I am finally done doing administration type stuff, well I am always doing some but I am done with the big block I was doing. I hate trying to keep on top of stuff that isn’t fun creative stuff. I know it seems like I probably don’t have a lot of ‘work’ to do, but honestly, it sneaks up. Keeping everything organized is a job in itself. Anyway, that’s done for at least a couple of months (if I keep up with things).

This was not an easy card to make at all. It took days for everything to come together. Oh, but how I love it now that it’s done! I am not exactly sure how I got the color of the hair or the wings to turn out the way they did, but they came out exactly how I wanted them to. The glitter on the shamrock could have been a bit cleaner, but I love the flecks of gold that I didn’t even realize that where there! Three days later… was worth it this time.

I really like these holiday circles. They are so versatile and cute. I always have fun making holiday cards, though. I think that one of the things that I like is that each holiday has it’s own ‘personality’, its own symbols and shapes, its own colors and concepts.

When making my girl on this card i really wanted to give her black hair and I keep trying to figure out why I didn’t do that more often, then I realized that I am always scared that it may turn out a bit to grey. I think it is easier with blond or brown hair because lighter or darker patches look a bit more natural (sometimes), red and black are still a little more difficult for me to get right. I want to expand my hair color palette and my skin tone palette, but I am not exactly sure how to and still make it look right.

Making cards I notice what I seem to not have in my arsenal of crafting supplies. I have had two cards lately that have made me realize that I need to pick up some twine. I even saw a handy video on how to store it and I already have the items needed. Well, I was already planning a trip to the craft store tomorrow, hopefully twine will find its way home with me. Now what colors should I get…
