new year resolutions adventure

I don't make resolutions for a new year; if there's something I want to change or begin, I don't wait.  For things that can be counted though, January 1 is as a logical starting point.  I set myself two goals this year - read more books and create more.  Cut It  Up Challenges  requested cards that indicate our resolutions or goals:
stamp set - Crafting Forever; ink - Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, Versamark; Stampin' Blends; Stampin' Emboss powder - white; card stock - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist; Big shot with Layered Ovals and Banners (retired) framelits

(edited to add): I almost forgot to tell you, I used the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments!

Two of my Stampin' Up! team members came over for a Stampin' Blends play date and I've had the paint brush pot sitting on my table since then.  I have a couple of birds that are looking for places to roost, too...

I won't know whether I've actually read more books and made more things if I don't know how many I did last year, so, I counted the cards I made last year (259) and joined the #365somethings2018 challenge.  To date, I've made 14 of my #365cards2018.  Here's this week's set:

I'm only one ahead, at 14 on the 13th, but I need a few more for Card Buffet Wednesday evening; at least two designs for the options to make and two more for the samples display, so I'll get back to work now - thanks for stopping by!

Wow! 365 cards is an amazing goal! Good luck! You're off to a great start. Maybe it's something I should consider . . . Hmmm.

I love your idea to be creative every day. And your card is beautiful. I like that you used something that was laying around and gave it a home.

Thanks for joining us for our New Year's Resolutions and Goals challenge at Cut it Up!
