I'm pretty excited! I've found a neat group of gals who have committed to making 100 cards in 100 days! ...and I'm joining them! I started last night. Working off a sketch from Cardmaps, I put together this card in about 20 minutes. Those that know me, will appreciate that this is not my usual MO...as I generally deliberate over each detail far too much...
Working with Twitterpated paper and the word Create from Creative Elements~thought my launch into the challenge should state my intention~ I paired Island Indigo with Baja Blue. I had fun dying some paper flowers with Red Riding Hood ink and when they were dry this morning, attached them and viola, the card completed and posted! 1 of 100! (It is sunny and gorgeous here this morning...so you get a nice shadow from the ribbon and a bit of the definition from the scalloped edge of the punch diminished...good trade off for a beautiful morning!)
One BIG difference for me in the challenge will be that I will be shopping (the others are dedicated to using up their stash...which I think is a great idea) Me, I'm so excited about the brand new Stampin'Up! catalogue, I'll be shopping up a storm! But I want to take on the challenge to use the stuff I'm busy ordering and loving. I want to not just think Stampin' but do Stampin'.
I was away for the weekend at a wonderful Creative Retreat...and I had such a good time playing with some different mediums, I'm inspired to continue creating and playing from that as well..so everything is pointing to making more cards!
enjoy your sunny day!
