To that end I will also try to participate in more challenges, because there are deadlines and that will help push me to actually spend/schedule time to craft.
I really liked when I made at least one card a week for There's Magic in the Air. The challenge goes up on Monday through Sunday. This week's challenge is to make a thank you card and actually send it. I am a big believer in thank you cards, you don't use a present until the card is written and stamped. So unfortunately, I already sent out cards, and didn't hand make a one. I did make a quick card for the mailman so I could participate in the challenge. Technically I did not mail it, but I am thanking the mailman for all his recent efforts in delivering packages.
Nina has tons of cute digi images, that are great for cards in her store. I did not use one for this card - but I will use some for some upcoming Valentine's cards.
