New Years Resolutions.....

It may only be December 1st, but 2011 is really just around the corner! And, like the millions that will look at January 1 and make some wishes for the new year, the Impression Obsession Design Team is putting some of their ideas... on paper in the form of a challenge!

You can read all about the December 2nd challenge HERE. The goal is to make a card based on your New Years Resolutions. Use IO stamps and you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store!

On to my creation! You might look at my card and say... Hhhhmmm? Well... this image is really at the heart of what I want for 2011 -- to keep in better touch with those I love. Life is too short... you know?
This stamp is part of a set called Letters Mingle Souls. After stamping on white, I colored it up with Copic Markers (RV32, RV34, Y21, Y23, YG63, G40, V01, V04, E25, E31, C01, C03 and B000 to highlight around my letter). Mat it up with some decorative paper (Kaiser Craft), some fun ribbon (May Arts), crocheted lace, and some decorative stitching and.. done!

Here's a close up...

And that, my friends, is it! What are some of your New Year's Resolutions? Do you have any unusual ones that you might like to share? Just leave me a little note, I'd love to hear! Make sure to stop by and see some of the other IO gals and what kind of goals they have for the new year!
