Happy Gregorian New Year!

Today we woke up to a winter wonderland! Finally, everything has been coated with a layer of snow oh so white. Personally, if I never see that white stuff again in my life, it would be too soon. However, the kids like it, at least First Born does, proven by the fact she's been outside in the blustery windy cold for over 1.5 hours now!  brrrr....

To kick off 2012, I went to the Y for a BodyPump class. I am going to severely miss working out every day starting next week. Between working full time and the kids' activities, not to mention everything else, the logistics just doesn't work!  If only UPS can help! LOL.  So...  I will just have to bask one more day in the glories of every day fitness!

Here are a couple of cards that I made using the Work in Progress January 2012 kit, perfect to show them here today!  I quite enjoyed the muted kraft, grays and soft yellows of the kit.  It's quite a change from my last post and layout!
On this day, the Vikings have wrapped a dismal season and this fan can't wait to put the 2011 season behind her!  However, the playoff games are coming up and they will be fun to watch for the next few weeks! 

Here's to a wonderful first day of 2012 and many many more to come!

Here in WI we also had some snow and I didn't see my boys for hours-they enjoyed it outside. The use of monochromatic shades in your projects are outstanding! Have a great new year.

We had a dusting of snow the other day, but it had melted by Noon. Fine with me!

The cards are adorable! Enjoy the rest of your working-out time before you're back to work!

Happy 2012!!!

Happy New Year to you, Jing Jing! Fun that you guys got snow for the holiday. The kids always enjoy it, so it's a nice treat for them. LOVE your cards. The yellow and gray mixed with the kraft is SO fabulous!

Great cards!! I love the colors. Kids didn't play in the snow. Oldest came over to visit and get her presents over Christmas and shared her cold. So, the kids and I are fighting colds. I saw later this week it is to up about 40. I am sure whatever we got will be gone!! I hope you have a great week!!!

Jing Jing, your cards may be a change from your last layout but are most definitely just as inspiring and classy. :)
