Happy New Year! Cricut Cardz Challenge #99

Happy New Year friends! Wow, I loved all the tags that were posted for the last challenge on Mary's Cricut Cardz Challenge blog, they were awesome and gave me so many ideas for next Christmas. But now it is time for a new challenge:

#99: "Welcome 2012!" Make a "Happy New Year" card using any cartridge(s) and any colors you'd like.

Due: Jan 17th (Link your card here)
Here is my design team card. I have made Miss Hippo here with the big kissy lips before but it was time for a  comeback so here she is again ready for her New Year's Eve KISS - 5..4..3..2..1.. Happy New Year!! 

Isn't she FABULOUS?? I had so much fun making this card, I hope it inspires you to get your own New Years cards going and linked up here by Jan 17th for an entry into Mary's monthly drawing. I can't wait to see what you all have in store for us. And for some really awesome inspiration, check out all the design team projects!

Here are my card details:

Hippo & party hat are cut with Create A Critter, but I hid the facial features using my gypsy, and added the lips I cut from Indie Art, some googly eyes, and drawn on eyelashes. The pucker up was cut from ... hmmmmmm.... I am having a brain cramp and for the life of me can't remember which cartridge has this pucker up phrase... if anybody knows this please feel free to drop it into a comment.
N-E-Way... I cut the little flower with a punch and added bling to the center, then covered the petals and Miss Hippo's lips with stickles to give lots of shine and pop. I used my white Sakura gel pen to highlight with dots and dashes, more stickles and that pouffy feather thing on the hat. The sentiment and 2012 were hand written, and I used corner chompers to round and scallop all the corners.

I hope you have fun making your own card, be sure to link it up for the challenge! Happy New Year!
