Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! What an exciting year that just ended and I looking forward to an even better year in 2010. My card today is celebrating the new year. This is an image from Mo's Digital Pencil, isn't it just adorable? I have been admiring these images for the longest time, especially on Peggy's blog. They really are a lot of fun to color, which is one of my favorite things to do. After printing my image, I colored it with Copic markers. I used DCWV card stocks, the silver and purple came from the Metallic Stack. The stars came from Jo-Ann's. This card fits the challenge for this week on the Mo's Challenge Blog.

Does anyone make resolutions for the new year? Does anyone keep the resolutions that they make? I don't really do resolutions, I just try to set a goal and give myself the entire year to get it done! It's also normally a pretty open ended goal too so I am more likely to stick with it. One of my goals for the past year was to try and be a little more outgoing and I think I met that goal. Anyone that knows me in real life knows that I am a little on the shy, withdrawn side, but over the past year I have tried many new things and in a lot of different situations. I have gone to classes at different LSS, joined a couple of different cropping groups, took the Copic Certification class and applied for a design team. I have learned a lot, got my Copic Certification, met so many new friends and was selected to be on the design team for one of my favorite stamp companies, Shirley's 2 Girls. It was definitely a great year. Moving into the new year, I am going to continue it, and I have already scheduled to teach some Copic classes at my LSS. So here's to you as you try to reach your own goals or resolutions!

Love the card, I have one of Mo's images and it's wonderful!

I made a goal for myself last year to scrap at least one layout a week and I didn't do it. *Sigh* I am so happy/proud of your accomplishments and I hope 2010 is a good one!
