Happy 2012! Wishing you a Happy, healthy, joyful, prosperous, blessed New Year! I hope that you started the New Year better than I did! Chad and I had a lovely time at the New Years Party that we went to and stayed quite late. It was fun to hang out with friends with no kids around! Much quieter and more easier conversation! By the end I started to feel bad and spent the rest of the night sick with the stomach flu! I don't think I've ever had such a bad stomach flu with how bad the stomach cramps were! Thankfully my parents kept the kids until almost bedtime New Years day so I spent the day on the couch watching tv, relaxing and dozing on and off. Chad was so very good to me and took good care of me! I am feeling much better but not yet 100%.
Today I have a fun card to share that I made for my MIL to give to my niece who just turned 12! When I got this stamp I knew I wanted to make her a card with it!
I love this stamp You Rock by Hero Arts! Perfect for tween or teenage girls! :> I colored her with my prisma and derwent pencils. Stamped the background with Life of the Party dots by HA in frost white pigment ink. Used some paper from Lime Twist by My Mind's Eye! I love starting the new year with a fun cute card!
With it being the new year I thought I would share some of my crafty goals with you:
-That my crafting never comes before being a mom and the best mom I can be
-Be a better blog friend and better commenter. Life has been busy lately but I miss ya!
-Not just pin things to make on Pintrest actually make them! I've actually been pretty good at this so far!
-try playing with challenges more! Not just check them out actually play!
-Send out birthday cards especially!!! And other things in life, celebrate those around you!
-Be a better poster. I am always working on something and often have cards waiting to be posted! I need to post more!
There you go! :> Do you have any crafty goals for 2012? I would love to hear them! I better be off I can feel that I need to go and relax a bit! :> Next time I post wait till you see the wreath I working on!
