Making good on New Year's resolutions


Happy Wednesday to you, hope you are all well.

Today was my first day back at work after having five weeks at home with my boys during school holidays (BLISS!). It was nice though being back at work, catching up with everyone and hearing about what the got up to over the holidays.

I have been going really well on my New Year's resolutions, how about you?
I decided to focus this year on losing weight, eating healthy, posting more often on my blog, creating more masculine cards and to start using some of the fabulous stamp sets I have gathering dust in my craft room.

So far so good!! I'm down almost 4kg in the last five weeks and I am posting for the third time this week and with a masculine card too!! So all in all I reckon I'm doing pretty good, lol.

My card tonight uses an old Stampin' Up! set that my Mum sent me ages ago called "For Father" pretty sure it is retired now.

Papers are also from Stampin' Up! called "Well Worn".

I don't know about you, but I find creating masculine cards really difficult. They never seem finished to me and always look terribly plain. I guess its the lack of pearls and flowers, lol.

Hopefully I will be back again soon with another card to share with you this week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Michelle :o)

Hi Michelle,

A very happy new year to you and yours... glad that you are losing weight. Well done. And this is a great masculine card!!!

A few days ago I mentioned you in one of my posts. Thanks for helping me out with blogger and teaching me how to link a post. Remember??? Well that is what I have mentioned in that post.

I keep in touch with your lovely mum and kinda feel that it connects me to you as well. Know what I mean? Lol.
I managed to raise USD 500 for Japan Red Cross - a special thanks to all my blog buddies.

GASP! That's an adorable image. :) I've not seen that one at all from SU. Way to go Mom for snagging this one up for you...too cute.
Most excellent way to showcase the image too. Not plain at all...
if it's discretely elaborate then it qualifies as masculine.
Have a great weekend Michelle and kudos to you for the great work on your resolutions.
