Celebrate a New Year ........ a New You! :)






It's almost 2011!  Can you believe it?!  So much of this last part of a year has literally passed me by in a daze and I'm hopeful that this New Year will bring restored health and prosperity.   As I look back on the past year, I realized that I was in constant motion - being a mom of 4 can surely accomplish that!   I'm not one who makes new year resolutions ~ but I do set "goals" for myself ... this year right at the top:  reclaim my fitness regimen and continue my weight loss journey.    Which is why I LOVED this digi by Fresh Brewed Designs the second I laid eyes on it - Skinny Latte!  It's perfect!  My fave coffee  at that oh-so-famous-coffee-place isn't exactly figure friendly if you have too many *wink!* so the lighter version is just right! 

This week at Fresh Brewed Challenge Blog, the challenge is celebrating the New Year!  For my card, I paired the Skinny Latte digi with some festive dsp from S.E.I., colored it with my prismas and used my scallop die to make my favorite embellie - Ric-Rac!!   I hope you get the chance to play along this week - stop in here and share your new year celebration card!

And just for laughs, this is me driving to yet another one of my kid's schools and/or activities - Buddy, our 1 year old Jack Russell, often rides along.  While I was drivin,  my dd16 apparently thought it would be cute to let him *share* - NOT!!   That is liquid gold in that cup, rofl (not to mention about the price of gold, too!) 


Blessing to you and I hope your New Year is a safe, happy and blessed one!

  11. What a fun image, Kelly, and such gorgeous warm colors and papers you used. Praying you do well with your goals for the new year, sweetie, and that God will bless you and your family with all that is needed and much more! Such a fun picture of Buddy, though I'm sure sharing your "nectar" with the dog must have been a bit frustrating -- LOL! Hugs, Deedee
