Year In Review - Some of my favorite cards from 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This is going to be a year of goals and not resolutions for me.  The word goal sounds more positive to me and something I can work towards and be proud of...not like a promise (resolution) that I end up breaking.
My Goals For 2012
1. Be happy with what I have - Frugal is in da house.
2. Work on becoming more healthy and creating healthy habits - Healthy.
3. Last...but certainly not least...I will serve God.
THAT'S IT!  Nothing overwhelming and definitely attainable.

My prayer for 2012 is for health & happiness.  Most importantly, I pray for my mom and dad.  Their health has been declining and I want them to feel better and get better and stay with me for a long time.

On to my year in review - here are some of my favorite cards from 2011












I hope you enjoyed my creations from 2011
 and I wish you a happy, healthy, creative 2012

Happy New Year Cards

Hi Everyone....
Are you surviving the holidays?  I am by the skin of my teeth LOL.  Well I've started having a little anxiety....not sure why...but, I've been busy in my room trying to keep my mind off of it and here are a couple of little cards and envelopes I made.  If you have a good remedy for an anxiety buster...I'd love to  hear it.  Look for my Year In Review post coming up in a few days.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

CardzTV Challenge #2 "Crafty Christmas"

Merry Christmas Everyone....
This is the best time of year for me.  All the joy and love in the air.  I love all the colors, songs, food and it just seems like everyone is in an especially good mood.  I know why....it's because we are preparing to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ....now there's a reason to be in a good mood.
Well, today is Mary's CardzTV Challenge #2 and it's a Crafty Christmas.  All of my design team sisters have just made the most wonderful projects.  They are an awesomely, talented, creative group of ladies that I have just grown to care about so much.  I'd like to share my project with you using the "Home For Christmas" stamp set and also let you know that Mary is offering 2 sets of stamps (Encouraging Thoughts & Make A Wish) to the winner of this challenge.  Her stamps are just awesome....stamp once and PERFECTO.  Ok...enough of my chatter LOL.  Hope you enjoy my card.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone....
I want to wish all of you a blessed Thanksgiving.  I love this crafty community and I'm thankful for all of my wonderul friends.
Tomorrow we will be having my oldest son Scott and his wife over and my youngest son Michael.  We ran to the store tonight because I didn't think I had enough dessert and we thought we'd better buy a bigger turkey.  Better to have too much than not enough.  We're having turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, corn casserole, noodles, crescent rolls, cranberry sauce and for dessert we're having a pumpkin roll and cherry delight. 
Maybe I can talk my boys into putting up my tree ;o)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO MY WONDERFUL FRIENDS AND FAMILY
p.s. thank you to the person that posted this cute pic on FB...it's adorable :)

Last Minute Halloween Card

Hi Everyone...
I can finally sit at my desk chair because my back is feeling better...so here is a little Halloween card I made.  It would be perfect for a Cricutless challenge.  I used a dollar bin stamp from Michaels and did some heat embossing.  I think my little mummy turned out pretty cute.  I hope you like it. Happy Halloween.

Fall/Halloween Blog Hop

Hi Everyone...
I love this time of year.  The hayrides, caramel apples, cinnamon/apple scents in the air, the beautiful fall leaves.  It's my favorite.  Here is a little card I made using Simply Charmed.  I love this scarecrow.  He's so friendly...I don't think he'd scare anything away.  If you just came from visiting Lisa, then you're in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, visit Nicolette for a complete blog hop line up.  Happy Fall Y'all.
