Happy Stampin' New Year, FWF!

I hope everyone has a prosperous and joy-filled 2010! I've been having a blast on the WiiFit that I actually bought for ds's Christmas (He loves those snowboarding games. Good thing, too, living in the South, that's about how close he's going to get...) but have discovered that it's not nearly as painful as I'd feared. Maybe I can make that resolution stick, even once school starts back Monday.

So, what do you fix for New Year's in your part of the world? Here, pork (we're having smoked babybacks), collards, and hoppin' John (blackeyes with rice) are requirements! I've got some cornbread and sweet potato pie, too.

Anyway, here are my offerings for the week:

Did this for the SCS sketch challenge last week. The Unity stamp is "My, What a Beautiful Tree". The cardinal is from CHF.

I also had to suddenly whip together a gift bag, so I turned to my Ippity:

*Sigh* I hate it when Christmas is over! DS has begged for his small tree to stay up until Epiphany. I was happy to give in.

Thanks for stopping by; y'all come back!

Here's the whole hop, just in case you missed the beginning

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Whew! Chasin' those Sunday Deadlines!

I hope everyone has had a lovely holiday. We certainly did! (She said as she attacked yet another serving of rice pudding...) I really should be working on getting word games ready for the new semester, so, of course, I'm making cards!

I knocked out a couple for two challenges:

Here's my Paper Hugs entry!

Should have used the bigger cupcake, but I like seeing the pp, too. The pinks are from Basic Grey.

And here's for Mojo Monday:

Stamp by Verve (Shoestring Alert! - Verve, Unity, Bella, and some others are having a big ol' sale through SCS!)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a good week!
