Yes! So happy that it's Wednesday because that means the weekend is just around the corner. You can see it, right?! Well, I have a busy weekend planned ahead of me that includes re-organizing my studio and lots of crafting for some upcoming projects!
Since Becky Oehlers has started her Compose a Card challenge, I've wanted to participate and finally worked up the nerve. Boy, did it take some nerves! I went through two pieces of patterned paper and a few stamps before I finally decided on the layout and design. I thought this challenge was going to be a piece of cake, but for some reason it wasn't! I was truly challenged! I'm used to being inspired by a challenge, but this one is different from others. You have more constraints to stay within, which is good when there is just no mojo out there. I kept forgetting to stay within the challenge, which made my fairly clean and simple design not an easy production process. All the while, I had fun and recommend you heading over to Becky's blog to get involved in a real challenge, that is...if you haven't already!
Thanks for your visit today! Have fun and do something spontaneous, even if it's not your usual route home!
