A New Year and more time? I hope you make the most of it!

 
When I first saw the Tea Time Trinkets in the 2013 Spring Catalog I was wowed! I think they're adorable... and plan to use the little tea cup and saucer for a charm bracelet. But there are two clock faces among the trinkets - one of which I wanted to use for today's card since today is all about time.
 
 
This card uses the retro-looking Tea for Two dsp layered on Early Espresso card stock (scallop border punched and embossed with a Needlepoint Border skinny folder - also in the Spring Catalog), on a So Saffron card with touches of Island Indigo. I used those same colors to ink up stamps from the Clockworks set, along with a sentiment from Elements of Style.
 
 
I used this sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #99.

 

It's going to be a great year! I can just feel it. January marks my 11th year as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, this is my 1,800th blog post, there will be new opportunities to be creative and to volunteer and make the world a better place, and focusing on the message above. I wish you all the best in 2013.

Great card. One for the masculine files. You have used two of my favourite stamp sets as well. Thanks for taking the time to join us at Try Stampin on Tuesday this week and best of luck keeping up with your resolutions.
