One of the reasons that I like to do challenges is that they make me think and sometimes I am not so sure that I do a very good job at that. They do always make me try new things and that is awesome. I am not very good at coming up with starting ideas out of the blue.
When I saw that the inspiration for one of the challenges was coffee and a book I had a hard time choosing one idea, so I will be submitting to this challenge more than once. This is just the first thing that worked with the other challenges that I was working on. I think the only thing that could have made this inspiration more of a challenge for me to narrow down what to do is if you added a pet to the equation.
This card is a sympathy card, but since I am starting to make Valentines I just keep thinking that it could fit there also. I think that a lot of cards have identity issues when I am looking at them and trying to classify them as one thing in particular or another. Then again that could just be me….
In order to make sure that everything is going to fit correctly on my cards I generally make a mockup in my design space program that goes with my Cricut. I didn’t do that this time, I don’t know why I just didn’t. You can see what happens when I don’t, I lost part of my design due to overcrowding! Lesson learned!
