Greeting Farm Cup of Stuff Card

Hi Friends!! I woke up today feeling fuzzy headed but towards the evening, wow. . it cleared up and I actually feel like myself. I think I'm just about over my cold. Ahhhh, I'm so happy! I hope it remains this way. . .you know colds. . .it can go well one day and bad the next.

You must be wondering. . .or maybe not. . .how I could craft daily considering I've had a cold for the past 5 days. Well, I have a secret. . .shhhhh. I pre-scheduled my posts. . .not the words but the cards and creations. There's days when I actually create more than one card but in the past, I would post the cards as I make them so if I make 3 cards in a day, I'll post all 3 cards in one day.

Well, I found that I end up with days when I can't craft and I have nothing to post. So. . .for the past 5 days. . .I've been posting cards that I made a week ago. Your like "What!". Yeah, I've been holding out on you all! LOL! It's a good thing I saved my cards. . .considering I got sick and really have not been clear headed enough to create a card or project!

Remember the song by Stephen Bishop. . ."Save it for a rainy day. . .you better, save it for a rainy day". . .well, I did!! LOL!

Anyway. . .check out my card created using stamps by "the Greeting Farm". The stamp set is called "Cup of Stuff "Oh my gosh, those mice are soooooo adorable. When I saw the stamp set, I just HAD to have it. It's one of those love at first site sort of moment. LOL!

I decided to create a not so colorful card with so many flowers and such. I have a tendency to create cards using my Primas and floral design DPs. . I stopped myself from adding them!! LOL!!

I colored my image using my Copic Markers. . .it's a mix of browns, grays and pinks. Yeah, a weird combo but animals sometimes have different color furs. . you know it's not always just brown or just gray.
Darn, the glitters don't look nice on my heart. Actually in person, it looks well covered with glitters but for some reason when the light shines on it, the glitters sort of show up in patches. Arggh. Darn lights!


Hey look I even did the inside. I thought those mice would look good on the inside too! Just something simple

I need to adopt your idea of pre-scheduling posts. i do the same thing with posting everything I made and then not having anything else to post! You truly are a genius!

This set is on my wishlist, it's just too cute! Love your card! Very nice!
I love pre-posting my cards, makes it so much easier and if you don't feel like stamping one day, no worries, huh?

I think this is very normal, since the beginning I never create everyday there's no way, and I always do more things when I do sit and keep posting.

Great card Maria, hope you begin to feel 100% soon.

Wow...your card is adorable both inside and out and look at how neat you trimmed around their tails! Amazing!!!
I need to start pre-scheduling my cards also, I find that when I do pre-schedule I can manage my time much better. As always, thanks for the words of wisdom and I hope you feel better soon.
