Hope for the New Year

Stampin' Sisters in Christ's challenge is to make a New Year's card inspired by Psalm 25:4-5 "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior and my hope is in you all day long." This Judi-Kins stamp has been a favorite of mine for a very long time though I've never inked it -- so I was glad it offered an opportunity to start the new year right. My New Year's resolution is to let no stamp go uninked! The design team over at SSCC has done their awesome best for this challenge -- go take a look. And while you are surfing around -- please visit the Cupcake Craft Challenge to see some great work there for the challenge "A Time for Celebration" where I've also submitted this card. And, while I was surfing around myself, I found another New Year's card challenge at the Lily of the Valley Challenge Blog -- go see! Happy New Year everyone! Oh, and by the way, my son has approved this design. LOL
Stuff I used: Stamps - Judi-kins, Inkadinkado, River City Rubber Works, Cuttlebug folders, gems, Art Institute Glitter

I like your resolution! I might have to steal it.LOL I too, have stamps that are un-inked and need a little attention. Your card is wonderful and that stamp is great.

Thanks for playing this week.
