I had a few extra moments before doning my mask and heading out to the bakery, and so I decided to use the second set of painted strips for another card. To my shock and surprise, I loved how it turned out. Proof positive that if you don’t like a project, it just isn’t finished yet!
The card I ended up with today bears no resemblance to the one I was going to make. Changed the paper, changed the dies, changed the colour scheme and even eliminated the stamp I was going to use. It may not be gone forever, but it needs to “marinate” for awhile, I guess. In the meantime, the card below evolved and it turned out quite well.
I will leave it to you, dear readers, to decide whether the “Love Ya” refers to each other or to a narcissistic love of pumpkin spice coffee.
I made some more Valentine’s Day cards that came together quite easily and I really like. I picked up some individual sheets of paper from Scraps of Love that were just so cute for Valentine’s Day. The problem for me is that I like my cake and to eat it too. If I use the individual sheets of paper up, then I don’t have them anymore, and that makes me sad. What a dilemma! Just another first world problem that I have……………….poor me!
