The New Has Come

Hello, friends!  Welcome to Red Rubber Designs first blog post of the new year!  
It seemed fitting to feature the New Creation rubber stamp on my project as we are in the first few days of 2017! A new year is a fresh start, the old has gone the new has come!

For the background, I pulled out a previously created background layer and stamped it with the Background Stripes Rubber Stamp.  Creating my own patterned paper with background stamps saves me time and frustration when creating a card.  Even though I have a great deal of designer paper I find that quite often I don't have markers or inks to match!  I love the look of the distressed stripes and the stamp is a great size, measuring 6" x 4 1/2".

Do you have any goals or "fresh starts" in mind for 2017?  Leave me a comment and let me know! My "fresh start" begins when school starts in August.  I began walking regularly this past August and plan to continue making exercise a priority.  I asked for a tracker for my birthday so I now have added motivation as I track my steps, water intake, how much sleep I am getting, etc.  I am a touch geeky, I love the stats and the fireworks that go off when I meet a goal!!!

Wishing you many blessings as you leave behind the old and pursue the new in 2017!
