thankful...

I have decided to choose a word this year to try to keep me on the straight and narrow, as I was thinking of different words that I could use I kept coming back to THANKFUL...I have so so much to be thankful for in 2011...I hope to do a layout soon to represent my thoughts on this.
Being a new year and new month there is a new challenge up at Show us your Stuff. There is a sketch we had to follow created bythe fabulous Michelle and of course use a hand made item, We were lucky enough to receive some lovely handmade flowers from Pretty Petals who are a sponsor this month.
I decided to create a card instead of a layout, something that I am starting to enjoy doing. I hope you can join in the fun with me.
If you are after a bargain head on over to Handmade by Suzanne who has 30% of most items in stock, papers, embellishments, embossing powders, glitter, stickers , thickers...the list goes on, the only things not on sale are punches and papers that were new in December...what a bargain, I'm off to check it out my self!
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year and I look forward to sharing and gaining some inspiration from everyone out there in the coming year!
Till next time...
