Create My Amazing Moment

I am very excited about what this year is going to hold with respect to my world of crafting. I love to create. To colour, design, getting crafty and get messy. I love to challenge myself and most of all have fun. My card making is a great release, especially after a long, busy and stressful day at work (of which there seems a lot). My crafting time is my stress break and it's done most of the time in the few hours I have after the kids are settled and my own bedtime.

This year I have made a commitment to myself to have more me time. I also would like to try and participate in some card and/or scrapbook crops/classes and take the opportunity to connect and learn from others with similar interests .  I look forward to the new connections that I will make this year.

CAS-ual Fridays has a great challenge on right now that was a great opportunity to sum up my personal crafty goal!

The challenge is to choose a word that describes what you hope for the new year. Mine is more than a word, but I think it sums up my goals well. "Create My Amazing Moment"! This is a card that I am giving to myself! I don't often get handmade cards, so this is one I am going to keep on display for the year.

To help with my personal declaration I used a new stamp I picked up from Tiddly Inks called "For the Birds". This is the clear stamp set, which I coloured with my Copics, then stamped the letters to spell "create".

The sentiment is from a stamp that came in one of my previously received Studio Calico card kits (I don't remember which one). I added the "My" to make it personal.

Inside I added the other sentiment from that same Studio Calico set and added additional Tiddly Ink "For the Birds" images. They are so cute. I may add a sentiment to that sign, if I ever decide to pass this card along, or I will record a message or list to myself of important things to remember for the year.

I haven't done a lot of CAS type cards. However I must say the last few that I have done, I am loving a lot.
