Happy New Year!

Hi all and happy 2012!! I hope you enjoyed your New Year's Eve last night. We stayed home. Other than having a rotten cold, I loved every minute of staying home and relaxing in my sweats....I decided it would be a good time to do some crafting, too, so I blew the dust off my stamp table and got to work. Here's what I made...



My awesome, sweet friend Dawn (love that girl) sent me a package of goodies last month that included some felt and this SWEET Jolinne stamp. The layout is MFT Sketch #52. Stickles were added to the string of hearts Jolinne is holding. The felt heart and cut-out sentiments are all up on foam tape.

Have a really great day! I'll be off this a.m. to the grocery store to stock up on some "healthy" foods.....gotta get a few pounds off (too much indulging in sweets this past month)...ugh!

Very sweet card. I wish that you would consider doing a coloring tutorial this year (with Copics) so that we, who could seriously use more skill in that area, could benefit. :0) We are still with my family in Washington State and I know I've gained weight being here and I was fat to begin with. Walking and less sugar and fats when we get home.

Oh how darling and perfectly colored Denise!! Love the added heart and your colors with the texture!! Sorry you have a cold. Our family has been quite sick with a URI/cold during the holidays and we too stayed home for New Year's Eve. Unfortunately I feel like I can't breathe right now so I have been up all night...oh well at least I could come visit you. LOL! Happy new Year Denise!!!

Chris
