~ CR84FN and Shabby Tea Room challenges ~

Happy, wonderful 2011! It's here! I know I'm a little late, and this blog has been too quiet. pardon me, I've been so busy. Life runs at the fast pace here in the city, doesn't it?
Sometimes I sit back, sigh, and wish to be a farm-girl... milk the cows, gather eggs, cook all day long (I would LOVE that) but it only exists in my grand imagination.

Back to the subject of this blog =) ... an early little valentine card created with love and with two challenges in mind: Mona's CR84FN9 and Debbie's Shabby Tea Room ... peach, yellow, and pink and 11 elements.

I loved the stretch my creative juice got... so much fun! My eleven elements... vintage trim, stitching, buttons, baker's twine, crystals, pearls, ribbon, flowers, a trinket pin, glitter, and Webster's Pages patterned paper.

 Everyone's getting ready for February and so am I =)

I'm excited about the whole, new year. Many wonderful opportunities and blessings are coming up... to name a couple:

- I will turn 19 ... another year before 20! Almost there.

- I will join the DT of a wonderful company that makes sweet, simple stamps... made-in-USA, clear stamps, my favorite kind. it will be announced late January or early February.

I'm so glad for the many opportunities that have opened up to me after I started this little blog. I will do my best to keep you all updated, and inspired, as we go along. Thank you to everyone of you who have encouraged me in the early months of beginnings here. I hope we will have a wonderful year together.

Oh, a few more pictures, before I forget...

  27. Absolutely beautiful card! Congratulations on your upcoming 'jobs.'
    By the way, I live on a farm, don't milk a cow, have chickens but have no idea where they lay the eggs so I can't gather them and I hate to cook. :)
