New Year's Resolution (kind of)

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends.  Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!  Today I have a quick little share with you so let's jump right in .........
My Theme Card for my SaddleBrooke Stampers for January was Resolutions - Big and Small.  And for those of you who know me ...... you know ...... I don't make New Year's Resolutions ....... but for the good of stamping and my SaddleBrooke Stamper Club ....... I'll make a resolution. 
So for 2012 ...........I decided I would eat more veggies (which honestly isn't a difficult resolution to keep - because I love love love veggies and Jack and I make a big pot of steamed veggies every night for dinner).  That would cover the small portion of my Theme Card - but what about the "Big" portion of my Theme Card ...........
That's where my tag shape came into play.  I created a BIG tag to hold my SMALL veggies.  And now all I needed to do was include the "resolution" part to meet this challenge.  WELL.....check out the background paper I used. It actually has the word "resolution"  on it ....... Did you spot it?
Well ...... come a little closer and check out the background paper I used.  I actually put my dictionary onto my copy machine and made a copy of the page that had the word "resolution" on it.  I actually used some Crystal Effects to highlight that word on my tag too.  CUTE NO?
I stamped and cut up six of my favorite veggies ...... I colored them in with my Copic Markers and added each of these veggies to a small punched tag.  Here are the Carrots and Peas .... YUM!
 Tomatoes and Corn ....... more YUM!
 And EggPlant and Peppers ......... SPICY YUM!
I love how this Theme Card challenge came together and even though I don't like making New Year's Resolutions - Somehow this one was Okay to do.

Thanks for joining me today - I've signed up for a Message Board Class that is being offered at my Real Deals store here in Tucson today.  The class sounded SUPER FUN and I thought I could use the break from making all my Stamp Camp packets ...... so I'm off to that class this afternoon.  Hope you can come back tomorrow and join me when I'll be sharing that project with you.  Keep Living Your Dream!
