January SFYTT ~

Hello again!  I alluded to another resolution for 2012 the other day, and I’m here today to tell you what it is!  How exciting!  {snort} 
I’m a huge fan of sketches, they take most of the guess work out of card making for me.  One of my all time favorites is the monthly Sketch For You To Try over at i{heart}2stamp.  So my resolution is to make two cards a month with the sketch.  One can be whatever and one has to be a Christmas card.  I really enjoyed being on the Christmas Stampin’ All Year Long team last year because I was so well prepared for the holidays – well, that and I got to be on a team with a bunch of other fabulous ladies!  I want to be at least minimally prepared for the holidays this year, so I’m forcing my own little challenge!  Anywho, yesterday I sat down and colored up two images to use with the sketch.  Now all I have to do is make the Christmas one into a card, photograph it and blog it!  lol

Say hello to 60’s Willow from Tickled Pink Stamps.  Isn't’ she darling?!?  I chose some papers from the {new to me} My Minds Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party line for my color scheme.  The base is Cool Caribbean – I had to cut up my last full sheet!   :(  I added a cute little flower tag with ‘eat cake’ to make it more like a birthday card since the inside is stamped with a large HB sentiment.  
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you’re having a great week!  :o) lyss

I like! I need to play too with this sketch and I am with you on the whole Christmas thing - no last minute stuff this year.
Guess what I am doing this weekend??? Camping. Seriously :>) Winter camping with the Girl Scouts - hoping it is lots of fun and not too cold!
