Happy New Year - Challenges

Hello everyone, I've been away a really long time! Boy there just isn't enough hours in the day. I wanted to pop in though and wish everyone the Happiest of New Years. I wish nothing but Health, Happiness and Wealth to each of you out there in cyberland.

My New Year's Weekend has been a WONDERFUL stay at home weekend and so I've found time to stamp. I got to stay around the house last weekend too (Christmas) because Oklahoma had a BLIZZARD, yes you read that right a honest to goodness blizzard! It was crazy, I was so glad I was able to stay comfy and warm in my house with my Puppies and they loved it too.

The card below is a product of two challenges Mary Jo's Monday sketch challenge TSSC102 and the Diva Coffee Breaks Color Challenge #158. I just love this turtle from Stampin' UP!'s Nature's Nest stamp set, he's very fun to watercolor.

I certainly appreciate you stopping by to take a look. I'll try to be more consistent but no false promises, because I'm in the Accounting field and I'm getting ready to enter a very busy stressful time. But posting more consistently is one of my New Year's goal, not resolutions, I have a tendency to break those.

One more quick note, I'm very excited because this weekend I'll be part of a wonderful rescue effort to give new Forever Homes to two sweet sweet Pit Bull doggies. They are traveling from San Diego, California to their forever homes and are laying over in Oklahoma City on there way. Since it's a volunteer effort all the transporting is done on the weekends so they need a place to stay on their trip. I'm the lucky girl who will get to foster them. I'll try to take some pictures and post them so you can see their sweet little faces for yourself.
Remember those homeless pets out there who don't want anything but to be apart of a loving home! Adopt DON'T BUY!! You'll save a LIFE!!

Thanks and talk to you soon.

It's good to hear from you again - you were missed. Look forward to seeing the pics of the babies you'll be caring for on their way to their forever homes - you're a wonderful person to help out like this. Blessings
