I would like to thank all of the TSTR ladies for having me..........*THANK YOU*!!!! I had a blast and I'm looking forward to playing with you soon again!!!



I had the perfect stamp set for this challenge...the fabulous Flourishes Letters in Blossom Set!!!

If you would like to win this fabulous set....then leave me a message on what your *NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION* is/will be???? You have until next Monday, January 7, 2013 to play and I will announce the winner with my post the next day!!!

After several years at a healthy weight, I have gained again. It has been so wonderful to see the last few New Years come without having to resolve to lose weight, but I am determined to get back to where I was.

Along with that, I know my discipline has slipped in other areas. I'd like to get back on track with scripture memorization again. That's something I can do while exercising.

May 2013 be a blessed year for you, Silke!

Lovely use of the doily and letter sets. Since plantar fasciitis hit me in 2012 for over six months my "fit and firm at 50" didn't really happen so going for "fit and firm at fifty one" this year :) Blessings for a fabulous 2013!

Beautiful, beautiful! Actually, I have 2 goals this year. As a papercrafter, I'd like to work on getting something published which I've never done before. Personally, I'm working on a weight loss program. I've procrastinated far too long - lol!

TLady said...

HI SILKE! :)
Would LOOOOOOOVE to win this set! :)
My "New Years Resolution" or GOAL as I like to call it, is based on Psalm 27:4, "One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after______________." For the blank, I filled it in with *That I will become more knowledgeable in the things of God, that I can help others. * That I will be used of God. * That I will be pleasing to God. I'm EXCITED about this learning process I am NOW doing too! :) Wrote my Goal out on a 3x5 card & placed it on my desk as a REMINDER! :)

TLady said...

Maria said...

Beautiful cards such an inspiration to us new ones just starting and not young any more a great-grandmother and am loving every minute of it.

Rema said...

Beautiful card and stamp set! My New Year's resolution is to spend less on stamping supplies. It's going to be hard but I over did it last year and I dont really need all the stuff I buy. I just like to spread it all out and just look at it....

Lynda said...

What a beautiful note...in this world of electronics I think there is nothing more special than a handmade, handwritten card.
My 'resolution' is to purge and organize! I have become somewhat of a hoarder when it comes to stamping supplies.

Discipline is my resolution for this year. Discipline in what I eat, in exercise, and for daily devotions.
Beautiful card!
Thanks for the chance for this gorgeous stamp set.

The Letters In Bloom card you made for Flourishes is gorgeous - I love the soft colors, the monograms which are colored beautifully, the scored details on the card stock, the pink and white layers, the different sized pearls down both sides and the charming doily. My personal response - the card is breath taking! Absolutely breath taking!

You asked about a New Years resolution. My first one is to be more grateful and content with what God has given me and not complain about what He holds back (for my good). Second is to organize my stamping area and use what I have. After getting organized, being able to increase the cards for my "Widows List", like Valentine's Day and Just Because!

Hi Silke-
First, I love your cards...I love your style and wish that I could make cards like you. They always seem to have order, depth and such class to them. So with that being said, my resolution for 2013 is to create with a purpose and my style.

Thank you for the amazing opportunity.
