Ahhhh.....it feels so good to spend some time back in the craft room and just create! Sometimes I think I get so hung up on what I really HAVE to do (even regarding what needs to be crafted for this or for that) that it drags me down and I lose my creative juices. Once in a while I need to create something just because! It does help me - and while it's not what I SHOULD be working on, it gives me motivation and inspiration.
And that's where today's card(s) came from. I should have been working on some projects that NEED to be done, but I was feeling uninspired, lackluster....you get the drift, right?
This card was pretty simple, and yet I looked at the new pack of Sweet Sorbet DSP (Sale-a-Bration 2014!!!) and thought -
Yikes! I can't work with this stuff. I mean look at that black pattern on the front of the card - WOW! Vivid, bold - FUN! In those cases I have to remember that less is more. Use those bold patterns in small quantities. That way they won't overwhelm.
For this card I even did some fun stuff on the inside - not very typical for me....but I love it, and will hope to finish off my cards more often!
Because I'm a Libra - and don't like to make decisions - I decided to make the same card using a black card base. And....I can't decide which one I like better.....they are both good....
Which one do you like better?
I'd love to stick around and chat - but this girl has a new refrigerator coming today! I'm excited as a new puppy! I've wanted a new fridge for YEARS! Finally, I just ordered one. Here's what's really crazy - we measured our old fridge (a used one we've had for 12+ years!) and it's only about 15cu feet. That's a small fridge for a family of 5 - that small! The new one is 22 cu ft. I'm gonna feel like I could get lost in it....
