Happy New Year! I did promise I’d be back in 2021 with cards – so I’m here on the 1st with a fun one – in Pantone’s color of the year, yellow!

I’m starting off 2021 with a nap, hoping it trains the rest of the year to give us time for that! Let’s begin with some fun painting, and a scary trick to create a shadow across a bunch fo colors. Blog post with more info and pinnable images: https://bit.ly/2LHuXKP

Colorado Craft Company came out with some new stamps a few weeks ago, designs by Anita Jeram – and I sneak-peeked this Puppy’s Quilt card. Today you get to see how I painted it! And lemme tell you, painting it this way kept me from flipping out trying to color all the little bits of the designs on the quilt!


Isn’t that sentiment perfect? Vienna hereby gives you permission to go take a nap today – it’s the first day of the new year, so start it off right with a nice nap in the sunshine!
