I can't recall being so ready to say goodbye to one year and hello to the new year. Before I say goodbye, I'd like to reflect on some wonderful moments in 2007. We were able to enjoy some wonderful get-aways to the beach and Mammoth as a family. We took our pre-teen to his first concert, KISS, what a rock and roll show! Kyle went back to the classroom successfully after being home-schooled for two years. We got Mabel, our first little dog this year, and what a joy she is in our lives. Kyle and I enjoyed many days of Disney fun and he and his dad enjoyed many days of fishing and camping. Hubby and I got a wonderful get-away to Pacific Grove this fall, thanks Mom. It was a good year in so many ways. That's what I'll remember about this year, not the challenges and difficult moments.
On the craft front it was a good year. I was able to take a full day of classes with two very inspiring artists, Terry Medaris and Tim Holtz. I started my blog and my etsy shop this year, both of which exceeded my expectations. I joined Craft Critique as a feature reporter. And, I dipped my toe into the submissions waters. I swapped ideas and cards with so many friends. I can't tell you how much my blogging stamping crafty friends mean to me. You inspire me, support me, and help me laugh. Thank you.
Bring on 2008!
This card was made with alcohol inks on transparency over glossy white cardstock stamped with stazon and the SU turtle image. The tag was made with the same alcohol inks on glossy cardstock. I colored up the paperclip and brad with the same alcohol inks.
