I cut the numerals 2010 from black cardstock using the George cartridge for the Cricut. I then proceeded to glue them onto a white strip of Georgia Pacific cardstock where I had stamped the New Year's Eve dachshund image from Cowtown stamps using Marvy Dye black. I overlapped the last zero over the dachshund, and then stamped a duplicate dachshund image onto another sheet of paper and proceeded to color the image with Copic markers. I cut this image out and lined it up on the strip so that the dachshund appears to be stepping from the zero. Neat, huh?
The sentiment "Hope your New Year is a real 'Weiner'!" is computer-generated. Patterned paper and a dog paw brad were also used to complete this card.
I combined two challenges with this card. This card fits NYE09B challenge, which was to create something that features or uses a noisemaker. It also fits the Stamp Simply #120 challenge, which is to use something new. I used my new Cricut for the first time to cut the numerals.
Thanks for looking, and wishing you all a very happy 2010!

This is a SUPER "Happy New Year's" card. And I LOVE the dog theme! TFS!
