Here's Hoping...

Hi everyone.  Where has this week gone, or should I say the first half of January? I can't believe it's Wednesday night already. Time got away from me this week, so last night I scrambled to put this card together.

With everyone's new year's resolution I thought this image would be perfect for all of us trying to loose weight. The image I choose to colour is called Hoping by Mo Manning in rubber at Stamping Bella.  I love the sentiment that went with this image - not today... maybe tomorrow. - it is so true, isn't it, at least for me anyway!


I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and then coloured her using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. Skin tones were done with copics.
After cutting her out I left the die in place, and sponged some versamagic aloe vera around edges.
This was then layered onto a piece of chocolate brown cut out with a spellbinder Lacey ovals. 

My layout was based on Deconstructed sketch#83.  Designer paper is Basic Grey  Sweet Threads.

If you haven't submitted your card for this weeks inspiration challenge you still have time.  You can email Emily your entry by Thursday night.  

 
And don't forget about our challenge over at SCS. Our theme is "a picture is worth a thousand words' - so no sentiment just let the picture tell the story.
You can read all about it here.

Okay, I'm off to work on my challenge card.  See you back here on Friday.  Thanks for stopping by.

  14. I'm new to building websites and I was wanting to know if having your site title relevant to your content really that vital? I notice your title, "Blogger: Pauline's Card Cupboard " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of help would be greatly valued.

  16. First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a
    quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was
    interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!

    though you relied on the video to make your point. You
    clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  22. Hello there. I noticed your website title,
    "Blogger: Pauline's Card Cupboard" does not
    really reflect the content of your web-site. When writing your
    website title, do you believe it's most beneficial to write it for Search engine optimisation or for your visitors? This is something I've been battling
    with mainly because I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the
    best quality for my site visitors.

  27. I comment each time I like a post on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.

    Usually it is caused by the fire displayed in the post I looked at.

    And after this post "Here's Hoping...". I was actually moved enough to leave a comment
    :-) I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to
    mind. Could it be simply me or do some of the remarks
    come across like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
