Wish :: Smile :: Enjoy


Happy Hump Day! Today's card was inspired by another card I made last year. I can't link it because it is going to be published this summer. I changed quite a few things about the card, so this one is basically an original. My cards usually morph as I am creating them. You can see the metamorphosis on this card because if this sketch were thought out in advance, I would have placed the three squares slightly higher to center it more. But, then again, that's what makes card making fun and interesting, right?!

Unfortunately, I didn't finish the baby scrapbook because I was given a one day extension and when that happens...I take it! :) I only finished one layout and got "creator's block." I thought I should stop because I'd rather create something that looks great, instead of something forced. So, I hope I have plenty of creativity bubbling tomorrow night! :)

One last request, today make a wish, smile, and enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to 'see' you tomorrow!
