2021 ~ Lucky Cats!


Hi friends!

I'm sure you are as excited as me to put 2020 behind you

and move into this brand new year!

2021 holds a lot of promise

and I can already feel it working for me :)

There's a pep in my step ...

a burst of creativity,

a joy to pick up paper, paint, pencils!

Maybe it's because the ideas are flowing that

I have all this creative energy, so

 I'm striking while the (hot glue) iron is hot!

I was the VERY lucky winner of a gift certificate from Mama Elephant

and chose this super duper cute Lucky Cat stamp set 

To create this card, I stamped the images and colored them 

with my copic markers and set them aside.

I made a quick watercolor spritz background to emulate fireworks

and then realized .....

I need 2 0 2 1 and don't have any number dies!

*cue my OH NO face!*

Lucky me again, I have the Brother Scan N Cut

(which I fully profess that I barely know how to use!)

and thought - this makes numbers, somehow!

It took maybe 5 minutes to figure out 

and even shorter to use thick glitter cardstock - total success!

Here's my completed card!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute card, Kelly. Happy New Year! xx

  2. You are so smart, Kelly - thinking to use the Scan and Cut to make your numbers. What a fun/sweet/adorable card!
