Happy New Year, Friends!
When I saw this balloon wiener dog stamp by Avery Elle, I had to have it. I have several (not enough, of course) wiener dog stamps, but I didn't have ANY balloon wiener dog stamps. This one is so cute! It's perfect for birthday, New Year's or any other party cards. I combined it with this party hat paper for the perfect party combination!
I pray 2015 will be your best year, yet!
I pray 2015 brings me a good surgeon to fix my back so I can stamp and make more cards, which would make it my best year yet!! :)

The first challenge I am entering this card in is NBUS Challenge #3 Anything Goes. What does "NBUS" stand for? It's awesome- "Never Before Used Schtuff." (I spelled it right- schtuff!) I don't know if it's good or bad, but I can enter this challenge for a very long time. It is part of my resolution to use the things I have and not just get more new stuff, though, so it's perfect. That's why you may have noticed I used LOTS of my Stampin' Up supplies from last year on this card. Even though I loved it, this stamp and paper was NBUS. Now it's "ABUS- already used schtuff."
I am also entering my card in the Repeat Impressions DCC1231 "Ring In The New Year" Challenge. Repeat Impressions is a brand of rubber stamps designed and made here in the United States. They have tons of cute designs. As I said in my post, my stamp is from Avery Elle, but I still encourage you to check out their stamps!
Finally, I am entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp, "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge. I'd love to meet Simon the dog someday! Let's face it, a dog that says to stamp is a great dog!
