New Year, New beginning

Happy New Year! A week into 2015 already and life is nearly back to normal! I've hidden the remaining chocs and other goodies at the back of a cupboard and am trying to forget they're there! Hope I don't see another mince pie for a long time!!!
I don't make New Year's Resolutions, I only break them, but I am trying to be healthier... walk more, eat sensibly, drink less wine (sob!)....don't expect it to last long but I'm trying!
My card today is my DT card for Creative Moments, the theme for this challenge is ' New Beginnings' so plenty of scope for interpretation there! We have two fantastic sponsors this fortnight

For my card I used the super cute Baby Spiky Bear digi from Creative Bug. He's coloured with copics

die cut and matted onto a circle of green card. Papers are First Edition 'Up and Away', the 'baby' letters are punched from the dp and matted onto circles. My daughter will pinch this card as her friends and colleagues seem to be  doing their best to rapidly increase the population of the UK!
We hope you'll join us at Creative Moments this fortnight, just click here for further  inspiration from my talented team mates and to share your own 'new beginning'!
Thank you for visiting!
