Papertrey Peeps Challenge and a Huge Thank You

I hope  the beginning of  2011 has been positive for you. I love the fresh feeling of a new year--the Christmas decorations are put away and the house feels lighter; there are plans,goals, and possibilities to meet.   I am feeling postive about this first week; we have  had two lovely snows, perfect for cozying inside. And I did work on some of my goals for the new year.  I made it to the fitness center for four classes this week, did some decluttering and organizing,  and even did a little crafting beginning with this card for the first Papertrey Peeps challenge of 2011, hosted by Rhonda who challenged us to make and send a Thank You Card.  You can check out the challenge and fellow Peeps by hitting the links on the right, and please join our challenge.
This card, using some of her favorite bold colors, is for fellow Peep Terri who keeps us organized by scheduling the challenges and hosts for our blogging group. She also keeps the Peeps Blog updated and recognizes our birthdays with gorgeous virtual cakes.
 I have so enjoyed meeting these ladies and being inspired their incredible creativity. I am looking forward to our challenges and visits this year.
So Terri,  a huge Thank You for all you do for the Peeps!
