Happy New Year - Friends with Flair - Mojo - and a fun news to share!

A few pretty quotes for a special day of our new year to share.  I found these as I was searching for special New Year's toasts and I thought why not share them?  I really love the meaning each carried.

"This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!"

by William Arthur Ward

"Every new year people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves they believe are negative. A majority of people revert back to how they were before and feel like failures. This year I challenge you to a new resolution. I challenge you to just be yourself."
by Aisha Elderwin

My good news to share about is that I finally get to announce that I made it on the Scrap-mart DT...yaaaaaaaaa!!!  I have been honored with my cards displayed on their blog from time to time in the past, so I thought I would try out for it.  I love everything they carry in the store, Unity Stamps, Justrite Stampers, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, Copic, just to name a few, so I knew it would be so much fun working with them.  I am super excited to get going and creating for Scrap-mart along with the other lucky ladies.  Please check out their blog to see, who the other talented ladies are.

And now back to our first Friends with Flair of 2010.  I didn't want to miss out on it, even though I have another huge post with more beautiful cards to share for Caardvarks today.  Anyway, I   I created a pretty card with {ippity}stamps and used this week's Mojo Sketch for it.

For this card I used {ippity}'s Because of you set and some very yummy Anna Griffin and Bo Bunny papers.  I am really pleased with the way this turned out.

My second card is posted on the {ippity} blog today, so if you have a chance check it out....

Have a happy hop!
