Simplicity will be key for me in 2011. Staying organized (not usually a problem, LOL), managing my time (always a problem–but sounds like a contradiction to staying organized) and finding even more opportunities to create are just some of my goals. Eating healthier, continuing my walking routine (a resolution from last year) and reading more books (my recent favorite is Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver) and simply more "hang" time with my family will continue to be at the top of my resolutions list.
How about you . . . do you have a resolve to do more stamping (maybe try a PPA challenge) or make a personal life change? Please leave me a comment at the end of this post. I would love to hear what's on your mind.
Today's card exemplifies simplicity in both style and the minimal number of products needed to assemble it. Although I adore experimenting with a few more layers and accessories, too, a clean and simple style always stays closest to my heart!
