Friday Fresh Ideas


I thought a lovely quote would be perfect for the day, so enjoy this beautiful finding by Edith Lovejoy Pierce

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves. 
The book is called "Opportunity" 
and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
So, what opportunity will you take this year?  This is Eva and I am typing this message for you on New Years Eve.  We are going to have some sushi tonight, then come home and write out our Ideal Scenes for next year, then celebrate the New Year!  We do this every New Years Eve and because of those Ideal Scenes, so much has come true for me this year, so I really recommend you to sit down and write out what you see yourself doing in 2010, as if you were already doing it.  It's really amazing how much one can accomplish with having direction, once energy is put behind it. Why don't you try it???  You have nothing to loose, in fact it's a lot of fun creating your future!
My wish for you is for all your Dreams to come true, may you have lots of Happiness, Prosperity, Joy, Health and Much Love.
Anyway, today it is also Friday, so I bring you a fresh ideaSo, as I was thinking, what to share, I was totally out of fresh ideas, so I kept thinking what I should do, specially after seeing Maria's amazing creation, did you see that by the way???  WOW, she sure blew me away and in 2010 you will see a lot more texture from me.  Anyway, as I was sitting, scratching my head, something came to me....what do people do when they need a fresh idea???  Well, duh....let's just go to Splitcoaststampers Challenges section!  They only have a challenge for every day of the week and than some...hehehe.  

So my card today was made for this week's Featured Stamper challenge FS151

My card uses the Because of you set, which has become my favorite {ippity} stamp set lately.  Hope you enjoy it and have fun getting fresh ideas from the Challenge section!

Have a fabulous {ippity} day!
