2014 has Arrived!!

Well another year has passed & we have all grown a year older & wiser - well I think I have :-) 2014 I am hoping will be a turning point in my life. My youngest is almost an adult, my husband & I are reaching a milestone in our marriage & my business is at a tipping point. I just hope this year fulfills at least some of the dreams that I have.

Now enough of that. I have made a card!! January is always a busy time for me & birthdays, my own included. I have 8 I think in January & they start next week. So here is the 1st. My friend's lad turns 24 next week & I decided I could no longer get away with football cards so decided to go in a totally different direction.
The image I have used is called Take A Break & is by Di's Digi Designs & I have coloured him in using Promarkers.

I have followed the sketch from Sketch N Stash. The papers are by We R Memory Keepers & I have had to get this pack shipped over from Australia as it doesn't seem to be available in the UK anymore :-( The gems, rub ons & ribbon are all from my stash. The punch is EKSuccess.

 I have decided to try something new on the inside of cards & will see how it works out. I am still using the sketch on the inside but have also added a smaller version of the main image. x Clare x
