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!
