New Beginnings

Today I'm sharing one of my New Year's Resolutions, which is to create cards for fun, not just for DT work.  And this is the first of my 'just for fun' cards for 2012.

I'm using a new LOTV image.  Since this was my first time colouring this image, I think I've coloured it wrong.  I thought the little bit behind the bear was part of his PJs, so I coloured it red, but I think that it is actually part of the pillow behind him.  Oh well. I'll know for next time.  LOL

Card Recipe:
Please pop on over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
