Lizzie Anne January Design Team Challenge

This month's Lizzie Anne Design Team challenge is to make a card or project that reflects our New Years Resolutions. Ok, confession time! I don't really make resolutions, but I do usually reflect on where I would like to be in the new year and set goals. One of my goals this year is to run the McGuire Mud Run. 6 miles through mud and woods and obstacles.  eeeek. Now that I've shared it for all the world to know the pressure is on to see it through. *


I must have pulled every single Lizzie Anne stamp out that I had looking for something with a running theme. hint hint...we need a jogging Little People stamps Tricia and Meridith. :) I finally found the perfect stamp in the September Treasured Trinkets... a paint splatter aka MUD! 


I created the banner with Echo Park stickers and twine. The flourishes on the green strip are from Fanciful Flourishes. 



* want to know another confession? I DON'T RUN! But I will by the time fall comes round!
