Happy New Year both Old and New Friends . . . .

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

I have some wonderful friends that I've met through the years and hold still and dear to my heart along with new friends that I have made along the way through crafting. When Create with TLC had the sentiment the other day as its "freebie", I just knew that I would do a first and make "Happy New Year Cards". I made 4 all at the same time and I think they turned out great and will be mailed in the morning.

  • sentiment, "A New Year with Old Friends" was the "freebie" the other day at Create with TLC. If something looks a tad familiar, its the card I'm sharing with you today as I'm fortunate enuf to be on Create with TLC Design Team!
  • friends on the front of my card are also a Create with TLC digital design called Friend Like You Digi Image and Word Set which reminds me of my one friend - we tease one another about us getting old with helping each other and sharing a room at a nursing home!
  • image was colored with Prisma and Spectrum Noir markers accented with gel pens and Prisma Colored pencils
  • card was cut 8.5 x 5.5 inches, creased with Martha Stewart Score Board using Recollections Card Stock
  • background is DCWV Linen Collection and cut 4 x 5.25 inches
  • 5mm flat-back acrylic pearls and Bronze-tone pocket watch charm are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies

Much love, hugs, and friendship


  1. What an absolutely brilliant New Year card for long term friends Lynne (note I say long term rather than old because I feel sure that you and your friends are a long way from needing to physically support each other as in your image). I love your sentiment ....and altogether this is a lovely card. Good luck in our extended challenge. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
