New year's resolutions

Wow, it was a busy week last week at the Christmas market where I was selling my cards. It was my first time selling my cards to other than my mum & grandma,  so a bit nervious to start with, but had a lot of fun in the end. I hope the cards will bring lots of joy and smiles to the people who they are sent to. Must say that the AI stamped cards are a great way to give people a smile.

The photo was taken on the first day, you can see how nervious I was :D

But then to this week's challenge!

I used to make them too, new year's resolutions. Then I understood that I rarely kept them and stopped making them. Maybe they were the wrong kind of resolutions? One should only make them like "I allow myself eat as much chocolate as I want" or "I can buy as many new stamps as I want this year". No problem keeping those!

The card I made for this week's Art Impressions challenge is going to be sent to a good friend of mine to wish her happy new years, and I am sure she'll get the joke. The stamps are of two different characters, but I think they work as one and same person when coloured the same.

As always, I coloured my stamped images with Distress Inks and markers. I tried some hand lettering for the sign, something I think I will be practicing more this Christmas time..

Stamp: Art Impressions Sylvia
Clock: KaiserCraft collectables
Die: Sizzix & Die-namics

 Stamp: Art Impressions Madge
Background paper BoBunny
Die: Spellbinders

I submit the card to the Art Impressions Challenge #174. Check out also the new AI stamps (which would have been fun to have for this challenge) and the awesome cards by the DT!

It's the last AI challenge this year, so I wish all of AI team and followers a joyful holiday and happy new years! I look forward to see you next year.
