New Year's resolutions

Hello all,

I can't believe it has been so long since I last showed a sign of life here, but I'm back! I don't usually do new years resolutions (I will break them anyway so what is the point really), but I will try and at least blog once every week this new year. It might not sound like much, but since I haven't managed that yet, I think it will be a sufficient challenge for me! I can already see some troubled week ahead, as next weekend we will be visiting my parents to celebrate my  mum's birthday and the next we need to go a funeral in Scotland, but I will definately try!

So, for my first resolution post, I can show you a card I made tonight for the CDC Christmas Challenge (Punch out you embellisment). Now, I don't own many punches, so at first I was at a loss as to how to cope with this challenge, but as I saw that many DT members used ready-made sentiments, I thought I would use one as well (yes, it is punched, just not by me).

I used a gold base card, vellum backing paper, image and snowflakes from my stash and a sentiment from SEI Christmas Mint Accents. I've used some Stardust stickle around the sentiment. I hope you guys like it and that it fits with the challenge!

I am also submitting it to the following challenges:
*CES Challenge (All creatures Great & Small)
*Craft Your Days Away (Anything Goes)
*3D Card Challenge (Anything Goes)

See you next week!
