Serendipity #26 - Chalk and CASology #76 - Party

Happy Friday! Having this time off from school, I keep losing track of what day it is, maybe it is a getting old thing.  I have 2 cards to share today, the first one is for the current challenge over at CASology, it has been forever since I have had the time to play along and with this week's cue card "Party" it was not hard to come up with an idea.  

My second card is also for the current challenge at Serendipity and their theme is "Chalk".  I know this technique has been around for some time but I never gave it a try. Happy to say that I love the look and will be making more cards like this one. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards...Happy New Year!

  1. Beautiful job with those champagne flutes, the countdown, and all those bubbles, Kim!! That's a card that has universal appeal in every language in the world!! And your first effort at the chalkboard technique is A+++ perfect! I love the unique circular design you used!! Happy New Year Hugs! Darnell

  2. Fun party those bubbles and the countdown!
    The Santa image came out wonderful in chalk, very cute card. Thanks for joining us in the Serendipity challenges...hope to see more wonderful creations in 2014. Happy New Year, Kim!

  3. Love both cards - especially the party card - cool idea with the count down! I wish you a great New Year - keep crafting - I love visiting your blog!
    Hugs, Cornelia

  4. These are both really fabulous. Brilliant idea to cut those champagne flutes out of silver and to have a count down below. So festive and a perfect way to say happy new year. And, your chalkboard Santa is just perfect. Using the oval makes it look even more retro and old fashioned, and the bling and snowflakes are perfectly placed. So glad you are enjoying your time off.

  5. Such fun cards. I really like the countdown and glasses on your first one.

  6. Oh my goodness, Kim--you are one talented lady! Your champagne card is so creative & says PARTY perfectly! Your Santa card is one of the best examples of the chalkboard technique I've seen. I may end up giving it a try after-all. Thanks for always inspiring me!

  7. Both so fun and I love the silver glasses Kim! Thank you for joining us at CASology!
