3 Clovers Designs Challenge

Hi All! Welcome to Three Clovers Design Challenge Thursday! Today, Kerry, asked us to make something that represented our resolutions for the year. Now, I don't make resolutions...I set goals. So...this card represents one of my goals for this year...ready?

My goal for this year is to not only make birthday cards but to actually send them out. I get e-mail reminders of my family's and close friend's upcoming birthdays and often just ignore them (there are one or two other issues in play here but those are mine and I'll not share them). So...this year...when I get a birthday notice I'm going to be certain to send a card and if I don't have one made I'll make it within 2 days of the notice to be sure it gets there on time. This is also a lazy issue for me...not sure why though as cards only make people happy or bring comfort so seriously...why would I not send them?

I've used the brand new Sweet Pea papers and Sweet Pea Stitched Felt from the new Occasions Mini. The colors and style are completely me! Love them!

So...I hope you'll hop on over to Three Clover's Designs to check out the challenge! If you participate please make sure you link up your card for all to see (on Kerry's blog or here if you'd like)!

Lori, I need to set that goal for myself as well. I am real good for making cards and throwing them in a bin. Lot of good they're doing there. Love you goal and I love your card. Great paper and layout too.

Awesome card Lorie! I really like it. It's nice to see someone else who sets "goals" rather then makes resolutions. I'm with you about the email reminders and then forgetting to send the cards out. Maybe I should make that same goal!
