Our first customer entry is from Tracey Kuzniak at My World of Cards, Scrapbooking, and Triathlons.  To design her card she used Cover-A-CardTM stamps FlourishesWoven Tapestry, Bubbles, and Medallion.  The words are a sticker.  Her resolution is to do more for her husband.  What a really atractive and masculine card, Tracey!

Next is Shannon White's wonderful card.  She used a clear stamp sets, Celebrate for the main image and Birthday Cakes for the words, to create her 'sweet' card.  These stamps can also be purchased individually as Red Rubber stamps Cake Stack and Celebrate.  Shannon said she has a very very big sweet tooth and she needs to keep it under control in the coming year.  A really 'sweet' card Shannon!!

Our last, but not least, card for this post is offered by E.

Marie's resolution is to try to take more time to enjoy all of the wonderful things in her life.  What a wonderful choice, Marie!

Next is Deloris Thiede's, at Stamping At The Lake wonderful card.  She used a Northern Lighthouse to design her beautiful card.  Deloris said her resolution is to use more of her treasured stamping supplies that she hoards.  Now that sounds so familiar, Deloris!!  A really serene and beautiful card too!
