Sparkle Creations Challenge #70: Anything New Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone! It seems forever since I last posted! I have been taking it easy behind the scene, not much papercrafting going on. I used my Copics for the first time in a few weeks. I almost forgot how to color!

We at Sparkle Creations are back from our little winter break and are ready for a brand new challenge! For the next two weeks, we have a Anything New Challenge. Easy peasy, right?

I am still pretty much in the Holiday mode so I decided to get a head start with my 2012 Christmas cards! Yup, this is my first Christmas card for the year! Yay for me! hehe Actually, I am running low on Holiday cards so I thought I better get started since I don't craft as much these days.

I used pretty much everyone old on this card, except for the jingle bell charm. For the new year, I do have a resolution and shall get to that later.

For my card today, I used Christmas Tree Ruby. Oh, did I mention she is currently on sale? I used Basic Grey Jovial papers. Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink.

Sparkle Creations is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketch this week.I followed the sketch for my card. For an additional chance at winning a Sparkle Creations stamp, please along Tuesday Morning Sketch!

My PC is acting up so no signature for my pictures. Also, the SD card I normally use is corrupted! I have pictures of my kiddies there. I hope hubby stored those away previously.

I haven't really thought of my new year resolution. They are basically the usual stuff I need to work on.

1. Be more organized. My craft desk has been a mess all these years! Even my 4-year-old son as me why my desk is so messy! LOL

2. Limit purchases on crafty items. I have to admit, I am a shopaholic ( not sure on the spelling)! I always buy more than I need, more than necessary. My hubby always say I could open my own craft store with what I have!

3. Work on more stuff for my Etsy store. I actually neglected it for the last few months! Yikes!

This post is getting long. I know you guys are getting tired already. LOL More to come when I post the next time!
