Brain Fuzz!

You Take the Cake - JH'13 (4)Hi bloggies!

Saturday was a cool rainy day … and we had no particular plans … so YIPPEE … I could take some ‘time out’ to stamp. BUT … little did I know how frustrating this time would be! I am so rusty that it took all day to make 3 cards! (With a few interruptions, of course!) I had some FAB new stamps to use … but could not pull a design together … if my life depended on it!!! So … I checked out a few challenge blogs … and found a great colour combo to get me started. I pulled out my “sketches book”with all the sketch files that I have downloaded & printed from the internet. Here is what I finally came up with! ………..

You Take the Cake - JH'13 (1)You Take the Cake - JH'13 (3)I added some pretty accents — Stickles and Liquid Pearls … but I need to practise having a steady hand for these pretties! They are a little ‘messy’! And this ‘enlargement’ pic shows just how much of an amateur I am!!! 😉 But … over all I was quite happy with the result! This was inspired by the Play Date Cafe challenge #167 … a sweet colour combo! I haven’t done a challenge card in MONTHS!!! So … a little brain fuzz interfered … but I hope they like it anyway!!!

Will be back to show you another tomorrow … I have to get it posted before the deadline!

  3. Very gorgeous Andrea. Glad you had time to stamp. I’m sure that your “bad” cards are still very sensational. You can’t make a bad card 🙂

    Look forward to seeing your other cards you have created.

    Love Jenny x
