Flying into the New Year!

Hey Everyone,
We're about to move into 2015! I can't believe how full last year was for me! I always like taking a moment to look through my journal around this time of the year. It helps me to remember where I've been and to focus on where I might want to go. Sometimes I don't realize how much I've changed or the things that I've accomplished.
I also want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for supporting me over the last year and for making this crazy life of mine possible ;) Big hugs to everyone!!!
Here's a couple of cards to celebrate. Flying into the night and emerging into a bright and hopeful day/year! I wish you a year full of positive experiences and whatever it is you need. Whether it's love, inspiration, friendship, healing... I hope that you find it :)
Using Candra and Lucine from my stamp collection
Using Raindrop Set and Luna from my stamp collection. If you look closely, Maidenhair Fern is in the bottom right too (stencil).
These two cards were made with Dylusions Ink Sprays and Golden Acrylic Paints. I also used Crackle Accents on the wings. I'll try to make a video tutorial showing how I do this soon.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you in the New Year ;)
