Nesties in the house for the New Year!

Hope everyone had a delightfully, wonderful New Year's Celebration. We had a small party here last night. We do an annual party. This year we had about 22 people come. Everyone loved the food! And my handmade stuff went faster than Paul's CFA strips! I have this one pinwheel dish I make that is so yummy! It has shredded chicken, cream cheese, cilantro-my ubber favorite herb, and jalapenos wrapped up in crescent rolls. They are so light, and the spice is just the right touch. It's so yummy! I only had a few because they ate them up! I even made a double batch, thinking I'd have some today! LOL! Always nice to bring in the New Year with special friends.

I was given some moolah for Christmas from my ILS. I know, I'm a lucky gal! People seem to have a love/hate relationship with their ILS, but I've been blessed! Paul's parents are the best! Even better, he has two sets of parents, and both sides truly spoil us! I have been waiting forever it seems to get some nesties, so when they sent money, that's what I ordered! I had a good time picking them. I don't have any rectangle scallop punches, so I grabbed those two scalloped sets first. I also grabbed the scallop oval and circle figuring I could replace the two punches I have. I was surprised at how big the scallop circle was in the kit. I didn't get the non-scalloped sets yet, thinking I can use supplies I have for that for now to fill in the centers. I'm thinking I'm gonna want them. Good thing I have a birthday in Jan, huh?! LOL! In the top left corner of the photos is a Rachel Anne Miller stamp. This is my first stamp of her's.

I also grabbed some new stickles! My, the new glitz ones are very blingy! I can't wait to use these things. I have company who are in my bonus room so right now, I can't use them. All my goodies are upstairs waiting to be used! Crossing fingers maybe I can play tomorrow!

I made the card the other day using the cute TAC angel set. I used some Basic Grey paper, I think this is sultry 6x6 pack. SU's wild was. card stock. Gems from Michaels, and stickles on the wings. I colored with my Lyra water color crayons. I found the Basic Grey paper at Michaels, during their 40% off all paper packs the weekend after Thanksgiving! Such pretty papers!
