New Year, Pretty New Stuff!

Happy New Year!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas.
I received a beautiful card and these gorgeous embellishments from

I have been just amazed by all of her elegant creations since she joined the DT
Please go by her blog and check out what I mean!
I don't know how she does it but she has flowers to match every single card she makes!
And....she finds the most beautiful lace I have ever seen, what about that lovely metal corner embellishment!!! 
I am a bit ashamed to post this card because it could never measure up to one of Sheryl's but I gave it my best try.
The stamp I used is
"Knit me Pretty"
and you can get it for awesome price
The message inside the card says

"The task ahead of us
is never as great as
the power behind us.
God's answers are wiser
than our prayers."

A very dear friend inspired this card by reminding me that
God has a plan for me, regardless of how bad I think things
are. I know she will read this, so "thank you friend" for
supporting me and reminding me to keep my  faith in  our Lord!  
 Please join us at
and show us something NEW!
Thanks for stopping by!

I would like to enter this card in the Party Time Tuesday Challenge this week.
I  had so much fun looking at the DT and entry cards last time that I thought I would try it out again.
Their challenge this week is also to use something NEW.

Stacy, don't ever underestimate your talent ever again because your card is GORGEOUS!!! I love the gatefold style, your beautiful coloring and those stunning embellishments and lace. Having beautiful embellies is one thing, knowing how to place them on a card with perfection is priceless! Job well done my friend. Happy new year too.

Hi Stacy! Your post brought tears to my eyes. You are way too flattering and kind. Linda said it all perfectly! Don't ever underestimate you awesome talent! This card is stunning! It's your colored image and choice of dp and your fun gate fold and your very talented and creative design! TAKE A BOW!! I LOVE IT!
It's perfectly "balanced out" and very tastefully done.

Warm Hugs, Sheryl
