My friend Jenn has gotten me COMPLETELY hooked on making cards lately. I just love the fact that I can sit down to create without having to pick out photos, etc. and if I don't love it then I just won't use it! And let me tell you - before today's project came into my brain I made one UGLY card. Ha ha! Obviously I'm NOT going to post it here, you'll all laugh at me. :)
But I do love how today's project came out so it made up for the ugly beginning of my time in the scrap room. We all need to get warmed up sometimes, right?
And can I just say that I love snow days sometimes? It gives me the perfect time to go create without feeling guilty about not getting other stuff done. (Yes, I did the dishes first).
And one last thing - I'm so happy that I've had so much interest in the Card Club Night (last post), we're going to have SO much fun making cards!!! There is still room if anyone else would like to sign up.
