Look Well To This Day

“Look well to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.

In it lies all the realities and verities of existence: the bliss of growth, the glory of action, splendor of beauty.

For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision.

But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day, for it and it alone is life!

Such is the salutation of the dawn.”

Starting my New Year's Resolution...

I just found this and a number of other almost posted pieces and thought I woulod share. I know I could save until nest year, here I go!

My resolution for 2011, is to be much more active in posting to this blog...

A couple of nights ago I though I better get busy.  I had not been able to exchange some holiday gifts up until now.  And of course I had to make some cards to go with the gifts...and I sat up quite late to get this accomplished.  Not having the best light to photograph, I used my iPhone with flash for the pictures.  Please excuse the thumb nail in the pictures! (he-he-he)

Santa was created with a great whimsical Santa stamp by Inkadinkado.  He and the Merry Christmas was stamped with VersaMark Watermark, embossed with Ranger Embossing Tinsel, colored with Copics and a little extra Distress Stickles in Peeled Paint and Fire Brick for Santa's holly on his hat. The Merry Christmas was from the Tim Holtz's  Retro Holliday Collection.My DP is Recollections Basic Red Dots. All was stamped on and mounted on Neenah Classic Crest -Solar White

My snowman is also from Tim Holtz's Holiday Collection. Stamped on some navy blue shimmer paper (sorry I don't have the DP info).  He was stamped with Brilliance Midnight White and embossed with Judi Kins Clear embossing Powder.  I added some Navy Spica to the unstamped areas for some extra sparkle, additional bling was added with some silver bling in assorted sizes and I hand wrote the greeting with a white ink pen.

Finally there was a very pretty sunset tonight.  I captured the sunset through our window with 
the screen in...kinda nice texture look to the photo...right?

Too bad the telephone poles were in the way :o(

Well I have come to the end of my 1st blog for 2011, I certainly hope I will be more 
faithful and post many, many times more...

Until next time...
