Happy New Year!


It's a brand new year, stretching out and waiting for us to craft! :)  If you are in need of inspiration, check out Gingersnap Creation's Reasons to Stamp for January.  Lots of ideas to get your creative juices flowing.  My card is for National Skating Month, since my entire family loves to skate (either figure or hocky, which pretty much divides along gender lines!).  I used a bunch of items gathered together from my very messy scrap table!

Here's another card for January, in honor of Universal Letter Writing Week, January 8th-14th.  If one of your resolutions is to keep in touch with old friends, you can kick it off this week (a perfect follow-up to Christmas cards).

I used Cornish Heritage Farms' On the Desk set for this one, plus some embellies from Making Memories Vintage Findings.

Hope your New Year is starting out beautifully!
