Bear Hug

I love Valentine's Day! To that extent I love Valentine's Day cards! All the pink, red and hearts all over. What else do you need in a card? PANDAS! I love pandas. They look so cute and cuddly! (I know that they aren't cute in person.) Especially all the cute panda videos. Oh man I could go on about pandas forever.

For this card I wanted to use a CAS layout. I started out thinking of using a bunch of different pink and red papers that I had. However, I cut out one of the hearts from this paper and realized there were a bunch of different hearts that I was missing. I ended up using the one piece of paper and cutting out my favourite hearts. Then I outlined the circles with pink or red ink. The Panda set is by Mark's Finest Paper Co.

2014: A New Year! No 52 Week Challenge!

Another year has passed meaning it is time to look at times gone by. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful with my 2013 New Year's Resolution. Last year I resolved to make one card a week, however I only made it to exactly 26 weeks. However, the whole point was to take time for myself despite my busy schedule which I am improving at.

Two-thousand thirteen did bring growth for my blog. Here are some highlights from things I posted this year:

What will 2014 bring? I am getting married this year so perhaps a few wedding posts, DIY projects and more cards. My 2014 Carding Resolutions are:
  1. Try a different technique on a card at least once a month. (I tend to get stuck doing the same things over and over again. It's always good to challenge yourself and branch out a little more.)
  2. Perform 4 DIY projects this year. They can be things for the home, gifts, or holiday decor. Whatever ideas Pinterest sends my way.
Thank you for all the continued support. Happy New Year!
