New Year Resolutions

I have been thinking about what I would like for myself in 2009.
Here's my list...

- More time with my family and friends
- Have my home cleaned up and organized by the start of the year
- My new mantra - "Everything has its place"
- Try to post to my blog every day
- Try to make a card a day
- Complete at least one challenge from SCS / blog every week
- Post to my favorite forums on SCS more regularly
- To make each day count
- To go to sleep and wake up with a happy and grateful heart

Come back tomorrow afternoon for a Monday's Fun Day post.
Until then, think of at least one new year's resolution for yourself!

To kick start one of my resolutions, I completed a couple of challenges today.
The first one is from Gina K - "Double Mat".
The second one is from Sharon on her blog, No Time To Stamp?

Here's the card I came up with:


It's using a 12 x 12" Chocolate Chip textured cardstock that I trimmed to 6" x 12" and folded in half to make a 6" x 6" card.

Stamp set: Owl Always Love You
Inks: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Tangerine Tango (SU), Kiwi Kiss (SU)
Copic Markers (YG03, YG23, YG95, YG97, G99, E29, E37, RV09, RV11)
Accessories: Scalloped Square Nestabilites, Pink Pirouette 1-1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Word Window Punch, sponge daubers


See you tomorrow!

I would like to know how much you would sell the owl card for. My mother-in-law loves owls, so this would be perfect for her. My name is Monday (really!) and my email address is Please let me know if you'd be willing to make and sell me one. Thanks. Enjoying your blog!
