Did you make any New Year Resolutions? I did make a couple .. and they are
- to let go (from past hangups, clutter, bad friendships and bad habits)
- to exercise and eat well (we already eat quite healthy food but I have let myself down on the exercise front. I want to teach good habits to my 2.5 year old daughter so leading by example it must be)
I know these are fairly common resolutions but they really are so important and I'm at the point that I finally realise that. So no more excuses! Hmmmmmm maybe I need some helpful reminders ....... like .......
I have used this gorgeous image from Bugaboo Stamps called Critter Balloons - Elephant. I coloured it in copic markers and then on the balloon I used glossy accents to give it some shine. I stuck it down on my backing card using double sided foam tape.
The Die I used for the base is a rectangular die from Marianne Desgins. I used some light blue copic on it to make the 'sky' and then layed a blue piece of card on the back to show through the holes.
Finally I stuck an old magnet onto the back ... ta daaaaaa a fridge magnet. This is getting stuck on my fridge on New Years Day .... it will be there every day looking at me. To me it says "if you want to be lighter than an elephant then do something about it". he he he.
