2012 First!!

I can't believe this is the first crafty thing I've done in 2012.  And one of my resolutions was to make at least one thing a week.  But a new job has been killing me lately and I just haven't been up to playing with my Cricut.  And I got some new things for Christmas, too!! =(

My niece did a really good job this semester by bringing home all good grades.  So, I decided to make her a little treat.  I got this idea from Alex over at You Had Me At Craft.  Except I made this little beaut with an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of black card stock.  It's real simple, but real cute.  It was looking a little bit blah, but I added some Stickles to it and dressed it up a bit.  I know it's not much but I was so happy to be making something with my hands (finally!), so I'm happy with how it came out.
