Happy New Year!

I finally got a chance to play with some new Hero Arts stamps this morning and created this very quick and simple card.


I stamped the Envelope Pattern image with white ink on kraft paper for the card base. And the sentiment is from the Thank You For Being My Friend clear stamp...LOVE this set, great sentiments and love the typewriter font. 

I'm really excited to start this Monthly Photo Project I came across on Rebecca Cooper's blog.  Since all my photos have become digital, I've really struggled with a way organize my photos in such a way that my family can enjoy them.  I rarely print any photos...they are all just sitting on my computer or on DVD's.  This project seems very manageable and that really appeals to me.  I think I can handle one page a month...I may even spread it out to a two-page spread per month.  And then at the end of the year I'll print all of them in a photo book.  It really makes me happy to think of having a shelf lined with these books in my living room to pull out at any time.

Do you have any New Years resolutions that you are excited about?  I'd love to hear.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hi Kelly!

This card is gorgeous! That striped pattern is pretty with this white on the kraft! Love your choice of colors, wouldn't have thought of mint and yellow, but it works perfectly, like it a lot!

Hugs, Wendy
