In our old house, we had a camellia bush in front. I have had a soft spot for them ever since then. I love how pretty, and hardy they are. I tried to grow a lot of things in that yard and nothing really worked, at least not anything that flowered.
Is it wrong that I am a bit jealous of the dress of the girl on this card? It can be kind of fun to live vicariously through the subjects that I am working on for a bit. For a moment I get to be a princess trying to figure out the colors of my perfect dress. I think it is where reading and crafting have a bit of a blending point for me as well.
Well, it looks like this is the second spring card I have made this year with the mouse and flowers. Oops! I was actually going to use one of the other critters from this set, but the mouse is just so darn cute and I am powerless to resist. I have problems resisting cute.
There is a point where you realize that you did something slightly ‘wrong’ but it is too late to fix. I didn’t realize that I had grabbed the wrong sheet of cardstock for the scalloped edging (it was supposed to be a darker green) until I had already attached everything to the front of the card. It’s not that big of an oops, but it still makes me frustrated with myself.
For someone who doesn’t wear any makeup at this point in my life, I still really love applying it. I realized that I get to do that a bit with my cards sometimes. I just love all of the different things that making cards let me do that I don’t get to do in other parts of my life.
It seems that I keep forgetting how much I like things until I pull them out to use. I really like my embossing folders and would love to have more of them, but I never think to pull them out and use them until I have a project like this. This is why I try and keep things out where I can see them, but there is still only so much space.
