I am finding that I am short on two things at the moment, time for creating, and creative inspiration... they work well when missing in action together I guess. I have made a pledge to myself today to create "something" regardless of the little everyday interruptions, so it goes a little like this:
* Pull out cardstock
* Take out a drink to Clint who's mowing the lawn (it's really hot here today)
* Grab out some stamps
* Wipe a bottom (make that 2, because my twins seem to have an uncanny knack of doing EVERYTHING at the same time... too much information, perhaps?...)
* Get my trimmer out on the table
* Fix morning tea for the girls
* Sit down and look at the stuff on my craft table, completely bewildered at what I have put out... I think you get the idea;)
To assist me in my little creative rut, I have been having a quick flick on all of my favourite blogs looking for challenges to help me along. On Maile Belles' blog (man, this lady has awesome creative style!) I found a challenge over at the Embellish Magazine blog.
So, not only are these colours completely out of my comfort zone, stripes are also way off for me, so this was indeed a challenge for me. I have made two cards following the guidelines set out over at Embellish.
So, there you have it, two cards, very different to my usual choices in both colours and style, but at least I made something... I am getting worried I am forgetting my craft!
Have a great weekend, thankyou for stopping by, and to those of you who have left me comments over the last while, I do appreciate them;)
