Happy New Year!

I can't believe it is 2012!  This last year passed by so quickly - and yes, it is true when you get older the time passes much, much faster than when you were a child!  

I have been MIA quite a bit recently, my husband had back surgery on December 6th and then Christmas came like a runaway train.  My mother is in a nursing home and her health has been steadily declining the last two weeks.  It was with great joy that I was able to work in my craft room the last couple of days and I do have a couple of New Year cards to show you today.  My images are from Create with TLC, Paulette has an absolute wealth of images on her blog, many are free and some are available for purchase or a small donation.  Here is "Joyous New Year" and "Time Flies Clock" with "Goodbye 2011":

I wish you and yours a very Happy New Year, thanks for visiting!  I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support.

Wow, Marsha, back surgery is no picnic for the patient or the spouse, and a sick parent is a real worry too. Isn't it wonderful how stamping can be therapeutic! I just wanted to stop by and wish you and yours a Very Happy and Healthier New Year!!! I'll be thinking of you.

Oh Marsha, you have made these images sing.
You surely have had a 'character building' time with family concerns. May God give you the strength to continue.
