Have a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe that today is the last day of 2011.  In this household, the last year was one of many moves and changes, but we are happy to say we are finally settling in nicely.  We are looking forward to enjoying what life brings us in 2012. (Hopefully a lot less house projects)

We've had lots and lots of family in town, so I have been MIA from crafting and blogging, but look forward to getting back on track in 2012. Wouldn't trade the memories with family for the world.

Since I am a bit under the weather I challenged myself to make a card in 5 minutes or less. Anyone who knows me knows this is a CHALLENGE! We were very blessed this Christmas, so I have many Thank You notes to create, and I decided simple and fast is the way to go.

Another creation with supplies from my scrap pile! Since I had a role of this glittery cord, I thought that would be a great touch to the top. After fussing with a pretty bow, I noticed not so pretty for picture. (note to self check before picture taking)....we will blame it on the clogged head.

The sentiment is from Stampin' UP! Thank You Kindly stamp set.

I am going to play along with with Jules Crafty Snippet Challenge, Fairy Tale Challenge Blog: Something Easy, Simon Says: Anything Goes, and The Play Date Cafe!
Well, I am going to keep this short. Just wanted to squeeze one more card/post before the year ended.
Happy New Year Everyone!
~Tammy~

Hi Tammy

Sorry to read you are a bit under the weather! I hope you feel a little better soon.

Your little thank you card is gorgeous. Lovely use of your snippets.

Thank you for sharing in the snippet playground this week. As you will have noticed from my blog the playground keys have been transfered over to Di .. .. she is in charge now!

Thank you for all the lovely creations you entered into the challenge whilst I was the keeper of the keys.

Love Jules xx
