Inspired By #155 - Goodbye, 2020!


We're saying goodbye to 2020 at Inspired By #155!  
I can't help wonder if we'll all give 
a great sigh of relief?  No matter what got you through, I wish you all 
a healthy, blessed, and happy New Year!

Here's an old flop-eared friend of mine... let's just say he 
gets 'carried away' on occasion!

I know, and trust, that we'll be tasked with staying safely inside for a while longer.
I consider myself so lucky to have this fun card challenge, and hobby,  to keep me happily crafting through my days.  

Thanks to all of you who have spent some time with me in my little blog-space this year!  Thanks even more if you shared your inspired creations with us at Inspired By - we do hope you'll play along with IB155 - we'll give you 2 weeks to create - so play as often as you'd like!  

Love and hugs... bless you, and happy New Year!
=]  Michele

I LOVE this card, Michele, and there are those wonderful streamers!!! I love the colors, the clock with wings, the sentiment, the silver thread... and YOU. It was been a joy to spend time in your blog space and you in mine. Much love. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
In the words of Ray Davies of The Kinks -
Here's wishing you the bluest sky
And hoping something better comes tomorrow
Hoping all the verses rhyme
And the very best of choruses, too
Follow all the doubt and sadness
I know that better things are on the way

So good to see your flop-eared pal saying good-bye to this challenging year. Crafting is what kept me going, too. Also found out a lot about bunches of subjects I may or may not have wanted to know. But good friends and happy cards like this one made it all bearable.

Great ingenuity as usual Michele. love the sentiment, those soft colours and the rather mad looking hare. I assume it is a hare but don't really know anyway it works really well xx

Such a wonderful take on the IB photo to end the year, Michele! Love everything about this double-balloon card - the soft color, the "carried away" bunny, the perfect sentiment, and the silver twisted crepe. Happy New Year to you too!
