Year In Review - Some of my favorite cards from 2011

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.

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's because we are preparing to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus 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.
