Alcohol Markers Challenge - The Outlawz

Enter to win my blogaversary candy here until December 31st

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for this last weekend before Christmas!  It sure is hard to believe!  With my cards and gifts in the mail, I don't feel as stressed as I did.  Maybe I will even have some time for crafting for fun!  Anyway, I am here now with my DT card for this week's Alcohol Markers Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "Happy New Year or New Year's Resolutions".  You can interpret this as you wish, but please remember you must have some coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) to play along.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste "Adorbs" 6x6 pad.  The cute image is New Year Resolutions from Time For Tea Designs, our sponsor for December.  Jo generously provided the team with some digis to use for the challenges.  I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A simple pink bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the fantastic creations with this digi from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will play along!  One randomly-selected participant in our December challenges will win 3 digis of their choice from the Time for Tea Etsy shop.  There are also lots of excellent site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter any of the challenges at The Outlawz.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Incy Wincy (sketch challenge)
Oozak Challenge #28 (something old/something new; I used older paper and a new digi and a new year theme)
Cute Card Thursday #300 (celebrations)
Charisma Cardz #49 (anything goes)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #83 (holiday blitz)
QKR Stampede (happy holidays)

Here is the Incy Wincy sketch:
