Isn’t she cute? I just love this little sprite. The quote makes me unbelievably happy as well. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” -swoon That is exactly how I feel. This card came together so well that it exceeded my expectations completely! Even when I was playing around making the background paper my husband peeked at it and said “That’s fall”, I knew I had it right at that point.
Is it here yet? Ah, fall, how I love you. I am already getting excited about putting more blankets back on the bed. I know that we will probably have at least some more heat, but it is so close I can taste it. Oh, and it tastes wonderful! A bit like pumpkin spice…
Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!
Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more
Lately, I have really been trying to push myself to try something a little different on each card if I can. It might be something little, but at least I want to have tried something that might not be my normal way. This time I cut my digital image differently and it really made a big difference on this card! read more
