Stocking Tag and Looking Back and Ahead

It seems like everybody is making tags, so I got on the bandwagon, but just for this one.  (There are oreo truffles in the bag, YUMMMM!)

I know I post and then keep disappearing on you, but I'm trying to change that, I really am! 

Just a few thoughts looking back and ahead:

1.  I am thankful for a healthy family.  Chad continues to be cancer-free, my little boy is healthy, funny, and sweet (usually), and our new baby girl is healthy, smiley, and happy too!

2.  In spite of the economy and unemployment rates, my hubby was able to get a new and MUCH BETTER job, for which we are very thankful.

3.  I have a few goals for next year: getting back to a regular stamping and blogging and commenting schedule, cleaning out the basement (which includes my stamp space), selling my unused stamp supplies instead of leaving them sitting in boxes, reclaiming some of my kitchen cabinets that just have STUFF in them, and completing my cookbook project. 

There.  Now my goals are in writing for all the world to see, so now I HAVE to accomplish them, lol!  Thanks for stopping by, a happy and healthy new year to you and your family!

Supplies:
stamps - none
paper - old olive, simply chartreuse, pure poppy, white, scenic route pp
ink - none
acc - tage sale #1 die, stocking die (both pti); simply chartreuse felt; 1/4" white gg; rhinestones; scallop edge punch, dimensionals

Richly Blessed

Better get busy posting some Christmas cards I've made, lol!  I just can't believe how fast Christmas is coming up on us, yikes.  I am just about ready, have to wrap stuff.  Anyway, I got a few new things from Verve, and I used this beautiful sentiment from Richly Blessed.  The layout is an old fave.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Baby Tag

Hello, friends!  Happy snowy day to you!  I made this tag for a baby shower I attended a week ago.
I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as far as my return to stamping goes.  Baby girl is 4 months old now and sleeping through the night as well as taking at least one good nap a day.  So hopefully you will be seeing more of me as time goes on.

Here are my two munchkins all decked out for Christmas AND the all-important Ohio St/Michigan game.  Thanks for stopping by!

stamps - vintage oval frame (verve), mega mixed messages (PTI)
paper - early espresso, kraft, pear pizzazz, raspberry fizz
ink - white, espresso
acc - blooms nesties, rolled flower die (mft), leaves die (su), vintage oval frame die (verve), pearls
