Happy Valentine's Day, Dear!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
I'm sure you're all still getting rested up from the holiday festivities and looking forward to tackling those New Year Resolutions.
My personal resolution for this year is to repeat the resolution I made several years ago which is to not make another New Year's resolution.
I woefully ever see one through and feel it's just too much pressure on myself and probably not the best way to start the beginning of a year knowing that I'll inevitably fail.
I do however make New Year Speculations...
By definition, speculate means to meditate on a subject; reflect.
So, for 2012, I speculate that:
1) When I am in the garage retrieving a soda from the fridge and I glance across the room and see my treadmill. I speculate that that is probably there for a reason.
2.) When I am in a craft store or online, purchasing and hoarding inordinate amounts of copious, probably unnecessary supplies; quite like a squirrel does with nuts ...
I speculate that in some very vague and rationalized way, this is what the definition of "savings" means. For I'll surely be saving them for a later date!
Either way, however you choose to bring in the new year,
I wish you the VERY BEST of 2012!!
To start the year off right, there's another exquisite Linky Party at

PICK OF THE WEEK

Aren't these tea cups wonderful? The DP she chose makes them look completely real.
Thank you so much for your inspiration!
And here is my card...
I know Christmas just passed and it's still a month away before Valentine's Day, but I figured I needed to get a head start on flanking my husband with love and gratitude and so here's another card I've made to send to him; hopefully before he sees the receipt of my "savings plan" at Hobby Lobby!
(Insert smiles and batting eyelids...)
The cover images are from Free Vintage Digi Stamps and I just LOVE them!
I don't believe that Pamela intended to post these images with the intent that I am posting them; however, I'd like to "speculate" that once the shock wears off of seeing what I've done to them, she'll find the humor in it as well....
Isn't that right, Pamela? Pamela????
Can somebody please check on Pamela!!
Side view of above picture shows a typewriter inside as well and that is from Stampin' Up! set called Established Elegance and I've also used the free Typewriter font from dafont for my sentiment.
Thank you SO much to everyone who visits this post and I truly do wish you the
VERY BEST in 2012!!
Huge Hugs n' Happy Stamping...
