~~Happy New Year 2012~~

This is my New Year's card for all of my peeps who stop by or follow me. May your new year be blessed with health, happiness, and love... but most of all love!

I'm not very good at keeping Resolutions so this year I'll continue to practice my semi new mantra, 'Don't sweat the small stuff!'. I learned this 5 years ago when my hubby was diagnosed with cancer and have been practicing it ever since. I used to be a big 'worrywort' and would lose countless hours of time and sleep over every little thing. I'd worry about my kids, who are all in their 40's; if what I was doing [or not doing] was right, what will people think, what will they say, yadda yadda yadda! It wasn't easy letting go of all the baggage but I did, and I feel so much better! I hope you can let go of the small stuff too and just enjoy life and what you have today.

Now for my card... most of it is digital images and paper from Paulette here at Create with Tlc. I've become addicted to her blog and you will too when you visit! Paulette is very generous with her time and talent, and there is a freebie at least once a day. Please... remember if you snag a freebie to leave a comment and thank her.

I hope you like my card and 'Thanks' for stopping by.
