I don't think I will be able to post much this week...I start back to work tomorrow and will be going interstate for 3 out of the 5 days this week. :-(

So I had to make this card count for a few challenges...yes not 1, not 2...but actually 4!!
- Bearly-Mine Challenge # 1 - A Sketch for the new year
- Tickled Pink Stamp Challenge # 1 - Anything Goes
- Stamp Something January Challenge - Use a Digi; and
- Creative Craft Challenge - New Year Resolution. Which I should explain as I don't think you will get it just from the card - My Resolution is to achieve more confidence (or at least appear to have) when giving presentations at work!! Hence why I have named this card/post Confidence.

Card Specs
Stamp/Image: Tickled Pink Stamps - Lil Fashionette 80's Sookie
Colouring: Triart Markers
Card Stock: Bazzill Cardstock
Patterned Paper: DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl and My Mind's Eye It's My Party Stacks
Inks: Printer
Die Cuts: Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles and Sizzix Swirly Strip
Embellishments: Kaiser Gems, Decorative Pins, Kindy Glitz and 3D crystal lacquer.

I even used my edge distresser - don't know how many years this has gone unused.

Have a great week and Happy Crafting

  6. Your card is Awesome - I love that sketch, might check that one out myself!! Your Sookie looks so cool and I really love your papers too!! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at TPSC this week, hope we see you again next week:-)

  7. Fab card and resolution too. I use to think about what everyone in the room would be like if they were naked or sitting on the loo and me be the only one clothed when doing presentations that use to help with my confidence then I'd take a big deep breathe and for the length of the presentation just pretend I was somewhere I wanted to be or another person. Your card is fab and good luck with the challenges and hope to see you again.
