FFFC4,LSC201 With Graditute


Happy New Year and TGIF!!!

I can't believe a new year has started.....boy oh boy time flies by fast!!! I don't know about you, but I totally failed on my last years resolution - I wanted to lose 30 pounds....well, I was somewhat good and had lost 17 pounds, but as the girls started *Summer Break*.....these hard lost pounds creeped right back on...at least 12 of them - LOL!!!

Well, another year another try - I have no idea where my willpower has gone....LOL??? Has anyone seen it??? Please give it back to me.....I really need it - LOL!!!

Hope your resolutions for this new year will come true!!! I keep my fingers crossed for you and me!!!

Anyhow - my card is for the LSC201 - *My Favorite Things* and the *Flourishes Friday Challenge* - FFFC4 - use something *NEW TO YOU*.

I must have been a really good girl this past year....Santa has brought me a whole bunch of new goodies!!! I love Santa - he's the best - he,he,he!!!!

I used my brand spankin' new Papertrey Ink CS *Raspberry Fizz* plus Ribbon!!! I also received a new box of the SU *Pretties Kit* - I love those hat pins and had to use a new one on my card!!!
The base of my card is Pink Pirouette CS. I inked the large sentiment image from the *Thank You* Set in Pink Pirouette. Next I created the scalloped edge with the SU Punch. The flower was inked in *Raspberry Fizz* - I colored the inside with the Ink using a Blender Pen - and the stem was inked in *Kiwi Kiss*. The sentiment is from the same *Thank You* Set and was inked in Versamark then I embossed it with some White EP. Next I tore the right side of the Whisper White CS and distressed the other corners. The flower image was layered onto Kiwi Kiss CS and raised with Stampin Dimensionals. ~TFL~

Check out the cards my Flourishes Friends have made - Becca Feeken, Betty Wright, Christine Okken, Cindy Haffner, Dee Jackson, Kimberly Crawford.
