Ring in the New Year Blog Hop



Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to the Ring in the New Year Blog Hop created by the SUPER sweet Jill from Everyday is an Occasion.  Thanks for having me Jill!
If you popped over for a visit then you’re in luck we are celebrating the New Year with a hop! If you would like to join you can begin at Holly’s over at Ribbon's and Glue.
If you have been following along you should have come from Holly's at Ribbon's and Glue.
The idea behind this blog hop is to use something "new". My sweet Hubby purchased some goodies for me from My Creative Time and I was so excited to use them.  I come from a HUGE Italian family and every Holiday revolves around the BEST Italian food, except one J New Years Day. My Aunt who happens to be Japanese cooks up a New Years feast of Sushi, mochi, seaweed and so many other items. So I thought I would bring a little gift for all of us to use.
I wanted something simple since I needed 30.

I used MCT curly label & stitched die & stamp from the MCT small talk set.

I also made some fun cards for the gifts using the MCT small talk set

The Martini cut is from the Jubilee Cricut Cartridge & the silver glitter was in my stocking - thanks Santa :)


In honor of the New Year and a fun Hop I would like to giveaway a $15.00 Micheals Gift card so you can purchase a little something new:) Just leave a comment and be a follower of my blog :)
