Happy New Year!

What will this new year hold for you? We have had a lot of change in our family and I can't wait to see what God has in store for us. Life really is good! I have also seen some fun top 10 posts around the blogs, so perhaps I will have that for you today as well.

It's a good life!

Courage. Well as we start a new year, I am reflecting on a lot right now. Hopefully I will have some new goals to share here. Isn't it nice to share somewehre and put things in writing. It is usually so more likely to happen when it is in writing.
Isn't this card great. It does take courage to dream and set goals. It also takes a lot to share with others so that you are accountable and even a little vulnerable. I would love to hear your goals if you are willing to share. Hope you have a great new year!

It's a good life!

You are fabulous!

If there ever was a season where women need to hear this message it is now LOL!
As I was up late finishing all of our wrapping, I decided that women are fabulous! Really we all knew this already, but there it is anyway LOL! Hope you are all taking sometime to enjoy the season with loved ones. This beauty has stamps from Ippity. This is a fun company and I can't wait to get some more rubber to play with. Love the bright colors here. The flowers are from Sassafrass. The season has me into finding ways to make stinking cute quick cards LOL! Have a great one.

Hello Sunshine

Where did these days go? It was so cold here in IL today I don't know what to do with myself LOL!
I am actually getting to stamp later tonight, so I am going to keep this cutie short and sweet. This is melon berry ribbon and vintage cream paper. I distressed it with the chi tea duo. The main image is from Cosmo Cricket. How sweet is that? All I had to do was cut her out, layer it on melon berry and it was ready to go.

PS-have you been watching the new PTI goodness? I am not able to order this month, but my oh my is my list ever growing. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

It's a good life!

Feeling Fowl?

Well we are done Christmas shopping, so that is a huge blessing, but I am getting sick.
Isn't this little guy just perfect for me? LOVE him!!!! I made this for a color challenge a while ago, but never posted this cutie. I need to bust those copics out more often.

It's a good life!

Christmas Notes

Is it really December 7th? Have I really not uploaded since November 25th? What a slacker!!! Well, we have been super busy just like everyone else right now. I am loving my new job. It is a lot to learn, but it is really challenging and math based, so I adore that. Why did I not know about this before? We have also been busy decorating and making our Christmas cards, wrapping and shipping to all of Randy's family who live far away. Hopefully I will be done with all of that tomorrow.

Here is one of my favorite little cuties this season. I am having the hardest time deciding who is going to get this beauty.
Okay, can that little Basic Grey cutie get any cutier? I am in LOVE with these whollies and would love to have about 25 more of these little birds. Also, this dsp is basic grey the jovial line and it is addictive as well. The sentiment is a cutie from Dawn's Signature Christmas. Can I just be Dawn? Okay I really love my life, so can I just have her handwriting LOL!

I am also writing to get some accountability here. I have 8 more birthday calendards to go. I know crazy!!! There needs to be a major effort here soon to get these bad boys done and I mean quick. I also have regular calendars to do as well. Hopefully those will just be a matter of putting them together. Does anyone have a good idea how to bind those cuties? I am thinking I need a trip up to Archivers for a bind it all.

It's a good life!
