It seems to be all or nothing with me these days. Flurries of cards, followed by...nothing! I think that I've realized that my creativity has a mind of it's own! It comes...and just like that, it goes! And I just can't force it (no matter how much I try!). Hopefully it will start to come more often, since I just submitted a ridiculous order to Ellen Hutson (stayed up til midnight last night to take advantage of the 25% off sale!!!) and will be receiving some new goodies soon! So excited! As if that wasn't bad enough, I also spent a ton of money at the local store, who were offering 40% off of any product from one manufacturer. So I chose Ranger, and stocked up, mostly on a lot of distress inks. I've been wanting to try them out for a while, and now I've got an ink pad (or ten!) to play with! How could I resist 40% off?!! Love Black Friday!
My creativity did make a very brief appearance the other day (and quickly left!), and I came up with this card:
I really do need to make a little extra effort in photographing my cards!!
It looks so much better in real life!
One of the new Simon Says Stamps (I think it's the one in their December kit) featured some xo stamps. It sparked the idea to create a Christmas tree out of "hugs and kisses"! I used the x an o from the Paper Smooches Alphadots set and just eyeballed the placement best as I could. It's not perfect, but it will do!
Hope you like this little guy! And thank you so much for coming by to see me!
Have a good weekend, everyone! And a VERY (belated) Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends!!
