Seasons Giving Blog Hop ~ Make Today Amazing

Welcome to the Seasons Giving Blog Hop, this hop is HUGE thank you to our blog readers and followers.
 There are about 70+ participants in this hop and everyone has a give away...so that means a TON of free goodies!
 I am grateful for all of you who stopped in to my little blog this past year and left little words of kindness.
Also, a big thank you to Latisha for organizing this yearly hop!  
Did you find, as I did that 2016 just flew by? Every year I have so many goals, desires and new ideas and it seems every year goes by with many of those simply floating in the wind. I am hoping this year to put more of those ideas/goals/desires to practice! So this year my BIG goal...is to run a half marathon...yep, I have put it out there and this girl is going to do it!  Granted it isn't until November but sign-ups start today :) I have done lots of 5K's and a couple of 10K's so this goal is BIG.
On to my card for today:
I thought this sentiment was most fitting for a new year and what better way to start a year than making the first day AMAZING! I used the new set from The Stamps of Life succulents2stamp and coordinating dies. The card die itself was made using the Sizzix 5x7 Circle Flip-its Card Set.
On to the blog candy:
For a chance at the prize package, all you need to do is leave a comment below (by January 15th), letting me know what your goal is this year. It could be a craft goal, personal goal or simply a desire you hope would possibly be fulfilled this year. If you would like, you can follow me on Pinterest HERE and Instagram HERE. Here is the master blog hop list:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Blessings,
Jennie

My goal is to gut my Craftroom and add hardwood flooring, cabinets, etc. I have it gutted as of the evening of the 31st! I am committed now. I recommend/don't recommend ever gutting your craftroom. I have found stuff I forgot I had....fun, but also a surprise when I run across a duplicate!

Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week.
