After getting over my initial anxiety about nothing springing to mind when it came to these sets, I just pulled out these sets, dusted them off, scratched my head a few times, rubbed salve into the cat's boils, finished my 20 year old's baby photo album, cleaned the gutters, thought about clearing out the garage, had a nap, watched the Simpsons' entire 55th season (and I hate the Simpsons!), flicked over to Antiques Roadshow (nope, not much better), made a cup of tea, then another cup of tea and still had nothing. Sigh.
But after repeating the above cycle of procrastinating non-productivity with a few other variations on the same theme thrown in a couple more times, I finally managed to crank something out. Phew! I never actually thought I would get there, but I am so pleased I eventually did. The following cards are, for the most part, a combination of both sets, save the last, where I, well and truly, ran out of puff. In the case of my last card, I just went to my old trusty Spellbinders Rose Creations die and the Rose stamp from the YOF Collection. How do I love thee, Rose Creations die? Let me count the ways.
So without further ado, three cards for my inaugural participation in the Mini Blog Hop:
Thanks gals for letting me join in the fun and for motivating me to get out of my comfort zone and to have a bit of fun. I do, indeed, feel I've grown thanks to you ladies and for that I am so grateful.
Here's the list of the other lovely and ever so talented lasses:
I am off to have a look and be amazed and beyond inspired, no doubt. See ya there!
