A Pretty Card, A New Project and MY Word for 2009

The most creative cardmaker I know is Nancy Vandenberg . She makes the most AMAZING cards! So when she offers a card tutorial on her blog, I am always inspired to join in. Here is my take on her latest card. I loved this design!

I don't get to scrap with pink very much, so I guess this was my chance to go a little wild. I used some bright papers from Hambly, Lil Davis and some pretty Prism cardstock that I got in a kit from Sis tv called 'Rock Star'. I Love how funky and fun they are. Of course I had to add some aqua bling. A girl can never have enough bling! LOL! Here is a top view of the card. Again really loved this design! You can check out Nancy's class here.

I also wanted to share 2 things that I have decided to try this year. One is 'project 365' (taking a photo a day for the whole year). This will make a great year in review next January. Check out my friend Debbie's here for 2008. Love this idea!

I also picked One Little Word (MY word for the year). I picked 'express'. Not as in fast, but as in expressing myself through projects, writing and speaking. I am going to do my best to follow through on both of these. Wish me luck!

Good luck Dawn! the project 365 can get tedious at times, so email me if you need a shoulder sometime around August! :-) I think I just might keep going again for this year...haven't totally decided. I think I want to put a new twist on it. I'm looking for new ideas. But its pretty much a habit now!

I love your new song choice. Very apperpo (I'm sure I spelled that wrong). I'm doing the project 365 as my new blog. I got the idea from Becky Higgins new KOTM. I tried to buy it but it sold out. I love Debbie's and can't wait to see yours.
