Elephant Wishes

Hello and Happy New Year! I know, it's already the 3rd of January...

I got a little space heater for my craft room so I've been back in there tearing the place up! We put the house heater on, but my room just does not seem to be getting any heat, and I've been way to cold to craft.
Anyway, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (or other celebration) and New Year! We went to Las Vegas and had a wonderful time.

Here is my first card for 2011:

So I was a little upset when I cut off this little guys tail...I need to start taping down my nesties! He is from the Critter Balloon collection at Bugaboo, colored with Copics, shaded with Ranger Ink, and plenty of glaze.

Isn't he just adorable?
One question: any New Year resolutions out there? Well, I hope to lose 10 more pounds (I lost a total of 23 pounds in 2010), make more Cricut creations (hopefully in the form of scrapbooking), and do at least 2 cool non-paper crafts a month. All fun stuff! I want to enjoy life. I went to a funeral today and I thought, I don't want Bean to remember me cleaning the house, I want her to remember having fun TOGETHER!!
My card meets the following challenges:
