  1. My favorite technique is ink blending, but I don’t do it nearly enough, so that is my crafty goal for 2020…MORE INK BLENDING!!! 😉

  2. Love the coneflower card! Hope you have a Happy New Year! I plan to incorporate the stencils I own into card making. I’m glad that stencils are now being included with card kits from several manufacturers.

  3. I’m looking forward to better health in 2020. My card making goals are to make and donate 100 cards to my local nursing home, and to try some new techniques. My favorite technique is die-cut inlay – the more intricate the better. Have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020!

  4. I am looking forward to the birth of my sister’s babies …Twins!! I am hoping to grow my card stash this year as well. My favorite technique is ink blending.

  11. Dear Karen
    A very happy new year to you and your family with blessings of Good health and happiness.
    My goals for 2020 I want to do bettewr in the jobs i do. I am a journalist and works on three jobs. go to see my Children ASAP.
    My crafting gols are pursue coloring. I fell in love with coloring after i joined the 30 day Coloring challenge with Kathy Racoosin. I learn from all of you. I have water color pencils but sharpening them is really hard and i want to buy another set. Still not sure so i am stalling it till i go to my daughetr in NZ. I want to buy a really a good set.
    Once i go to my daughters i will have a separate crafty space so i will plan and design a cosy place filled with all the handmade stuff. I want to spend the minimum and achieve the maximum. Oh the thought of it makes my heart flutter.
    with loads of love and gratitude
