Almost 2008....

Can you believe it? Only 20 more days and 2007 is history. I have no idea where the last 3 months went.

I think maybe its true what they say - that time speeds up as you get older. Or maybe life just gets so busy that you lose track.

Still, it has been a year full of blessings and opportunities and I am grateful for it. And I have some new ideas and challenges on deck for 2008 that I'm really excited about.

Besides - our family has a bunch of celebrations in the next 20 days. DH and I will have been married 14 years (14?? Really? How did that happen?) on December 18. My oldest DD turns 8 on the 19th. We visit family for Christmas - so more parties there.

And frankly - I'm just not ready yet to start thinking about those dreary New Years resolutions - maybe on the 30th....

About the card:
All stamps by justjohanna
Paper is Autumn Leaves
Colored with Copic markers
Used my Nestibles! And my Cuttlebug (Textile emboss folder)

I KWYM! The years do seem as if they are flying by! I hope that 2008 is calmer that 2007.
Our December is filled with birthdays (DD, DS and DH) and it seems that our daughters share the same birthdate. My oldest will be 18 on the 19th.
On to the card! You've got me thinking about those nestabilities too! I just love what you've been doing with them. This card is so cute!

That's such a CUTE card! :D

I also have no idea where 2007 has gone, particularly the last few months. Seems it was only yesterday I was saying "6 weeks to Christmas"...now it is just around the corner.

Love your blog, and your cards are gorgeous! Very happy to be in SBS2 with you, and am looking forward to getting to know you!

Gorgeous card. I love that paper!

Happy Anniversary!

You, like me, must have been a child bride.

And Michelle, whoever she is, needs the Nestibilities.

Yikes! I hadn't even thought about the end of the year yet. Heck, it hasn't sunk in that it's Christmas. The New Year's card is cute! I love how you colored the bird.

Marnie said...

Awesome New Year card! Faster and faster everything goes!

How cute is this guy!!! Love him. My oldest son (the middle child) was born on the 19th also :) He will be 22 this year, so I have spent many years not decorating for Christmas until after his birthday. Now that I can do it earlier, I have a hard time getting motivated until after his birthday, LOL.

My hubby and I just celebrated 14 in November! Congratulations to you and your hubby! I love your card! I feel like the last couple of years have been on fast forward, and I wish I could find the button to press to make it stop! Happy Holidays!
