I hope you got a chance to look at my first post from today feature the BRAND NEW Card Kit and COPIC Club from A Walk Down Memory Lane! I am super excited about it and hope you'll join me in oooohing and ahhhing over these kits!
Anyway, I wanted to do another New Year's post because I've gotten some beautiful emails today from friends and family wishing me a Happy 2009 and also, looking back on my accomplishments in 2008. It's funny, because I was just saying that normally, New Year's is kind of well, not a huge deal to me. Well, BOY was I wrong when I started reading the emails and comments I've gotten, and most of them came from you guys, my stamping friends.
Last night, on SCS, I participated in a challenge hosted by my good friend. You know who you are :) The challenge was to make a card for a friend. Easy peasy...until I realized how special this card needed to be. I hope she likes it. I used her fave color combo...hee hee. I decided to try Amy R's sketch from last week. This was very intriguing to me with the circles. Anyway, this is my FIRST card of 2009 and I'm really happy with how it came out. I used the Cup of Stuff stamp set from The Greeting Farm. (formerly Pink Poison) Check out the NEW website and gallery...Marie has worked SO hard to revamp it all and it's SPLENDID indeed! (sentiment is from PTI)
On that note, I want to share with you one of my New Year's resolutions. After all, it's a LOT harder to slack when I have ALL you guys to keep me accountable, right? Heh heh...be gentle.
My New Year's Resolution is to send more RAK's. I make SOOOO many cards and get to share this amazing hobby with so many of you, and I find myself "hoarding" cards LOL. Now we ALL know there are some we just CANNOT part with, but still...
Anyway, I started this morning, and I have 60 cards that I made in 2008 that will be donated to Cards for A Cause through SplitCoast Stampers. I encourage ALL of you to check out this thread and feel good about something that can truly make a stranger's day.
For the rest of you, If I don't have your address, please let me know. I am working on a Birthday calendar too. The reason i got INTO stamping, even before I was so blessed to be asked to join Design Teams, etc. was because it was something I wanted to share with the world! I always knew that I had found my "calling" so to speak. Sure, there is blogging, and I am really loving having met SO many of you through my little corner here in cyberspace. Still, there is something about sending a handmade card that well...I'd like to get better at remembering to do! And now it's OUT there...there's no turning back! LOL!
HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FRIENDS!!!
