As the title says--I'm going to try to begin anew with blogging. The holidays hit us with a bang this year. I had projects planned for gifts and I did accomplish those, but did not get pictures taken to post here. Then began the New Year with an unexpected family party which turned out fun in the end. My Mom has some health issues, but those seem to be smoothing out some, for 84 she's doing pretty good. In the midst of all these things I have been making a few cards and I do follow quite a few blogs. I think I'm ready to start playing along with some of the challenges I've been seeing. I've made a pretty neat Mother's Day card for my MNL and saw a challenge on The Pink Elephant blog that I'm going to attempt to link to. All this said----here goes!
