Happy New Year!

Hey, hey everyone! Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great holiday break. We spent some time just BEING rather than running all over the place and it was really great. Today started back to normal -- hubby back to work after over a week off and Aden is off to school tomorrow! I gotta say... I'm ready to get back into the routine of everyday life!

I'm here today to show you some quick thank you cards I whipped up right after Christmas. They were made with two of my favorite things: Snow Cute from My Cute Stamps and Echo Park Paper Co's Everybody Loves Christmas line! I LOVE this little penguin!

Here are the cards:

So, so cute! AND SOOOO easy! I colored these cuties in with my Copics - I did the black one first... super cute, but very traditional. So... I decided my next one had to be a little more out of the box! How about a purple and hot pink penguin! Out of the box, for sure! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Fillable Frames #5.

Here are individual shots of each card! I love these and think they are super sweet!

One other BIG thing I want to share with you is that I am using Becky Higgins' PROJECT LIFE this year! YAY! I came across Project Life through Michelle Wooderson's blog and was floored! It is so stylish, organized, and EASY! I have chosen to use the digital version because nothing is easier than dropping in pictures and typing in journaling to me- there's zero stress involved! While I am a huge fan of scrapbooking and documenting memories, I am EXTREMELY behind and am way to stressed about it. I'm starting fresh! I'm almost finished an album using last years Project Life version for 2010 -- and I started it a week ago! YAY! Check it out! It's an awesome product and I am super excited to make Project Life part of MY LIFE!

Thanks for stopping by today!
