The TSC challenge this week was to pick something from one of seven Jan. 17th holidays. I chose National New Years Resolution Breaking Day. I don't make resolutions so I have none to break. I do know a lot of people who tried to give up chocolate and failed.
The image is RR and water colored in. The wall behind her is sponged and the bed is colored in silver gel pen. The bed is colored in Bravo Burgundy and covered in Retired SU Vellum. The sentiment is from Art Impressions and backed with a Nestie. Finally, the hearts are SU Sweetheart Candy 2 embossed in chocolate.
Thanks for looking!!

Look at this girly girl now. Isn't that you eating chocolate while on the phone with your man! WOW, I do love the little chocolate heart. I should have made this my new year's resolution, because I don't have a thing for chocolate at all...mine is bacon hickory chips by Lay's!
Cool sponging, and the fancy layout too. TFS Baby!

Jamers, this is gorgeous. I am so impressed with your cards and I know your stamp mama mom, is so proud of you. Your coloring is great and I love that sponged background. Yep, NY resolutions are made to be broken so I don't do that anymore. I am making the attempt to not eat as much chocolate and I can do that. Giving it up totally, now I am not going to torture myself that much. :)

Very pretty card Jaime! I love the colors you chose...I'm a fan of anything yellowish...hehe! Anyway, the holiday you selected is perfect and seriously, people give up chocolate...that should be some kind of sin! LOL! Me, never, I love the stuff far too much! Anyway, this RR girl is fabulous and sh is colored beautifully! I especially love the sentiment that you used with her! ;) It's so true!
