Happy New Year!

Hey, hey!

Here we are on the cusp of a brand new year and I thought these cute critters from the Impronte d'Autore Party Time set would make for a fun and playful way to wish my fellow card makers and colorists all the best in 2024. I recently got this set, and a few others, from Crafty Purple Frog and it still makes me so excited to have another option when adding to my collection of Impronte d'Autore clear stamp sets. The sentiment is actually from another set, Peace, Joy and Hope, that was in the same order so I could get up to free shipping. While the Party Time set is intended for birthday cards the only alteration I had to do to make this trio ring in the new year was wipe the ink away from the balloon that the bunny is holding and turn it into a sparkler instead. 

No matter how you choose to welcome 2024 tonight, I hope it finds you safe and well and optimistic about all of the possibilities a new year brings. Stay crafty my friends!
