SDC 45 Your wish for the New Year

Settling in after all that food?  He he he....The Stampotique designers' challenge this time is asking you to tell us your wish for the New Year thanks to Nellie who is hosting!  Create something with your Stampotique stamps and show us your thoughts for 2012.   :)  My wish is to get in some serious art journaling!  LOVE all that you can do with an art journal and my art group here is focusing on a technique book .  It is my hope to try it all!  I am really blessed to be on a dt (Stampotique) where there are several really talented gals making some very cool pages.  Below I made my 6 x 6 page with some sponged distress inks, sequin waste and a punched snowflake used as a stencil.   Last I stamped "heads" #6097 (one of my favorites) from artist Daniel Torrente available at Stampotique  Simple! The sentiment is one I love and I thought appropriate.  On the back of my page will go the details and at my group we will swap pages each month. 
Wishing you all many blessings in 2012 and MUCH creativity!  TFL and show us your creation with Stampotique stamps for a chance at a $30.00 gift from the Stampotique store.

Christmas and a birthday

Gosh I love this image!  It reminds me so much of childhood Christmas.  I grew up Catholic with a holy water font by the light switches in the bedrooms of our house.  For some reason this pic reminds me of that.  There always seemed to be angels on them. :)

"Bad me" cuz I can not remember where I got this image - but it was probubly Graphic fairy?  It has been a while tho. Challenges I am in for? :  Raise the Bar= beginning to look like Christmas, Paper take weekly= anything goes with a "dangly" object (bell), Creative Belli= winter and Christmas+ old emb (image, bell), Hiding in my craft room=use scraps (Stella Rose scraps of dp here).
Next just sharing a card of my dd (child no 3of 4)  when she was 3yrs  blowing out candles on her cake....she is 27 today and getting married this New Years eve :)   Time flys! When it is one of my kids birthdays I like to make them a card using an old photo of them.   I used this VERY cool dp from DCWV called "the Colorful Life stack"..the artwork on the dp is from Donna Estabrooks and I LOVE her style...looks like cool art journal book paper with some glitter. 
TFL and have a great week! :)
