Starting the New Year with Squigglefly.... and it's PINK! :)

Coffee of the Day - Peppermint

Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope this year brings you everything beautiful, a sense of how truly loved you are, and a new knowledge of just how much God adores being with you!

I start my year with a posting that announces my welcome to the Squigglefly DT! yippeeee! What a wonderful group of talented women I am joining! So I thought I would make something using this wonderful digi by a new artist to Squigglefly, Rich Davis, and of course, make it PINK! :) Have to ring in the new year in proper Jen-style: pink, shimmerz, bow, heart, button - the works! giggles! the only thing missing is the Basic Grey paper, but I used another fave - October Afternoon. and a new fave embellie - sequins. so a little old, a little new......the heart is actually a Prima piece, so that is part of my crafty resolution: to use things that I have in my stash. actually the soft pink yarn is as well. The sequins do match irl, but the little gremlin in my scanner hasn't misbehaved in a while, so he decided to get in on the action today. The hearts on the plate have been painted with pink shimmerz.

Here are a few of my resolutions for this year:
  • to re-purpose more in my crafting
  • to use more of what I have in regard to my crafting
  • to be wise in how I spend my $
  • to leave comments when I visit a blog - if I have time to visit, I should be kind enough to say hello
  • to take the time to visit more blogs, at least on a weekly basis
  • to pay more attention to how God is trying to get my attention. He has always been faithful to me. I need to be more faithful to Him.
  • to see God EVERY day all around me. to hear God all around me. to feel God all around me. to continue to talk to God EVERY moment.
  • to show my friends and family how much I love them ALL THE TIME! :)

I had better stop there, 'cause that is gonna be more than enough..... how about you? do you have any resolutions? mine are more about wanting to be a better person, not just for a year, but for a lifetime..... can't do it on my own, that is for certain. will you help me please?

Love ya bunches! and thank you for walking with me and being my friend! Jennifer

p.s. oh yes, I used a sketch provided by Mish (loosely I must add! grins!) for this card. check out her blog and play along! :)

Great card, love the additions of the sequins. in trying to use up items from my own stash, I found a bunch of these and was wondering if I was going to use them or not. Best wishes in the new year.

This will certainly cheer someone up. The soft colors are lovely and I like your heart embellishment at the top.

A good set of goals for the year, I think we all need to "repurpose" more and consider the items we use in our crafting. Best wishes for 2010!

Happy New Year Jennifer, Just wanted to stop by and check out your blog, I like it and I think you are right about leaving comments. I will try to do better at that also. I know I love it when people stop by mine. My resolution this year is to loose weight and keep my blog up to date and a lot more fun for people to visit.
