Good morning everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I spent Christmas with my children and grand-children.  Most of them anyway.  We had a wonderful week together.  I also had a wonderful suprise from one of my blog friends and former DT member...."Terry".  She sent me the sweetest Christmas card.   It brought tears to my eyes to know that she would remember me and remember what took past last year at this time.  "A great big hug to my sweet friend".  I really appreciate all of my blog friends and DT members.  Each one of you have brought a ray of sunshine in my life this year and it has meant so much to me.  It has really been a difficult year for me and I hope that next year will be a little better.  It is such a joy to be able to share our talents together and our joys and sorrows.  
I want to wish each one of you a blessed New Year.  

It is hard to believe that the year is almost over.   I would love to have things slow down just a little bit.  Have you set a New Years Resolution....??? I haven't even thought about it yet.  If you have, leave me a comment.  I would love to know what it is. 
Now, for our fabulous sketch Arlana has designed for us over at

 Our sponsor is Jodi at BUGABOO.  Jodi is continuiously making new images.  She has such a wonderful imagination.  I am in awe each time I visit her store. 
She is offering seven (7) digi stamps to the Grand prize winner this week.  I hope you will stop on by  and join in the fun...
We love to see your creations.

Great image and I do love your design papers just a perfect match especially with your cute ribbon.

  4. Hi Nancy!
    Adorable card - I just love your snowflake papers, such wonderful colors together and the embossed panel is a perfect touch. That image is so cute - couldn't you just picture a young boy zooming down a sledding hill with that look on his face :) Love the new blog look-that sunflower is amazing! Wishing a wonderful New Year and that fantastic and happy things happen to you throughout the year.
    Hugs to you,

  5. Wow, I love your blog paper too! That sunflower is beautiful!

    Nancy, you really made that sledding image come alive. I love the blue DP and embossing that you used. It really adds that chilly feeling! I will go tomorrow and see if I can buy the tree punch for you!

  6. Fab card Nancy, the image is very cute and I love your colours. I can't believe its the end of 2010 already! My resolutions for this year were to believe in myself and my talents and to do things that I want to do, but don't make time for. That really worked for me this year, so I think I'll carry them forward with me into 2011. Wishing you and your family best wishes for 2011. Wedgie xxx
