Another year begins (almost).

Hello all!
Well, we're almost at the end of 2013 and I'm convinced this year was a lot shorter then usual - how else can you explain the speed at which it shot by?  Anyway, we have our second to last challenge of the year over at The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT and our theme is "Happy New Year".
                        We are being sponsored by Time for Tea Designs and we all chose to use the same image for our cards this week - "New Year's resolutions".  Please take a minute to check out the rest of the DT's work as we all have very different styles and it's interesting to see what we all created with the same image!
         I fussy cut my Copic coloured image and placed her on a background that I had precut using my Cameo.  I cut the text from white cardstock and then used the negative space over a purple background - I know I could have cut purple letters and put them on white cardstock but I find it easier to do it this way as all the words are straight.  When it comes to sticking down individual letters I sometimes get a little crooked!   Some washi tape and a ticket from my stash, a simple flower and a stamped sentiment finished the card off.

      I would like to enter this into the challenges at Through the Craftroom Door , Oozak , Colour Me Creative , Digi Galore 

Thanks for popping in!

What a terrific theme this week, and of course this image is equally terrific. I'll pop over and take a peek, it will be fun to see all the different creations using the same image. Your card is super as usual, and I like the sentiment and top header in particular....I totally agree with you too about the speed of which this year flew by. My goodness, I can hear my Mum saying to me many many years ago; "Sandra, don't rush your life, when you get to be my age the years will fly by so fast and you will want to slow everything down". Mum's are so wise aren't' they?

It is hard to believe that 2013 is almost over. Wishing you and your hubby a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Love your card Dawn, love the design and it will be a great birthday card. Beautiful coloring.

Honestly, Dawn, I think that the earth must be rotating faster around the sun. That's the only explanation I have for how fast time is going. (It certainly can't be the fact that I am ancient and everything now moves too fast for me.)
You are so right--we all used the same image in completely different ways. I love when that happens. :^)
This card is so YOU! Wonderful, artistic CAS card with fabulous coloring! Love your tape and sentiment ticket! And your negative/positive die-cut text is such a cool idea! Love it! :^)
Wishing you and hubby the most wonderful, Merry Christmas!
Great big hugs, Penny
