New Year's Resolution

I think I should try harder!
How many times did I have that said about me during my school day I wonder... probably more than was good for me... but now I really think that I should try harder to join in with more challenges.#
Since the advent of "Less is More", I seem to have spent progressively less time on other challenges and I really think that I should remedy that.
Here goes with my first for 2013
Here is the sketch for Retro Sketches #44
I chose an odd piece of kraft card which was lurking in a drawer together with a piece of Pink Petticoat paper, printed long ago. (Another resolution is to try to use more of my  accumulated stash)
The small section was embossed with what I think is a Cuttlebug border EF and stitched with real stitching... there's another resolution... with my new desk I now have room for my sewing machine in my craft room, so I have no excuse not to use it.
The sentiment is Stampin' Up mounted on a Sizzix Framelit diecut.
Job Done!

  2. I know what you mean Chrissie - I lost it completely about challenges by mid December last year! Lucky you having your sewing machine at the ready and the stitching looks great.

  3. Love it Chrissie - fabulous CAS card.

    I hope you have a great weekend.
