Happy New Year PPA 184 and SUO # 86

December, 23, 2013

I have been super busy the last few days.  We celebrated Christmas over the weekend with part of our family!  It was so much fun to watch Natalie open her gifts and help Luke open his.  The wonder of Christmas is always more fun with little ones around!  My Mom arrived last evening to stay with me for about 10 days.  It is always so special to have time with her.  At 85, she amazes me every day!

I wanted to enter the Pals Paper Arts Challenge and the Stampin' Up Only Challenge this week.  With such a limited amount of time in my craft room,  I am making this card for both challenges.    I received a Christmas card yesterday (they moved and I was waiting for their new address) and  needed a New Year's card to send back.  I hope you enjoy my take on the challenges!
