Random Amusing Challenge 98

It's the first Monday of 2011 and I hope you are enjoying it. It is our last lazy day here before my hubby heads back to work and I dive back into the job hunt full force. We had a great relaxing holiday season with lots of food, friends, family and festivities. Even got some walks in the sunshine!

Welcome to the first challenge of 2o11. In this season of "Top Ten" lists and countdowns, I decided to incorporate numbers into this week's challenge. Make a project inspired by and/or incorporating numbers. You could use number stamps/sticker/rub-ons, patterned paper with numbers or just play with numbers, like I did. On my card I have used 1 stamp, 2 words, 3 buttons, 4 layers of paper and 5 pearls. If you upload a card to an online gallery, please use the keyword GRAC98. If you play, please leave a comment here and a link from your post back to here. Thanks to Sonja for playing along last week.

My 100th challenge is coming up in two weeks and I have something very special planned so be sure to stop back. Also, be sure to keep an eye on my new pages for upcoming classes, stamps I will be selling as well as some recommendations for food, books and music.

If you've been following along, you'll know I posted some musings about my less than perfect 2010 in my Saying Hello to 2011 post on Saturday (1:11 on 1/1/11 - hee hee). I was so surprised how many lovely comments I got. Thanks to everyone for their encouraging and supportive words. I really appreciate it.... shows me what fabulous people stop by my blog.

I'm not a huge hockey fan but I must cheer when Canada is playing in international competition. Right now, Canada is playing the U.S in the semi-final of IIHF World Junior Championships. The U.S. beat us last year so crossing my fingers (and everything else) for a victory this year. GO CANADA!

Hope you have a great week and a spectacular 2011!
