Branching Out

It was a very rare moment for me...I didn't feel like making a card tonight (shock, horror), so thought I would catch up on emails and do a bit of scrapbooking, but just have a quick look at the Inspiration Challenge on SCS....next thing the papers are coming out and 15 minutes later - one card for the Inspiration Challenge...one very simple card, but none the less one card!

I was inspired by this packaging and already had this image which was left over after a SU Workshop I had been to, it fitted perfectly into a Nestibility that my friend Melinda (aka Melinda80) had let me run through when we got together to do some card making last time - what a shame, Melinda left her Nesties behind when she left - I was busy that night and had a bad case of 'Cuttlebug Wrist!'

I ran the blue shimmer paper through the Cuttlebug and layered it on a navy shimmery paper - added a strip of the navy DP across the card and centred and graduated some Kaiser Half Pearls....a paper pierced corner this card was finished - so easy - infact I still have time to do some scrapbooking....I went to my monthly class on Wednesday night and liked my page but wasn't 100 percent thrilled - Thursday morning I tore it apart and have to redo it - I don't know about you, but whether it be a card or page...I have to be 100 percent happy with it....it isn't about how many I can get through but I want each piece to be a 'work of art' something that I am happy with...I don't want to compromise just to complete something....that would be the day I need to give it up!!

Thank you for visiting, your visits are so important to me....don't forget to leave me a comment, so I know you have been!! Have a great weekend - it is a cool one here....yesterday was 1 degree Celcius at 11am, 2 degrees Celcius at 2pm and today was not much better - to be indoors....snug and warm....beautiful!!! I hope your weather is just perfect - God bless you!!
