Happy almost 2014!
Sheesh...this year has flown by!

Inside sentiment: It works great!

I don't know about all of you, but this card totally describes how I feel after:
 two full weeks in Germany, followed by two full weeks of Christmas parties, 
foods/candies/cookies, etc.,  and soon to be followed by:
 a New Year's Eve Party, a New Year's Day company, and a Cotton Bowl Party on Friday night!

I am ready to get back to a normal routine, and take off the 5 lbs. I've inherited over the holidays!  I used this stamp set the other day to create a card for my health coaches (which I forgot to photograph!), and decided it was so cute, that I'd use it again!

I'm going to enter it in the challenge at Cardabilities - here is their sketch that I followed. 
Don't you just love a great sketch?

See my beautiful, straight, and even matting?  Used my Perfect Paper Crafting rulers - love, love, LOVE them!  (See my sidebar for details!)  I rarely mat anything without them.
Have a great New Year's Eve!

Hugs, and smiles galore,
Patti J.

I totally hear you on this one. I've gained five pounds too, but Patti together we can loose it. We can nip it in the bud now. I love your card. Can't wait to see your new work in 2014. Happy New Year, once again!

I'm still catching up on posts after being out of town for a few days. I feel a bit like the gal in your image! I need some downtime, too. Wishing you all the best in 2014.
