Finally a non Christmas Card!!!



Well it sure feels good making a non Christmas card. As much as I love making them,it was too many for one month,I'll have to get ahead next year so I don't run into that problem again.

I don't know about you my friends,but I ate toooo much over the holidays!! I had promised myself that I wouldn't,but I didn't listen to my old self! So now I must pay the price,I'll have to work it off,it's ok,as long as I catch myself right away.

So any big plans to ring in the New Year??? I can't believe it,another year gone by! We are going to my oldest brother's place for dinner and then we're just going to ring in 2009 with our family. It should be fun,I'm always the first one to leave,it gets very tiring for me,but I can't pass it,I love being with my sister and 3 brothers.

Anyways,the card is an image I had rec'd,I think she is called Ebony,sorry if I'm wrong. I used a Fiskars Punch (Love my punches) and added some primas that my DH bought me today,(aren't they pretty) and used some pearl for her necklace and a bead in her hair and added some MS pearls at the top of the Inkadinkado sentiment.

Enjoy,and hugs to all of you!!! Diane

card is gorgeous, and YES, I think I put on about 5 pounds, just in sweets! Yikes! Now I've got to go back into "weight loss" mode... right after I make an almond joy cake. Gotta ring in the new year right, huh?

Great new banner! The card is so cute too. Punches, pearls and primas - you go girl! Glad to hear you have some fun things planned for NYE. Don't stress too much about the food - you're on top of things and it will all be fine! ~chris

Such a beautiful card Diane! I LOVE this girl image, and your scallop and pearls--it's all lovely. :) I'm in the mood for non-christmasy cards as well. It's my favorite time of year, but glad to move on.
