A little motivation for the new year.....

Well hello there!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a fantastic Christmas and you're all set for the new year. I've got the feeling that 2014 is going to be a tea-riffic year!

So, if you've seen my afternoon tea blog recently you'll know that we ate a lot of scrummy afternoon teas last year. Its tough...but someones got to do it! With lots more teas planned for this year I definitely need to up my exercise levels (which won't be hard as those levels are currently set at zero!!).

The festive afternoon tea we enjoyed!
Luckily we have a fab new year challenge to get me motivated over at Sweet Stampin....this week we'd like to see your projects inspired by sports or fitness! What a great theme for me!

I've had this cute little image for some time now, so I decided it was time to put it to good use.....


Hee, hee....I'm really not sure whether you should use the word "sweat" on a Birthday card!

I've coloured my image with my Promarkers and have created my sentiment on my laptop. I've gone with a blue/purple colour combo which I always looks fab together.

For more inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and see the lovely cards that Team Abi have created this week. While you're there you can read all about our fab sponsors this week:

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Make it Monday

Thanks for popping by today,

PS - I have entered my afternoon tea blog in the UK Blog Awards...the public vote is currently open and I'd really appreciate your photo! If you've never seen Tea With Me and Friends you can find it here and if you'd like to vote for me pop by here.
