Happy New Year!!!

Did everyone have a Happy New Year? I had a nice quiet one. Made a nice dinner for DH and myself and ate after the kids went to bed which was nice.

What is your resolution this year? I never really make one because come on we all know it NEVER works! Eat better, exercise blah blah blah.... However the new year is a good time to reflect on things you've accomplished and what you might want to accomplish in the new year.

What's on your list? Do you have stamping goals? I want to submit a few things for publication and I would love an opportunity for DT. I did get picked last year for Starving Artistamps Guest DT, which is fabulous. I can't wait till my turn comes around. I will also continue to participate in challenges. But most of all have FUN. Stamping is a great way to meet new people while doing something you really love. There is so much to learn and my next adventure will be using the Copic markers. Did I mention I joined the Copic Marker club over at Gina K? Very cool way to start a collection, 6 markers a month for 6 months until a set is complete! I hope I can do well with them, any advice is greatly appreciated.

My post today is an Easter card, come on think Spring! :) This great little kitty is from Serendipity Stamps. I really love their images, check it out! It's a pretty simple layout but I just loved the background paper so I decided to keep it simple. I used markers to color and stickles to add the glitter. I'm trying to get better photos as well. I think my problem is I end up doing most of my stuff at night after the kiddies go to sleep, so I don't have the natural day light. Anyhow, maybe I will change that up a bit.
