flower child

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I cant believe we are starting 2012. I am not one to make resolutions but I do set some goals for myself. For 2012 my goals are centered around my passions, which would be my family and my crafting.

For my family, I don't want to put off until another day what you can do today. You may not have another chance.
For my crafting, I want to venture to try new techniques and think out of the box. I think that will expand me as a paper artist.

Last night (New Year's eve) we spent with my son-daughter-in-law and grandsons. We had dinner to celebrate my hubby's birthday and then spent the night playing games. We watched the ball fall in Times Square on TV and then headed to bed after that.

My daughter-in-law made a great breakfast for us this morning and we just lounged around in our pj's. Headed home around 3:00 to watch the Steeler game (we won) and now I am just relaxing and typing this post.

The card I am showing today is one I made for the sketch  challenge at the "my favorite stamps" forum on splitcoaststampers.

I used the Pure Innocence image "being cute is what I do". I colored her with a combination of copic markers and prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

My designer paper is from the BoBunny collection "flower child". On the center vertical panel, I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "just my type". I sponged daffodil delight ink on the embossing to make it pop.

I used a button, a spellbinder pennant die and a border punch to complete my card. That's it for me today so until next time.........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1Paper Sundaes blog wants us to use something old something new. My designer paper and button are old and the pennant die from Spellbinders is new.
2.  Pile It On blog has an anything goes challenge.
3.  Secret Crafter Saturday challenge has an anything goes.
4.  Totally Gorjuss wants to see something happy.
