A Mad Hatter "Happy New Year" Card

Who enjoys parties more than the Mad Hatter?  So, a New Year celebration wouldn't be complete without him --- especially Johnny Depp style!!  Woo hoo!  Mo Manning had the riotous JD characterization of MH in mind when she created this fun image. 

I couldn't resist coloring MH in bright colors he loves so much --- with Copics, of course.  Then I had the challenge of finding paper in my stash to go along with the image.  Well, this Provo Craft Slab XI had just the right designs.  The swirling colors represent what I imagine the journey down the rabbit hole to look like: a bit psychedelic, eh?  There is nothing in my eggnog --- just a vivid (and a wee bit crazy) imagination!

Meet the Mad Hatter himself!

I'm really lousy at writing my own sentiments, but this was easy given the image and the occasion.  The font is Gigi in The Print Shop Pro Publisher.

Thanks for stopping by during 2010 and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2011.  Happy New Year!
