true friend thank you...

I hope your first day of 2009 was great!
I have set a few goals for myself this year (I don't do resolutions)...thought I would post them here, so I can look back at them:
1. Get back on track with my exercising (went to pot planning the wedding in October)
2. Challenge myself with my photography and keep learning my camera.
3. Try to send out (at least) one card every week (for encouragement, thanks or just because).
4. Organize (which I love to do...I am weird I know!).
I have seen this card sketch on SCS several times and decided to give it a try (I am trying to use my patterned paper I can buy more, lol!). I used the Designer Series Paper from SU! Wintergreen (which I loved! it is retired now). I was pretty happy with the final outcome, so I am sure you will see this sketch again *wink*.
Okay...I am off to do some of that organizing (#4). Thanks for visiting!
Enjoy today!!!
Supplies used (SU! unless noted): True Friend stamp set; Always Artichoke/Soft Sky/Certainly Celery cardstock; Always Artichoke ink; Soft Sky double stitched ribbon; Scallop/Square punches; Wintergreen designer paper

I love this card. You have inspired me. Can you send me the dimensions? I take FOREVER trying to figure them out and waste a lot of paper.
