Faith is asking us to show a resolution on our cards for the Tickle a Teapotter challenge today, as we say farewell to 2013 and hello to 2014.
My card shows making time for friends. It's easy to say "let's meet", but sometimes it never comes to pass unless we make an extra effort. I've recently met up a couple of times for lunch with an old school friend whom I just happened to bump into one day back in July when I was in town after work. But if I hadn't rung her and made the date - maybe we'd still have been talking about how we must meet when we were writing our Christmas cards!!
A2 base. I cut the bottom inch off the front - the diecut cardstock isn't as strong but gives enough support.
Image stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with pencils, Glossy Accents on the china cup. I used the same colours I'd used for colouring for my two scalloped layers. Computer generated sentiment - it might be in French but I'm still looking for my extra cookies ;-), tied on with seam binding.
Reason for the French sentiment - yikes, I forgot to send a Christmas card to one of our French friends who lives in the UK. Luckily a) she's home in Paris for Christmas and b) they tend to celebrate the New Year and Three Kings much more and c) French people send New Year's cards more than Christmas cards - so one of these went postal today and the other is all ready to send off to tickle a teapotter.

This is so true Sabrina. I used to wait for people to call me and I don't anymore. Life is too short and it's so important to stay connected to people. There are two gals & myself, we have been friends since the First Grade. For years after high school graduation we corresponded occasionally, and when our kids grew up we finally reconnected. We don't even live that far apart. Now we make it a point to get together several times a year for dinner out and yaking the hours away at a local Starbucks. Starbucks doesn't care if you take up space talking, plus the coffee is good too!!!
