Good-bye to 2012

Can you believe it? We are saying good-bye to another year. Where did this year go. Time seems to be marching by so fast. I hope you are looking to 2013 as much as I am. We are hoping for a healthier year since Tom and I both had surgery this past year. I am looking for more time to craft for Operation Write Home. I started sending them cards in August of 2012 and if I have a resolution this year I think it will be to increase the amount of cards I make for them. Because of the impending postal increase coming up at the end of January, OWH is having a challenge.

heck out all the details about the Race to the Mailbox challenge. Mail your cards before the postal increase on January 27th and follow the OWH instructions and you'll have a chance to win one of 5 goodie boxes filled with craft supplies. New goodies to start out the new year!

Now I did a card for today but it's not for OWH. My son Dan visited for the holidays but has returned home to Boston. We share a love for football and especially the Colts. They won yesterday with a wonderful game against the Houston Texans so I mad him a card to say thanks for visiting and "Go Colts!" in the playoffs.

The image is from Doodle Pantry called Football and Helmets Color Plus. I used the color version of the football but the outline of the helmet and colored it Colts blue. My background is a piece of green card stock that I used a white gel pen to draw the lines for the yards and added the Colts names in the end zones. The helmet is colored with Copic Markers.

I am entering these challenges:

I want to wish you a safe and Happy end to 2012 and beginning to 2013. Don't forget that Doodle Pantry is having a 50% off everything except gift certificates today only (December 31st). That includes all the new January releases which we will showcase tomorrow. See you then!
