Second guessing myself, something I do a lot. I had the idea for this card in my head, and I had to get it out. I think it turned out kind of cool, but I have been second guessing myself about it quite a bit. The thing is that I have a weird feeling that I have seen something similar to the background roses somewhere else. One way or the other it was a fun card to make!
The Easter bunny has come and left, and spring break is now over here. Hopefully, that means warm weather is officially on the way, but I am not going to hold my breath. I am just happy that spring cleaning should be done for the year! Now if we can just keep things in order until fall cleaning.
Straitining up my desk the other day reminded me of some things that I just haven’t found the right place to use yet. The ampersand die has been one of those that I keep looking at and just not having the click as to where it would work right. It finally found its place! Yay!
It can be a bit strange to me how inspiration works on a card. I was struggling with where to go with this week’s sketch. I always have ideas, but none of them seemed good so I just waited (which is what gets me into trouble some weeks.) Then another challenge had a bit of a nudge in the right direction, and I noticed a sticker with the perfect sentiment but it wouldn’t fit on the card. Next thing I knew I had the card that I had wanted to make all along!
Almost ready to get my tinfoil hat out… When I saw this sketch it felt a bit like someone was reading my mind. I keep thinking about these butterfly dies and wanting to use them, and I came across the flower brads a bit ago and keep trying to remember to add them to a spring card. This sketch was perfect for both things!
My gardening prowess is nill. I come from a long line of people who have beautiful gardens, it just skipped me. I surprise people with my knowledge of being able to look at a plant/flower and tell you what it is, I just can’t grow things. I don’t right out kill things (most of the time) I am like plant hospice, I help them on to the next life. I do however love visiting gardens and especially photographing what I find there!
