Happy, Happy New Year!


                   Welcome 2010!

         I don't know about you but I'm glad the new year is here! As a rule I don't make new years resolutions..... however this year I thought I would give it a try! So here it goes!
  • I resolve to keep my studio clean.
  • I resolve not to spend so much $ on stampin!
  • I resolve to eat less chocolate, pizza & junk !
  • I resolve to clean house before stampin!
   Thank goodness new years resolutions are never kept! Ok onto my card! I had the worst time trying to make a card today..... very frustrating! I had to put the paper down and back out of my studio very slowly! So I cleaned house, ate a little chocolate and had a cup a joe before I went back in to try again! Still not real happy, but it will do! My card is for the Color Dare Challenge... colors to be used are bashful blue, cameo coral and soft suede. My card base is soft suede layered with bashful blue. I used embossing folders to create the little squares. My sentiment is from the new set called "With all my Heart".
    I want to wish everyone a wonderful new year! May the good Lord bless your socks right off!

Hugs xxx

Good thing you kept coming back, this baby turned out spectacular! I'm lovin' the various textures, & layers.

Oh my gosh Patti, those don't sound like fun resolutions at all!!!!!!!! :-)
Perhaps keeping the studio clean but really ~ spending LESS on stamping??? oh and not alot of chocolate??? And well, dust can keep, but stamping cannot! haha I have to admit, they are the same resolutions I would make. I sure hope you can keep them, I don't know that I would be able to! :-)

On a serious note, I really love this card, especially the colours. I'll have to click the link of that challenge. Thanks for sharing!!

Wow, this is great! It was worth the wait.....I missed you this morning. Busy day today, but plan to stamp tomorrow. I'm liking the EF squares, a great look and easy too.

Oh, Patti,

You are my inspiration as always. I enjoy reading your post. Short and clear and warm. As you might aware, I should use my translator (Korean to English, English to Korean) in my brain whenever I write my thoughts and ideas that I want to share or even read someone's long~ posting, it slows me down.

By the way, you made me so relieved this morning. I've been struggling for organizing my crafting room too. Like Linda said I also have to say the same I wish you the BEST on keeping those resolutions! Please let me know how it goes.

Thanks for sharing your ideas and beautiful cards. Happy New Year!
