SU Flower Shop Blues

Well, kids- there are two color challenges going on this week that are Red, White, and Blue. And, I finished a card today for The Paper Players # 199 and went to grab the badge and OOPS- I used the wrong blue- I used SU Pacific Point instead of Night of Navy! It was not even the blue for the other challenge…LOL!

Oh well, it’s all about the journey not the destination, right?


Another little side note….I had a very dear stamping friend email me last night and ask if I ever get frustrated when trying to design a card. She felt like she always ended up copying a card she sees on the internet. I reassured her that everyone does that,  and I look for inspiration everywhere- looking at 100s of cards sometimes to get an idea to jumpstart my creativity.

I told her that my Stampin” Success Demonstrator magazine emphasizes and encourages CASEing cards. It was funny that my magazine came today reiterating that very sentiment.  As I wrote her back it also reminded me to enjoy making the card even when I am lacking mojo. For example, this simple card came to be after I used up all my mojo planning for my Product Class.  I was stumped with what I wanted to do with the colors but knew I could just rely on some basic principles like layering and popping an image with a dimensional to put together a card. I ended up being happy instead of frustrating myself because I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do.
