Vacations are so relaxing and so nice when you are on vacation (or at work thinking about vacation), but it always feels so good to be back with your own stuff. You know what I mean? Here's a card I made today. I'm trying to get back into the crafty swing of things.


Stamps are TAC; paper is Chatterbox.

Meanwhile, please have patience while I catch up with all my SCS2 sisters' blogs. It may take me a couple of days.

Do any of you have resolutions for 2008? I have a few. There are a lot of the same - eat healthier - type of resolutions. But I also want to send all of my family and friends handmade (by me) birthday cards. You mean I don’t already do this? haha. No. I have a very long list of family/friends and it always looked too intimidating to conquer, but was always in the back of my mind. Since I don’t buy cards because I make them myself, this is actually a goal that I have been wanting to set for myself since I started seriously crafting about 5 years ago and I’m finally diving in and trying it out. Yesterday I started trying to gather everyone’s birth dates on my calendar so that I can keep track and spend time making a card, made especially for them when their birthday comes around. EEK!! I'm not entirely sure what I'm getting myself into, but I'll see how it works out. All you lovely ladies knows how much love goes into making a card, and that it can take time, which is why I haven't tried to set this goal for myself until now.

So glad to see your back! I hope your vaca was fun a restful! Your card is beautiful! Love how you have the stamped image seperated!
My only resolution is to organize my time better. My days are too fractured and I don't accomplish much!
Good luck on sending your friends and family cards! That sounds like a great goal!

Gorgeous card. I love the way you have it laid out: so original & the sparkliness. And you're not alone. I have a very hard time keeping up with sending out cards. Great idea for a resolution! :0) Mel

I am right there with you on wanting to send cards to everyone this year. I agree it is not a small goal, but you will surely feel great about accomplishing something that will make so many others smile :)

Welcome back! I love your elegant looking card! It's very pretty!

I have a similar goal to send family and friends cards once a month. It is a daunting task but I think it's achievable and they always love receiving the cards because it's personal!!
