So many times I think I have one paper and then when I search for it I either have something different (palm trees not cactus) or I have already used it all. The background paper to this card was going to be something else in my head, the thing is I already used all of that paper, and I like this better. It just not on the color pallet that I was working with. Well, at least the main design is all in the right colors.
“Here be dragons” that is why you always have to be careful when you leave your front door. You never know what you are going to run into. I kind of like the idea that on your birthday it would allow you to see the magical creatures of the world. Especially if you realized that they were around you every other day as well just going about there lives and coexisting and not being a threat. I am sure that it would go bad, but I like to think it could be a special kind of treat.
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.
