Happy New Year


Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone is well! Let me just say I promise this card looks so much better in person.  I just couldn't get the lighting right, oh well. So, I really wanted to create a card with a clock. I looked and looked through my handbooks and just couldn't find on that suited me. So I decided to use clipart.  I just printed this clock on kraft paper and then cut it out with a circle punch. Hope you like it!
