Best Wishes for 2010 and my first card for the New Year

Happy 2010 to everyone reading...I would like to wish you happiness and good fortune for the new year. 2010 will be a big change for me as we pack up and move to the country. I have left my job here on the Gold Coast and am going to work part-time for six months in a country primary school with about 50 kids in the whole school! A big change from my last school of about 1000. We have begun the packing and organising today and leave next Wednesday the 13th of January.

I must admit I have really lacked motivation to get back into my crafting since Christmas. I am not sure if I just needed a break, whether I made so much leading up to Christmas, or the fact that I havent bought any new items that could entice me back into it...Anyway this is a birthday card for my Father-in-law. It is late for his birthday, as it was New Year's Day, but I had to focus and get it made asap. He is a very keen fisherman and so I purchased this image from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop especially for this card. This is my first Mo image and I am amazed at how detailed they are. I used all SU card stock and DP. Main colours are Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Bashful Blue and Bordering Blue. I am entering the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Anything Goes

Charisma Cardz Challenges - Celebrations

Stamp Something - New Somethings (Digi Image)

Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Family

Allsorts Challenge - Sketch and New or Old

I hope this kick-starts me back into the crafting for the next week or so, before I have to pack up my whole craft room and move it interstate. Hopefully I will have some more interesting posts for you to read soon...Until then, take care and thanks for visiting.
