I made this card a few days ago and couldn't believe how emotional it made me feel. I am happy with the card, absolutely, but certainly wouldn't rate it amongst many of the great masterpieces ever made. I couldn't believe how moved I felt by this card and the made-up story that came to mind of a couple apart from each other with only dog-eared letters to keep them close I had managed to conjure up. I am amazed (and feeling a bit silly really) at how making this card instantly transported me into this Notebook-esque type tale. This is the first time this has happened to me while crafting that I am aware of. It was as if I finished a captivating book or watched a movie that was a bit of a tear jerker or as my husband puts it, "That makes you crack a crystal". Crazy huh? It probably just means I need to get out more. But really, how fantastic this passion for papercrafting is. It sort of confirms for me how moved and inspired I am by papercrafting alone. What's going to happen to me when I make something really good? *scary* Have you ever had this happen to you before?
