Not a Girly-girl...

So How was your New Years?

Sad to say we were in bed before
midnight.  But we really did try to stay up
this year we made it till almost 11:00..

I remember the good old days when I would
have big plans for a night out on the town..
(Vegas is perfect place to party for New Years, even 25 years ago)
   And not even start to get ready
till 8:00 and party the night away!

Sad to say I don't miss those days at all!



I just love this quote,
It's from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I think it is a great quote to think about
as we start off this New Year.

It is Tuesday so that means it's time
for another challenge over at
City Crafter Challenge Blog.

Cheryl is our hostess and the theme
this week is "Save the Date"



I had so much fun with this image.
My copic coloring isn't as great as some of you,
but I gave it my best shot..



Truth be told I don't even own a pair of heels..
I guess you can say I am really not a girly-girl.
Just give me my Chucks and I am one 
happy gal!



So if you want to play along with us this week
you can get all the details
over at CCCB.
You might get a chance to win
some Digi Stamps from Bugaboo!
That's were I got this digi stamp from!

Well I better get off this computer
I still have to take down my Christmas decorations.
How sad is that.  I am off my game this year!

Have fun my friends.
till next time,

Hugs, Linda

Adorable card and she makes me want to go shopping! We made it to 12:00 and then some! WooHoo for us oldies, but goodies! Actully we went out with friends and I have to tell you, it was fun! Most years we are asleep by 11:00 as we get up so darn early! This is on the 2nd time I have gone out on NYE, but in the younger days, would stay up and make an array of snacks! Have a great Tuesday! Hugs!

Happy New Year, Linda! I didn't see the year dawn at midnight, either... was sound asleep, LOL! And while I also prefer sneakers to high heels, I love your card! I need to shop, tee hee!

I own heels but do I wear them....NO!! What a fun card for this week's challenge. PS I still have my Christmas stuff up too.

S. Etole said...

Enjoyed the card, and truth be told, I was just this afternoon putting away Christmas decorations and still have a ways to go.

Virginia L. said...

Thanks for sharing the quote from Goethe. did you know I major in German in college? I went to visit his birthplace in Frankfurt back in the late 80s...then hubby got his finger hurt at Goethe's house with the door!!! --LOL, kind of freaky when I think about it )!! Nevertheless, I love Gothe! Your card with the copic coloring is DARLING! I love bright colors! Happy New Year to you, my friend! xoxo

Colleen Dietrich said...

Hi Linda! Happy New Year! I think you did a great job coloring this lady who shopped for shoes. (I don't own heels anymore; once bunions came along, heels went out the door!)

We put away half our decorations, but are keeping up anything snowman related. That seems like good decor for a cold season!

Mona L. Pendleton said...

What a fun card Linda! I love to shop for shoes and when I find a good pair, I buy several different colors!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

This is GORGEOUS! I loveeeeeeeeeee the colors you used and loving the Prima paper you used in the background! :):):):):):):):):):):)

Gillian Olson said...

Great project, but then anything with brightly coloured shoes is great in my book.

Davi said...

Linda, love those Bugaboos! You did a great job coloring and so fun with the little floral print! Have a great week :)

Becca said...

Cute card! I like that she is wearing "readers" :-)
Cute shoes too! I can't wear high heels and be comfortable like I used to...AND you couldn't pay me enough to wear heels and walk around Caesars anymore either! LOL I'm addicted to my UGGS now anyway. :-) Hope you had a good day!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Change and refresh or I guess we go stale. It's good to move on, being grateful for what has been.

Gave away my heeled shoes when we married, they made me taller than DH. Bare feet is my preference mostly.

Catherine said...

I was sleeping shortly after 9 pm on New Years Eve. I am one wild and crazy woman huh?

Cute card Linda!

xo Catherine

papertrails leaver said...

I had to LOL Linda about the New Year's 25 years ago. I am pretty much the same way but this year hubby and I made plans so stayed up til after 1 AM! Your shopping date card is cute as can be! A shopping date sounds like a great idea about now! :-) Amy

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

What a wonderful quote, Linda. I'll have to write it down and remember it. LOVE LOVE the card. You should work for Hallmark ... Beautiful, my dear, beautiful.

Tracy said...

Those Bugaboo images are always so cute and I think you did a wonderful coloring job. :-) Totally cute card for the challenge. Hugs!

Simone said...

What a great quote Linda! So true. I had to laugh at your managing to stay up until 11. I was exactly the same! These days I would trade a night of dancing for a good sleep any night! xx

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Janna Werner said...

Hey Linda!! We didn't do anything great as well, watched a bit tv, had some nice food. I don't like all the noise on Dec 31st, never did.
But I do like your card :) It really is a fun image.
Have a lovely day,
Janna

missing moments said...

Cute card ... running shoes for me!

Kamana said...

i go for comfy, rather than glam or heels when it comes to shoes ... and usually clothes too. and i find that i am less and less bothered by staying up for the moment of the midnight strike, as each year passes.

Lynn Stevens said...

We watched the ball drop on T.V. then hit the bed! LOL. I remember those party all night days too. Don't miss them either.

Sweet card. I'm a uggs kinda gal in the winter. had to wear my boots to work yesterday and my feet hurt! LOl
Hugs Lynn

Suzanne C said...

In bed before 11 too! I had a laugh about the going out at 8! I had forgotten about those days. Love your fun card! Wonderful coloring!

Audrey Pettit said...

What a fun card, Linda! That image just makes me smile. Perfect sentiment, too. LOVE all the layering. And the pop of black is fabulous. :)
