planning!ReplyDelete
Happy new year, Birgit!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you tooDelete
That is just too cute! Love it.ReplyDelete
I'm afraid I'm still wearing my chocolate. Haven't exercised in weeks.
My butt seems to be expanding...as I have another piece of chocolateDelete
The best time to get a head start on next Christmas is right after Christmas. :)ReplyDelete
That kitty on the card is super cute.
Glad you like little MauriceDelete
That is so adorable!!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas extra early. Smiles.
Happy new year, Birgit! And lovely card :)ReplyDelete
Thank you and Happy New YearDelete
Happy new year Birgit! What a lovely card, cats make everything cuter :DReplyDelete
They do don't they-animals are specialDelete
I love the matching green eyes and holly leaves. I've never seen a cat with green eyes before it looks very unique, almost supernatural.ReplyDelete
I've had cats with green eyes. They're very pretty.Delete
We have a green-eyed cat also and they are really neatDelete
Hope you're having an excellent Tuesday.ReplyDelete
And regarding your comment at my place: I'm sure dolphin eyes can't compare with yours;)
OMG-thank you so much:) Very sweetDelete
Seems like so many folks had a tough 2015 that it's been pretty easy wishing folks a happy 2016. We always want life to improve!ReplyDelete
BTW, the card looks great:)
Thank you and glad you like it.Delete
I know! 2015 was the bummer of a year for me. SO glad it's over. I hope 2016 will be better. Has to be. And you're off to a great start with this cutie. Thank you for your friendship, your words of encouragement and all the virtual hugs. HAPPY NEW YEAR, friend! May all your dreams and desires come true in 2016.ReplyDelete
Thank you so very much! Yes you had a bummer year but now you have Charlie and his film exploits to cheer up 2016 never mind the other 2 fur nuts:) They are just the blessings to our lives aren't they:)Delete
Aww, you can't go wrong with a Christmas Kitty. Love the card!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Birgit.
Thank you and Happy New Year to you alsoDelete
Awe...I love the vintage look and the furry kitty.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a great New Year. Chocolate called out to me too - way too much from November to the very end of the year, and I answered the call valiantly.
Happy new year!ReplyDelete
All the best in creativity.
I really do not do the New Year's Resolution or year reflection thing, and I prefer to focus on day to day adventures. I feel every day can be a new beginning, and this living in the moment has helped me to stop obsessing about the past. I used to do that a lot, and I am still trying to break this habit.ReplyDelete
The past is what was, best to try to leave it where it is and focus on something beautiful-The future always hold the journeyDelete
Just think, NEXT Christmas you'll already have a card.ReplyDelete
Well if you're going to make lots of cards then you have to start early. Might as well start with Christmas since it's still fresh in your mind. Such a cute card. Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Yes and thank you! Have to start early:)Delete
Happy new year to you, Birgit! Hope 2016 brings you many blessings! Your little kitty card is adorable!!ReplyDelete
Happy New year! Glad you like the card:)Delete
No decrepit new year for you - I hope yours started out with a bang and is only getting better! Such an adorable little kitty card.ReplyDelete
It's going to be a good one... nay, a GREAT one for you and I and our furry motley crew! HAPPY NEW YEAR, friend!ReplyDelete
