New Years Goals and Miss Anya Lounge Silliness

I think I'm starting to notice a New Years post always have a valentine card in them, lol.  During the holidays, I spent some time with Sandy, Suzanne, and Yvonne.  I decided to color images to match this Bo Bunny Crush paper and being the silly bunch we are, we decided to take goofy pictures of my images with googly eyes. 

I'm not really quite sure why Suzanne added the beaver too, but it just cracks me up.  Don't worry, we didn't actually glue them on.  Here is my 'real' card with a normal Anya, lol.  I also used Mojo Monday #171 for this.

Paper:  Bo Bunny Crush
Stamps: TGF, sentiment is PTI
Copics, Pearls, Rhinestones, CTMH Ribbon, Prima Flowers, and Crystal Stickles

Once again, a new year and new goals!  I've set goals every year, but last year was the first year I actually tracked them every month.  By doing that, I've had the most successful goal achieving year, so this will be something I will continue to do in 2011.  I honestly thought opening Sparkle Creations was gonna be the only thing I could cross off for 2010, lol. 

This year I decided to separate my goals into different categories.  I know to some I may be trying to over-achieve, but I tend to do better with more aspiration.  In the end, I'm always okay if I at least hit a couple in each category.
