IT'S A NEW YEAR!!!

Happy 2010 everyone!! I have been enjoying my time off with my family so that is why I have not posted in awhile....but now, I am back in the stamping frame of mind, lol! My oldest son is still home from college but will leave on Friday morning so tomorrow we are going to spend the whole day together doing fun things! I am even going to keep the two younger ones out of school....wish Tony could hang out with us but he is already back up in Susanville working. So, since the kiddos were occupied with the new Wii I took some time to play with my new goodies from the mini catty that is available to customers on February 1st. It is packed full of yummy goodness - new paper, stamps, brads, ribbon, and yep, new punches, my FAVE!!! And, ya know it's Sale-A-Bration time again, right??!! That means FREE STAMPS, YIPPEE!!!! I love this time of year at SU!!!! So, here is my card for today - I used the Mojo Monday sketch this week that Julee did, just love it. And, all the products are from the new mini, which I adore! I even ordered my new stamps in the unmounted sets to try them out and I love them!! And, they cost less too.......can't say that is a bad thing *wink*. I really like them, and like even more that there is a whole set of clear blocks that go with them. So, now I am off to get ready for a day of shopping, eating, and hanging out with my kiddos - life is GOOD! Thanks so much for stopping by, cannot wait to see what all of you have been creating so I have a date with my reader tomorrow after the airport. See ya then!
