Happy New Year! And a NEW catalog!

Happy New Year! And a belated Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

It has been a crazy time at casa Tracey the last few weeks - with both good and bad things occurring at a ridiculous rate (great Christmas presents, food, family and an engagement for my nephew plus ruptured eardrum for me, hospital stay for pneumonia, and a tornado threat). It's like One Life to Live over here.

But, I am back with a new project for the New Year!

I had a love/hate relationship with the Mad Men show since sometimes it was over the top in its outrageousness. But, I loved the Don Draper outline they always showed.

So, when I saw this tuxedo man on the Cricut Suburbia cartridge, I knew I had my Mad Men look!

From the Suburbia cartridge, Tuxedo Man was cut at 3-3/4".
From the Photo Props cartridge, Happy New Year was cut at 2".
Card front in black is 5" x 5", white piece is 4-7/8" x 4-7/8" and the grey patterned paper is 4-1/2" x 4-1/2".

  4. The widespread official adoption of the Gregorian calendar and marking January 1 since the beginning of a new year is practically global today. Regional or local usage of different calendars continue, together with the ethnic and religious practices which follow them. In Latin America, various native civilizations continue the observation of traditions according to their particular calendars.
