Give up chocolate??!!

So, new year, lots of ambition to get healthy.  
I'm pleased to be working diligently to get in shape and have some wonderful new fitness friends to keep me motivated.  However, hot cocoa will remain my indulgence during these winter months.  At least I'm exercising enough to help offset the calories, but who really could give up chocolate???!!

The new Occasions Mini stamp set "Eat Chocolate" is any easy favorite for me.  I can see this used for lots of people I know.  For this card I used some Valentine colors, blushing bride & cherry cobbler, with white &  early espresso.  I've got to ease my way into Valentines.  For some reason I struggle making those.   I will look to all my fellow crafty friends out there for inspiration, so enjoy & keep crafting!

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2011!

January is a big birthday month in my family.  Below is a birthday card for my father in law.  The vest card is the spitting image of the Western wool vest we got him as a gift! 

Gotta go & enjoy the last "holi-DAY"... tomorrow it's all back to work as usual... ho hum.

Love my craft buddy!
