Here's to New

Here we are at the end of 2011.  I'm going to avoid getting too deep and sentimental here because 1) I don't have time, 2) I'll change my mind and erase it anyway, and 3) we've got other business to take care of-- like cards and stuff :-)

I hope this year has been good to you.  I know that I have been blessed beyond what I will ever understand.  Granted, this year has brought my family challenges I never could have dreamed of, but I think, in the end, we'll only be better people for it.

I don't generally make grand resolutions.  Self-improvement is a on-going battle pursuit.  I try new things all the time.  They might be little, seemingly insignificant things, but it's fun!  The only things I'd like to do this year are get texting (yeah, i know...) and try contacts.  That's all.  Everything else is on a come-as-it-may basis.

Besides the year, here are some more new(ish) things...

I hope the end of this year finds you surrounded by the people you love most and may this next year be full of blessings!!

Happy December!

Happy December everyone :-)  It's time again for my monthly update where I recap how long it's been since I last posted.  Does life ever slow down?  Probably not.

I've got some cards to show you from the last few Thursday challenges at 365 Cards.  Let's start with the one for this week.

This is for Pam's "Recipe Challenge."  There's still plenty of time to play along, so make a card using the following "recipe" and link up your cards by Monday night at 11:59pm!

5x5 card
3 patterned Papers
6 rhinestones or pearls
1 stamp
1 sentiment
 Now, I stretched the rules just a little bit, as you can see.  I only used 1 stamp, but I stamped it three times. *wink wink*

Here are the cards from the past few challenges that I didn't get to blog about:
Day 269: Scraplifting With Hannah

Day 262: Feeling Grunge-y
Day 255: The 3 B's
