2012: My Word is OPEN

If you had to choose one word that would be your focus for the whole year, what would it be?
Me?  I have named my years for the last, I don’t know, ten years.  Like "2011 is the year of Organization", etc.  This year I decided to pick one word that would be my focus for the year 2012.  It's the word that I will live with everyday, using it to better myself, my environment and my perspective.  It will empower me and guide me.  It will change me, for the better, I hope.
My word is OPEN.
2012 is the year I will OPEN my mind to new ideas; 
I will OPEN my heart to others;
I will OPEN my soul to my faith; 
I will OPEN my creativity to my muse; 
I will OPEN my door to new opportunities...
...well, you get the picture.
So today (on a small scale) I will open my blog to another New Year’s card.  You’ve heard the expression, “It’s not over ‘til the fat lady sings”?  Well, I took poetic license and am proclaiming Christmas to be officially over, because the fat man in red has the mike and looks like he is breaking out in song.

This image needs to be identified, as it is too cute to not know who designed it.  So if anyone out there knows the company which makes it, please let me know.  I inked him up at a crop a year or two ago but never found out which stamp it was and the crafter no longer comes to the crops.  So I am OPEN to getting this image ID'd please!

Now I need to clear off my craft table and open my mind to the possibility, no the probability, no the fact, that I go back to work tomorrow.  Sigh!  And just when I was having so much fun stamping and coloring and making cards...

I really like the Santa vintage image too, Pat. You really did a super job on him. I have one from you and I too would love to know the name. Keeping our fingers crossed. Have a great day!
