Farewell, 2010. You are a great friend, and I can't believe you're leaving us already. You weren't long enough, but this card sure is.
Yes, it's a long card with LOTS of white space. But I wanted to see how this fabulous sentiment and little dragonfly would look huddled in one corner of a long card. The long ascender for the d creates a strong vertical border to the sentiment, and I wondered how it would look in a lot of horizontal white space.
I like it. It's bold and graphic and courageously empty. But I wish those adorable Hero Arts brown gemstones came one size smaller. That one is just a bit too big for that poor little dragonfly. Maybe he's a rapper dragonfly with a taste for big bling. Or Lady Gaga.
May your New Year's Eve celebrations be blingy and festive. Or, you could just celebrate like we do: go out on the 30th and eat Bang Bang Shrimp in relative peace, then on the 31st, stay home, watch a movie, go to bed at 10:00, wake up on New Year's morning, and say, "Happy New Year!" You don't have to worry so much about drunks on the road that way.
Except that last night we went home behind a drunk driving 15 miles below the speed limit who crossed the center line occasionally. At least he was in front of us where we could keep an eye on him.
Please be safe.
Oh, and have a happy New Year!
