Special Cards

The next 31 cards are what I have been making all through January. I have made one each night before going to bed. I did not have a very good Christmas, it was sad & lonely & I was not feeling very happy. At the beginning of January I decided each night I would make one of these cards & put on it something that was special to me, something that held special memories or was important to me. I didn't intend to put them on my blog, but have decided to share them in case they might inspire someone who isn't feeling too happy to do the same, or similar.
The first card simply states, "I am special". And I am! But I am no more special than you or anyone else. We are all special & we need to recognise this. The second card reminds me that, by nature, I am 'carefree', & sometimes i forget that. I get caught in 'stuff' & become too serious.
I have used stickers, stamps & other embellishments on these cards &have tried to keep them as 'flat' as possible as my goal is to make 365 cards, one for each day of the year! Here are the first months card, I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them! Thank you for visiting, {{HUGS}} from me to you:-)

Sunshine, I just looked through your cards for the month of January. They are all so very special as you knew they would be. And they are inspiring at the same time. You have a wonderful insight to yourself. I really enjoyed reading all the explanations as they gave me a better picture of who you are! You are a wonderful soul - caring, and giving, and fun and fabulous. Thanks for sharing these!
