Happy New Year! Thank you so much for all of your lovely New Year wishes - I hope 2015 is a brilliant year for everyone! Have you made any resolutions? I don't normally make them but last year I decided to put some on here and I actually kept them! I wanted to work on my colouring and although I never progressed with the pens I was using at the time, it turned out even better than I'd hoped when I bought Inktense pencils and found a colouring medium that I actually love using! My second resolution was to use my craft supplies instead of saving them because they're too nice. This one was definitely put to the test when I bought some of my first Maja Design papers, but once I'd cut into my first sheet I was converted to the idea that beautiful craft products shouldn't be hidden away when you can get so much pleasure out of using them!
So my resolutions for this year are:
- Try new techniques and different types of crafting projects. I so often look at other people's creations and think 'I'd love to try that' but end up putting it off.
- Be a better blogger and not get so behind on catching up with everyone.
- Use the stamps I already have! I know I'm not alone in buying new stamps when I have others still unused so hopefully I'll do better with it this year. This one is definitely a cautious resolution because I'm not sure how well I'll be able to resist new releases...
So now onto my card and I'll keep this bit brief:
Image (coloured with Inktense pencils) - Love You Bunches (Sylvia Zet Wee image, Whimsy via Bunny Zoe's Crafts)
