Happy New Year

After spending a fabulous Christmas in Utah with Kathy and SIL I arrived home 50 lbs. heavier then I left! Kathy was the perfect enabler she obliged me by taking me to every scrapbook/hobby store you could think of. I found all sorts of things I couldn't live without. I struggled to get the box from the baggage area to the pickup zone. Does anyone feel sorry for me? I know my brother didn't when I made him unload it from the car:) . When he asked me what was in the box and I told him, his eyes just rolled!

I also gained about 10 physical pounds thanks to Kathy's baking skills and her lemon pistachio cookies. I guess my resolution for the New Year will be to go on a diet.

While waiting for them to wakeup one morning, I decided to create a Birthday card for sis using some of her stash. Determined to make it bolder and brighter then my normal dull colors. I came up with this color scheme but could not quite figure out how to finish it off until she joined in and found this perfect ribbon in her stash.

Welcome to a NEW year!
