Happy New Year!!

Believe it or not, our happy group of stampers is still going strong! I just lost my desire to blog about it. But here is what we did for January 2012. It is a regular problem for me (and a lot of us card makers) to make birthday cards for the men in my life. I love to make the frilly, frou-frou, cards with lots of ribbon and flowers and embellishments. But I just can't bring myself to give one of those to my hubby or father-in-law or brother, etc. So our theme this month was to make a birthday card for a man. Not a boy. We'll be doing those in a few months. So I think we mostly nailed this one. See what you think.

This month we also started sharing recipes to put in little address books that we found at the Dollar Tree. We altered them and they are turning out so cute. I hope to have pics of those next time.

I am looking forward to 2012 and I hope that you are too! Keep on being creative!

Love those manly man cards. Happy New Year to you! Your creativity also came out in the visiting teaching presentation last night. It was a great evening.
