What does it mean to start over or maybe to start again? Sometimes it just means to take one small step forward.

The new year always causes me to reflect. I love the idea of a fresh start while remembering all that was accomplished. Along with setting some personal goals for myself, each year I try to pick one word that I want to focus. This year I chose (or maybe it chose me) Renew.

There are many areas in my life where I need to apply this word to. I want to renew connections to family members and friends. I need to renew a desire for healthy living. I crave a renewal in my relationship with my Lord, Jesus Christ.

And, as I write a new post in almost over a year, I can’t wait to renew my passion for crafting. Part of how I can reignite that passion is to share what I create with others. I plan to do that, not only through this blog but also through hosting crafting events and a few other things I’m planning but haven’t quite worked out the details yet – so I hope you stay tuned!

Let’s begin with sharing a card that I created as part of a swap I participated in to celebrate the launch of the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.

One ink color (Calypso Coral) with one card stock color (Whisper White) does not mean you have to have a boring card.

I wanted to use this exquisite satin ribbon, so that was my jumping off point.

Add a gorgeous stamp set, a few punches, and a few more embellishments and you have a beautiful card that is easier than you think to put together.
