Happy New Year!

Wowza!! I can't believe it has been OVER a week since I have posted anything here!! Too much to do and not enough time to do it all, I guess. I think today I am going to read a book and take a nap!!

I actually thought about stamping something "just for fun" today, too!! Here is what I came up with. I hosted the LSC on SCS this morning as a last-minute fill-in kinda person (LSC253). I chose to do a "Happy New Year" card in every way ... the challenge was three-fold" (1) "Happy" - stamp the card in 15 minutes or less (which, of course, is happy 'cause it means you will have time leftover to stamp ANOTHER card); (2) "New" - use something you got during the holidays that is fun and "new" to play with (in my case I used the Cuttlebug snowflake border embossing folder I got in a bundle pack); and (3) "Year" - the card needed to be something commemorating an annual-type event - like a birthday, anniversary, or even New Year's> And that is pretty much it!!

I have a mountain of laundry, mountains of messes to clean in my craft room and a MOUNTAIN of books to read ... which is just what I think I will do!!
