February Resolution

New Year's Resolutions? What? I've never been good at those. Since this is my first post of 2012, I could write about how I'm going to post more (and I mean to, really), but I also tell myself I'm going to do my bookkeeping every month, and I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen.

I don't often view the new year as the time to make a fresh start. I believe you should take the opportunity to improve yourself, your life, your situation, your anything...when the time is right. If that's January 1, good for you! If it's February, great! If it's June, go for it! So, I'm not writing that I'm going to post more as a new year's resolution. But, I will tell you I'm going to do better because I want to post more. I want to share more cards, crafts and scrapbook pages here, which means I have to spend more time being crafty in my craft room. So, here's to it!

This is a Valentine card I made for several family members this year. As an English major and PR professional, I love writing. I'm sure glad we don't use manual typewriters anymore, but I love the nostalgia of the typewriter. This set, "You're Just My Type," went on my "must purchase" list right away. I used black embossing powder with VersaMark ink to add texture and shine to the typewriter. The sprinkled hearts are from the "Confetti" set in the Idea Book & Catalog. I colored Basic Jewels - Rhinestones with a red Bic permanent marker. How cool is that?

Paper colors used are Pink Pirouette, Real Red, Very Vanilla. Classic ink in Real Red.

So, this is my first post in 2012. I'm back on the wagon! What are your February resolutions?
