Follow Your Dreams....

These past few weeks I've been wrapping things up at work because next week I'm starting a NEW JOB!!!  I got the offer right before Christmas so it's been in the works for almost a month now.  This new job is an amazing opportunity and I'm really really excited.  It will be a BIG change but I'm ready for it!

So today's card is for ME!  YEP, I made myself a card....

Stamps:  None - Sentiment generated in MS Word 
Paper:  Basic Black, PTI White, Glittery White
Accessories:  Circle and Star Punches

Okay, I also made this card for the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (to make a card that celebrates an accomplishment, and feature at least one circle).  I think this new job fits the accomplishment theme perfectly and you can see I have included 4 circles.

So, here's to me Following My Dreams.....CHEERS!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card!  You can find the CAS-ual Fridays challenge here:

2012 Year in Review

Happy New Year!

In January 2012 I took the CAS card class and really focused on making cards that were much more clean and simpleI have really had to focus on balance and design more than ever in my attempt to grow as a cardmaker with a CAS focus.  It's been so much fun following blogs and becoming friends with some very talented card makers this year.  I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring. 

Here are my 10 favorite cards from 2012 in no particular order.


I have one more card to share with you from 2012.  Interestingly this last card is my most pinned card on Pinterest and it really isn't even one of my ten favorites but apparently there are a lot of people that really like it.


I hope you had a wonderful holiday seasonThanks for stopping by and checking out my favorite cards from 2012.
