The Life that is Waiting for Us.

I find myself all ready for Christmas with time to spend in my craft room!  So I checked out some of the weekly challenges and made this card:
I'm submitting it to the following challenges:
 CAS on Sunday -  Happy New Year

Dynamic Duos I even got the 'sparkle' in!

  Cas-ual Fridays -Happy New Year

10 minute Craft  Dash Anything Goes   - this card took me 7 min 36 secs.

I don't send New Year's cards but thought this sentiment worked for the New Year concept of starting out fresh. "We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us"  Joseph Campbell.  The stamp is from Rubber Soul.

I'm taking Kent to the hospital this morning for his shoulder surgery - he'll be there overnight but hopefully ready to go home by noon time.  He's been in such pain from it - he's excited to finally be getting it 'fixed'!

Before I go -  I wanted to let you know about the template sale Adela has going on over at Creations by AR
She's offering a free Swirl Top Box template and 40% of everything else!

Stamps:  Rubber Soul
Paper:  Bazzill off white, Pure Poppy, True Black - PTI, DP Enchanted/Authentique
Ink:  Archival Jet Black
Accessories:  red rhinestones - Michaels, foam dots, circle and circle pinking Nestabilities,
