Hello dear friends!
It's been a while since I've posted anything. I have been thoroughly enjoying the warm temperatures, spring flowers and not being on the computer quite so much. It's been lovely!
I have been making some cards though. I sneak away to my craft room every little chance I can and play. Actually I've been piddling a lot lately. I posted about piddling a while back, if you didn't read it, then what piddling means to me is, to just play with my stamps and card stuff with no particular goal in mind. No challenge to go by, no person I'm making it for, no reason, and no aim, just to get my stuff out, start coloring, cutting and gluing and see where it takes me. Sometimes I forget all about this, and get kind of serious about things I'm doing, and I lose my joy. When things start getting bogged down and I'm thinking , "this isn't as much fun as it used to be" that's when it hits me.... I forgot about piddling!!! Oh heaven's don't ever forget to piddle!!!
So I've been piddling again and it's soooooooo wonderful!
Here's where my piddling led me yesterday!
I LOVE patterned paper!! I also love clean cards with white space. It's sometimes hard to combine the two you know? So I'm always looking and thinking of different layout ideas that will allow me to use a bit of patterned paper, and still have a clean looking card. I came up with this design which I loved so much I made two more just like it in different colors!
All of the flowers and leaves are from Papertrey Ink, the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, and the arched dies are from Sizzix.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a good week so far! I'll be back on Friday for a new Festive Friday post! Meanwhile, I am going to keep piddling away here!
