Happy New Year!!



Here is wishing each and every one the New Year that you want to have!!

I am still fighting my cold, but am feeling better. I am hoping I am able to actually get some things accomplished today.

See the card to the right?? It is a bumper card I received this week from Pamela. If you have been around me lately, you have probably heard me talking about A Muse stamps (http://www.amuseartstamps.com). I am completely and utterly addicted to these stamps. This, in turn, led me to their message board and forums aptly entitled "A Muse Addicts" (http://www.amuseaddicts.com). One of the activities I signed up to do was to participate in a bumper card swap. I had no real idea of what that was when I joined, but essentially you sign up, are given a name, and then you are given a deadline to make and mail a card to that person. It only costs you time and one postage stamp. The upside is you will randomly receive mail, a card made especially for you (versus junk mail). It was fun to do. This is the card I received. I love the color combination of pink and green as well as the touch of glitter. For those of you who know me, that is not a big shock. I think Pamela did a great job and her card certainly made my day when I received it!!! My card is done and has been mailed. I hope the recipient likes it!! Not to enable anyone, but A Muse is releasing their new stamps for Valentine's Day tomorrow, January 2. Personally, I can't wait!!
