{ Hello 2010 }

Here we are...the start of a New Year. Are there some of you out there that are resolution makers? I have never been one of those people...can never really stick with it for long...or just plain forget about it after I make it. I will admit though, that this year there are a few things I would REALLY like to stick to.

1. Lose weight...I know, I know...but this year I will be turning the big 40 and's something I MUST do.

2. Get all my Christmas Card Challenges done on time....meaning done when I post the challenge and not get it done by the end of the month!

3. Scrapbook...anything...something. We took our Disneyland vacation in May of 08 and I still only have 4 pages done!! Gotta get on it!

4. Concentrate on the important stuff...myself and my family and not stress over the stuff I can't control!

5. Be more at one with myself...I know, I know...that one sounds a little zen like...but I guess that's kinda where I am going with it

Okay...well...that was almost a list of resolutions...maybe I am one of 'those' people? Anyway...wish me luck in all of this. And if you are setting any goals or resolutions for yourself...I wish you all the best!

Okay...onto the first creation for 2010. Technically this was created in 2009 as I made it New Years Eve...but it was made with a new Christmas I am going with 2010!

This is my first Side Step card. I saw Nancy's card and wanted to give it a try. I like's different. The only thing that kinda bugs me about it, is the fact that it spreads out so much. Anyone else made one? And does yours flatten out when you stand it up? It's just a little thing, but it kinda bugs me. ;0) I do like my new stamp though... Heidi Among the Flowers. She was fun to color.

I am hoping to get in some more stamping this week...although we are back to a normal schedule this week, so one never knows. ;0) Be sure to keep an eye out for the new 2010 Christmas Card Challenge. I have a few changes planned for this year. I sure hope everyone has fun with it again this year!

Thanks for stoppin' by

Wonderful project Tracy, love the pretty blue and black, the image is really cute. Wishing you luck on those resolutions ;)

Nancy said...

Beautiful card!!

As far as resolutions, I was going to say lose weight since I too am turning 40, but I don't want to put pressure on me and be disappointed if I fail. Instead it will be to make good choices, move more and hope to have some weight fall off.

Those seem to be okay resolutions....I've Resolved to not make resolutions!! LOL....But being a better person to yourself is the best resolution everyone should follow!

Allison said... it! I have not tried this one! So cute with the CC stamps! And I am with ya on the losing weight thing...maybe we should make it a Cal-gals challenge (and just exclude Merlie...bitch...JK!).
