Happy New Year! This is such a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year – Thank you!
My New Years crafty goal is to learn one new technique per month and to share this in my monthly ‘Build Your Stash’ class, where I encourage others to share their new ideas. I do this card making class for all the events in our lives. We have all created a beautiful ‘box’ where we store our ‘Stash’ cards so that they are easy to find when an event comes up. I love being surrounded by my friends and family and helping each of them to keep their passion for paper crafting alive in their hearts!

Hi Bunny. I watched Jillian's video last night and totally enjoyed it. She is a great designer. The new years card is beautiful!
Last year I was not able to spend much time in my craft room, esp. the past 6 months so that's what I intend to do. As a grandma of 2 little grandsons, I am taking some time for myself to do what I enjoy this year, that is my personal resolution for 2018.
Happy New Year

Love that awesome impression plate & your fabulous card! A great design! I'm looking fwd to getting my craft room completely organized & passing all the unused in forever items on to crafty friends. Maybe I can make more cards without all the "stuff" cluttering my mind.😊

Nandini said...

Love your card and I really love the new plates. They look very interesting! I am looking forward to designing more stamps and stencils and also improving my coloring skills.

Kari said...

I really love the back of the card, that plate does such a fabulous job. I am going to have to check then out. What I am looking forward is more organization and with that comes better health. Unfortunately, I am disable now because of my illness, so I gather if I keep up a positive attitude and keep on fighting and modifying the way I use to do crafts. Maybe it will bring my spirits up which will then make me feel better and other things will fall into line. Maybe I will be able to join the living. This awful disease call Lyme disease has taken so much away from me but I cannot let it stop me. It is a constant battle, so maybe more organization will equ@l peace. Thanks for generously allowing everyone the chance to win. I like to wish you a very happy, health, and prosperous New Year, take care Kari (macpunkin@hotmail.com)
