I am sitting around counting the minutes until my friend comes over to stamp for the night, and I thought "It's about time I gave something back to all of the fabulous people who come visit my blog! And this just happens to be my 60th entry so what better time?

I am offering 10 x 1 meter each of various Stamping Up Ribbons to the lucky winner. What you have to do is leave me a comment to tell me what your New Year Resolution is. I love hearing peoples resolutions, they can be so inspiring!
I will draw & email the random winner on Sunday 11th January.

I have 2 resolutions for the new year. The first one is to try and be a little bit more confident in new situations, and be better at "small talk" with people I don't know very well. The other, comes from discussing our resolutions on NYE and my very dear friend Sarah pointed out that perhaps I am a little bit to critical of myself, so this year I am going to try to be kind to me! Not easy, but I will try, and now I have posted it, I have to do it huh?

Anyway, good luck for the blog candy, I cant wait to hear all of your resolutions!

My new year's resolution is to not make one! LOL - My DH tells me that I too need to be kinder to myself, and I would like to be slightly more 'organised' this year *groan* LOL. Let's see how that goes!

Hi Leonie,
I picked a resolution I knew I would keep for a change - my aim is to try and check out new blogs regularly - and not just page 1!! I tend to stick to my faves as time gets so short. Have just gone through several pages of yours - it's GREAT - have HAD to add youto my faves list - LOL. Take care and Happy New Year!

My NYR is to do a better job this year than last year! I won't explain. You do not need to send ribbon if I win, I live too far. However, I wish to tell you that you must be too critical of yourself. You have two lovely daughters, you have a wonderful way about you, sharing with so many people every where. I was drawn to your blog because you are so friendly. I think it is really a woman thing to be critical and hesitant in new situations. Keep smiling, you have a lot of years to catch up with some of the rest of us.

Hey Leo,

It has taken me quite a while to think about what my NYR is but I have decided that it is to eat healthy. Not diet. Focus on the healthy food and not the scales.

When I ask my DH he stated that it should be to give my husband everything he needs. Surprise, surprise. I think I like mine better.

Hi Leonie
I discovered your blog via Kristina's colour challenge and like your card so I have viewed your blog, you have some fantastic cards. Don't know if I qualify for your blog candy, but my resolution was to find more quality time for me (so that includes card making/scrapbooking).
