Happy New Year!

Oh what a year... I can't believe I've had a blog for almost a year...that's crazy talk!  I hope that all of you found a special way to ring in the new year!  I was at a lovely wedding and had a great time the last few days with my family!  We had a great time playing cards and having a lot of laughs.  I did miss my stamps and crafts a little though!  But I figure it was time to start a New Years resolution-- I have a few personal ones but I figured I better stick with a crafting  one too!  I have resolved to create 100 cards for OWH and by create I mean, create, stamp with information, stuff properly in envelopes and mail to my shipper all before I can spend any more money on craft items!  Holy wow... I hope I can do this!  But OWH is way more important to get cards to than new stamps to me :)  Wish me luck! 

So what better way to stick to my goal than to do a couple of challenges.  I found the fabulous sketch at OWH Sketch Challenge #102 and also there is a facebook challenge for Unity.  I will be linking up my card on their facebook page if I can figure out how :)  The stamp I am using is from Unity and their Itty Bitty Collection-- you can find it here.

that is a wonderful goal - I always do Oldie Moldie Mondays - on Monday my card or cards has to be made from older paper - play along - I got 5 cards made using the same paper this week. Helps. I love Unity stamps also.
