Buh-bye 2009 and welcome 2010

Happy New Year! I hope that the last few days of the new year have been going great for you and I wish you all nothing but the best for the rest of the year!

The first days for me started out great until my roommate found out this morning that her grandpa passed away last night. It’s been a rough day for her; please keep her in your thoughts.

I’m hopeful that the next year will bring great changes. A lot happened in 2009 and as I take a moment to reflect back on some moments, I’m glad that they are in the past.

The card I’m showing you today is based on the fact that I’m excited for this year! I love a good martini and so this image is perfect! I decided to use the Bottoms Up sentiment from Ginger Muffin top to make it more suitable to a birthday card if I decide to use it for that occasion instead.

The sketch I used to complete this card is Mercy’s Sketch #54 as seen below:
