1st Birthday cards of the year

Life always throws you curve balls-its up to you to catch and deal with them! I've been dealing with the news that one of our pups (Gwen) has cancer and I've spent a lot of time at vet visits and just spending time with her-hence why I'm just now updating the blog.

On happier news I have created a couple of birthday cards this year so far. I'm also working on my third which is a new style to me of a stair step card-I'll have a separate post for this soon :)

Co-workers birthday card-making cards for guys is always a challenge for me. This one got my hubby's approval for a man card :)

I started a birthday card swap in one of my facebook groups and this is the first card I made for it:

Happy Scrapping :)

Hello 2011

Wow how fast time flies, I can't believe its already 2011, let alone that I haven't posted since the summer!

I'll start my new years blog with a list of goals that I have set for myself (crafty and non crafty)

*Scrapbook for myself at least once a week

*Finish my wedding scrapbooks and puppy book.

*Try a new technique at least once a month (or one that I haven't tried before)

*Try to keep my room tidy--not holding my breath on this one!!

*cook more meals from scratch

*Grow a bigger garden and start canning my foods for the winter months

*Walk my dogs more

*Participate in more 5K races/events

*Reach and maintain my goal weight

*Have fun with family and friends :)
