Last Card for 2013!!

Hello Stamping Friends!!

This is my last card for 2013.  I kept track of my cards this year...the ones I made, the ones I mailed, even challenges that I completed.  Since I didn't actually mail Christmas cards, my "mailed" number suffered a bit.  I'll work on that in 2014!

So, how did I do?  I mailed 33 cards that were in my stash before this year. Kinda fun to keep track of those...especially since I often make cards in December which get mailed in January or February.

I made 217 cards this year...
I completed 150 SCS challenges and 18 Blog Challenges  (some cards meet 2 challenges).  I definitely want to do more Blog Challenges!
I donated 36 of these cards to the ministry of Women's Care Clinic
I sent 18 of them to swaps
And I mailed 112
That means I have 51 cards to mail in the coming year! (28 of those are Christmas cards)

So, any way....

Here is my last card.  The colors are pink pirouette, soft sky, and sahara sand.  I don't have any soft sky card stock yet, and I had a scrap of sahara sand...did not feel like opening a new pack.  Not sure I like this, but hey, it's done!  I needed another winter birthday card.

I ran the sahara sand through the Big Shot with the elegant lines impression folder, then sponged with soft sky ink.  The ornament is from SU's "Tags til Christmas," used with the coordinating punch.  Once again, "Teeny Tiny Wishes" is used with the dynamic duo of punches...word window and modern label.  Some rhinestones and elastic cord finish it off.

I am looking forward to more stamping in the New Year!  Christmas cards, birthday cards, thank you cards... Hopefully you will be inspired to create pretty things too!

Inky {{{HUGS}}} and Happy New Year!!
