January 4, 2013

We survived another holiday season! Christmas is all packed up and put away for another year. Today I will clean out the fridge to get rid of foods we don't need! Time for the New Year cleanse! It always feels good to get the house back in order after a crazy month! I'm also loving the extra couple of minutes of daylight each day...Wednesday I drove home under light skies, made me so happy!

Today is also the first Friends With Flair of 2013 over at Unity Stamps! Still in love with this company and their wonderful products! Today's cards were made to send out as thank yous for Christmas gifts received.

both cards are made using a SOTW and scraps of paper

I am also working on Canadian Scrapbooker's January Sketchy Challenge. It's in the final stages and will be posted today or tomorrow. It's a great sketch by Sue Sykes, why not join in the fun and share your interpretation of the sketch!

I love both of your cards. I love how you took the basically the same layout and turned it on its side for one of them. Must try this idea!

I just love that adorable owl with his colorful scarf! My thoughts for the new year mirror yours too! I love that little extra bit of daylight and all my Christmas stuff is packed away too! Now I'm in the midst of doing carpets - I'll do the fridge another time :)
