Happy New Year!  I hope that everyone had a fun and safe holiday.  I spent the evening at home with my family and cuddling with my sick kids.  It's been a rough fall and winter for sickness in my home.  Here's wishing for a healthy new year.

New Year's Eve also celebrated something special.  My in-law's 50th wedding anniversary.  What a great achievement!  Here is the gift that I made for them.

I imported the split letter G svg file into Cricut's design space and added the names and date.  Everything was cut on black vinyl and applied to a piece of vellum.  I didn't have it all done yesterday so I hope that they like it when I give it to them today.  Happy Anniversary!

What could be in this pretty box?

A surprise card to celebrate their 50th.

I purchased the svg file from  I love this card!  The top is a battery operated tea light.  The cake is easy to put together and you can buy the card box separate.  The sides open up when you lift the lid.  I didn't have any gold paper laying around so I used gold vinyl.  The best part of using vinyl is that it's already adhesive.  No extra glued fingers.

A good friend also had a celebration on this day.  Her 40th birthday.  Happy Birthday Becky!

And Happy New Year's everyone.
