Almost 2009...

Well, it is New Year's Eve... where will you be partying? I will be hangin' at the house, away from all of the crazy drunk people... yep, I'm pretty smart. Seriously, I have really become a bit of a hermit as of late. I don't know what it is, but I would rather stay home than go out... I am an old lady. Ok, maybe not OLD old, but you know what I'm sayin'.

On to today's bit of goodness. This is one of my DT projects from a few months ago, that I finally get to share with you. These are my
C-ya'round Coaster Cards. Pretty nifty play on words, right? :)

The purple & green one is made with TAC's retired Mulberry Meadow SWIC & cardstock, and the pink & green one is made with the Pop Rockz SWIC & DCWV Apple Green #2 cardstock. I also used Circle Sampler (inside), a retired alphabet set, Violette & Bordeaux Palette Ink, Winchester Hardware, Toodle Loo Hardware, Pop Dots, Yes! Glue, & foam tape

A couple of years ago, I had received a coaster card from Lori Betterly (my upline's upline) and I just loved the idea! Simply by using the Coluzzle Nested Circle to cut out the inner 'lining' of the card from a folded piece of cardstock, it creates the hinged part of the card.

We had to create something 'in the round' so-to-speak, and I had (have) a huge stack of round coasters collecting dust on my shelf :) Perfect. There isn't a lot of stamping on this one, but there is a lot of dimension and play, and I really like how it turned out. I can see this card being used for someone that is moving away, or that is not seen very often, or a 'just a note' kind of thing.

What do you think?
