One + 12 goes on!

This is my One Plus Twelve card, first month of 2020!  This was the brainchild of Kelly and she asked Jeanette and me to join her in this challenge in 2019. We are to use just one stamp, to make a card every month and post on the 3rd of each month.  It was so much fun that the three of decided to continue this year and pick a new image to use.

For 2020, I picked a newer Taylored Expression image called Big Grumpy.  I get to add different sentiments to his plaque each month and the set also came with a matching die.  There are also some coordinating sets to add other images to Grumpy along with additional sentiments. For my challenge this month, I thought this would be the perfect sentiment for the new year as everyone always wants to lose weigh as a resolution!

Here is the inside of my card:

Oh Barb... perfect choice of a stamp. That adorable (and a bit grumpy looking) bear is going to be so versatile which is great for this kind of series. I love it!!!

Your card is cute - and the sentiment cracks me up!

I'm looking forward to seeing Big Grumpy each month this year!
