Thanks for 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to 2011... I am so glad last year is over, it wasn't one of my best. It started bad with my Dear Momma passing, and that cast a shadow on the entire year. I DID have a wonderful Mid-year with the graduation of my Beautiful Daughter and her acceptance to college along with scholarships. Then saying goodbye to her was hard...I just HAD to let her grow up, though I don't like it...LOL! Enough dribble~
This is my first card for the new year. I want to start digging out some of the older stamps I have, so this is a start...LOL!
I used Stampin' Up's Polka Dots & Paisley to do the entire card. No DP, I can't believe it! The sentiment is from SU Trendy Trees.

This card can be entered in a few Challenges this week, so I will go ahead and enter them into:
Papertake Weekly - Thank You
Cute Card Thursday - Thank You
Phindy's Place - Thank You

Thanks so much for stopping by! Along with my resolution to bring out some of my older stamps sets, I also plan to do more Blogging this year. The loss of my Mom brought with it the loss of my Mojo, but I know she would want me to get back to it! So see you soon! Have a great week!

Rubber Hugs,
Julie

I really like the layout and color combo and that you didn't use DP. Wouldn't have guessed it if you hadn't said it.
I hope you have a very happy new year!
