Blowing Bubbles for New Years!

Hello and Happy New Years!

As many of you will be drinking the bubbly, I will be blowing the bubbly with my husband and son, lol.  It's a fun life.  I will be tired from staying up til midnight (which is why I prescheduled this post, lol) but not hung over in the least, lol.  The older I get, the more I appreciate the mornings where I don't feel like dying, lol.  I hope your New Year starts out fun and safe!

This is the start of a New Year and our very first Challenge for 2013 at Loves Rubberstamps is - Anything Goes!  I would like to thank our sponsor - The Cutting Cafe!  So double the prizes!  Whoo Hooo, so fun.   I cannot wait to see your fabulous creations this week. 

For this card I used:

MFT''s P.I. blowing bubbles
Memento ink - Black Tuxedo
Best Glue Ever
CC Design Banner Topper cutter
6X6 design paper pad

What is your New Years Resolutions?  What do you hope to achieve in this coming year?  What are your design goals for your cards and scrapbooking?  My resolution is to finish my 26 Random Acts of Kindness. I hope to achieve all of my DT commitments this year.  My goals for card making are to broaden some of my coloring skills.  My goals for scrap booking is just to DO IT, lol.  And this week I hope to get a little more organized.  Not the Total overhaul, but just clear this desk and organize some dies. lol.  I'm keeping it simple, lol.

I cannot wait to see your uploads in the Challenge Blog and while you are at it, go see the New items in the store!  So fun!!!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!!!

Another cute card Holly! I'm ashamed to admit I bought this cutie when she was released, and she has yet to see ink! Yikes!
I'm not one for making resolutions, but it would be pretty awesome to get one of my cards published this year!;) Good luck with your goals! and Happy New Year! :)

Happy New Year, Holly. I'm like you. I was in the tub reading by 8PM last night, and in bed by 9!...don't even like the thought of going out on New Year's Eve!

I love this image and the way you colored it. As far as resolutions go, same old, same old...go on a diet and get back in shape physically. I never even thought about resolutions dealing with cards, so I guess I better make trying harder to tell all the cardmakers (like you) who inspire me every day how much their creations make me want to be a better cardmaker.

This is absolutely adorable! My crafty resolutions are to 1) Find my crafting desk 2) Try and keep my crafting desk halfway cleaned off so I can work in bigger than a 6" x 6" space, 3) Do a better job at making it around to the Design team members blogs so they know how much I appreciate all that they do (LIKE YOU - SO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART - YOU ARE AWESOME) 4) Get my Own Stamp Line Going 5) Keep Loves Rubberstamps expanding and growing ... I will start with those :) Happy New Year!
