  7. I think the most fun thing I could do this year would be to travel to Arkansas first to visit with the grandkids we don't see frequently. After Arkansas like Misti we'd need to continue our trip to Colorado (Pueblo West) and visit another set of grandkids.

  28. Happy New Year, Lee!! What a great array of faves from the past year you have. I love the covered buttons on the "pink" fishing card and the winter scene from Gina's set is soooo cute.

    FUN for me this year will be grabbing as much stamping time as I can possibly get and finding a way to meet up with several of my StampTV friends. (THAT would be the ultimate fun event of 2011). Thanks for the blog candy FUN.

  51. My fun thing is taking a road trip with 2 of my grandkids to meet up with and visit 4 other grandkids! We'll be traveling from southern California to Eastern Montana. Age range of all the grandkids is 5to 14 years. What fun it's going to be! Can't wait for June.

  54. I would really love to have a make-over but I don't see that happening my second hope for 2011 is to actually do some card-making at least once a week - that would make me very happy.

  55. Great cards! Something fun--spend more time with my grandkids--we always have a lot of fun together.

  56. We're hoping to travel from California back to the east coast with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandsons when they come back to the east coast. We live in NJ so we'd fly out and then drive cross-country with them!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Fun post, Lee. So many have mentioned traveling but I do not find that fun. I live in such a beautiful area of the nation - my idea of fun is driving to the bay (1/2 hour) to walk along the beach, or up into the hills (1/2 hour) to have a picnic at a lake. Hopefully my husband will be home enough this summer so we can do those things together. That's the catch.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Lovely cards. I especially like the one with the snowman. Very cute.
    As for fun stuff for 2011, there is nothing more fun than spending time with my family. I hope to do more camping (Grand Canyon, maybe?... finally). I also intend to spend more time crafting.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I want to take my kids to Alaska this year - back-up is the Grand Canyon if Alaska is too muvh $$.
    :) Hugs!!!

  60. Something fun I would LIKE to do?? Take the intermediate Copic class, or go to Pennsylvania for a stamping weekend, or go to the mountains for a stamping retreat....

    Something fun that might be more realistic? Go "home" to see a football game this fall. :-)

  61. I would like to

  63. Great cards! I always enjoy visiting your blog and seeing your wonderful creations. There are a lot of fun things I'm hoping to do this year; take a photography class, take an Adobe Photoshop class-so I can use the great software my DH got me for Christmas, take a zumba class, go on a family trip anywhere and start scrapbooking are some of the fun things I hope to do.
