Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year! Thanks for your visit today:)

My first card of 2011! Last year I did not have enough time to devote to my passion for paper, because I have a lot of other activities. This year I hope to spend more time with my wonderful hobby. The issue is where to get the time: fewer hours to the family? or working hours? or sleeping hours? I would love to know how do you do with this lack of time. Nevertheless it is one of my New Year’s resolutions:)

I made this card with the Mojo Monday Sketch with a new drawing I did recently and I will take the opportunity to enter it in other challenges.

Card supplies:
Image © of EdithDesigns (me!), Bazzill cardstock, German metallic cardstock, miscellaneous designer paper, Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder, Duncan Snow Glitter paint, New Collection pink rhinestones, brown thread and my sewing machine.

Hi Edith, it's lovely to see you and happy new year.
Your image is gorgeous and the sketch works perfectly for you (I had bookmarked it too as a possibility to use this week).
Time??? I often stay up till 1.00 in the morning - but I am not working full time now so that gives me more flexibility and freedom.
Best wishes for 2011.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Ohh and forgot to answer your question. I try and juggle my time. I try and get most things done over the week i.e housework, shopping etc so I can at least spend a full day crafting. Doesn't always go according to plan... lol.

Hugs Tamara

Pretty card! Looks so wintry. Our snow has melted, but I have a feeling we'll see more this year, even in SC!

Happy New Year lovely card beautiful scene. Time non of us ever have enough I'll often craft into the evening rather than watch the nothing that is on TV and aim to get chores done so that the week-ends are play time! Pretty much what we all do really LOL. Thank you for sharing with us at Lots to do XOXO Zoe
