A year ends, and another begins.
Someone really needs to stop pushing the fast-forward button. Time's speeding up.
Do you have a crafty resolution for the new year? I'm resolving to complete each card as I make it. That means stamping a coordinating envelope, putting a "handmade by" stamp and my signature on the back, and a sentiment inside if it's appropriate. (Usually, I leave the inside of cards blank so I can write my own message, but sometimes, a stamped message is good!)
Now is the time of year to start planning for birthdays, so expect to see lots of birthday cards in January on this here ol' blog.
Birthday cards like this one:
Today's card uses an older Hero Arts set (Year Round Sentiments) that's sort of an all-purpose set. If you're like me, these sets tend to be under-utilized. They are basic, but a fun layout, happy color combination, and a little bling can turn those old, ordinary sets into something spectacular.
That might be another good crafting resolution for 2018: using older, basic sets in new, fun ways!
Just a thought.
So do tell if you have any resolutions (particularly crafty ones) for 2018.
Happy New Year!
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
stamps: Hero Arts Year Round Sentiments
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: dimensionals, rhinestones, Sharpies to color rhinestones, scissors to cut out the heart, which I popped because underneath is a very imperfectly stamped heart that made me mad until I realized I could cover it with a popped one, so good save for me...yay!
