Happy New Year and a Challenge

Happy New Year!!

Do you have any new year's resolutions? I have some and the avid crafter wouldn't be surprised to hear that most are craft related.

Craft Resolutions

  1. Use all owned Stampin' Up! embossing folders at least once (both current and retired).
  2. Use all owned Stampin' Up! dies at least once (both current and retired).
  3. Use all owned Stampin' Up! stamps at least once (both current and retired).
  4. Post for One Sheet Wonder Wednesday once a month (be on the look out for tomorrow's post, I've already started composing it so I have faith I'll actually post it this month).
  5. Use facebook to actually mail out birthday cards to family and friends.
  6. Participate in more Card Challenges.
Now I don't expect to accomplish all of these things in 2019 (I own a lot of stamps and it could take a while to use them all at least once), but I want to make an attempt.

Now on to the Challenge.... the beauty of a good challenge is that it gets you to think outside your usual process.  I find I like to look at the different Challenge blogs and think about them, sometimes it's a few days later when I come up with an idea...and the finished product never comes out as I envisioned.

Festive Friday Challenge

Today's card is for Festive Friday Challenge #FF0024 of Letter Writing and/or Blue.  Once I actually sat down to start this card, it came together very quickly, even if I had to toss the first version because I messed up the ink in multiple places.

Supplies Used


  1. Oh, Venessa! This card is absolutely perfect for this challenge! I LOVE it...especially the bold, blue "Hello There"! Thank you for sharing at Festive Friday!
