Hi Friends! I was a good girl today. I actually participated in a challenge!! Whoohoo!! I went browsing around in blogland and found the Card Positioning System Challenge site with a fabulous sketch. - CPS118. Thought it was a fun sketch to create a card with.
I've been busy coloring images but not making any cards but I decided to step in my craft room this morning and create these two cards.
This image is the Greeting Farm "Sing". OMG! I just love this image! I cannot tell you how fun it is to color the Greeting Farm images. I can sit and just color and color and color.
Okay. . .this is the inside of the card. I created the flower with a template that I created. If you want to use it. . .
The dots were created using the Scribble Iridescent paint. These paints are so cheap and so fun to use on cards. They run 99 cents a bottle and you can find it in the fabric paint section at Michaels or Joanne.

Gosh, today I've been having some major allergies. I'm surprised I was able to make 2 cards. I managed to create them in between sneezing and blowing my nose. Hey . . .check it out! I received the Nestabilities that I ordered! Whoohoo! Now my cards will be stylin'! LOL! I always loved the cards that others make with the Nesties but I'm from the old school mentality. . .you know, if you can cut it yourself, why go expensive! Unfortunately, I've been way too lazy lately to even do anything without some sort of tool. Argggh!
I want to go back to creating things from scratch but I found that you need a whole load of motivation to do it and well, I just don't have that much of a mojo lately.
My problem is I'm not very focused. I want to do soooooooooo many things that there's not enough of hours in a day to do all the things I want to do.
I want to play with my camera, I want to create videos, I want to draw, I want to clean out my computer, I want to create templates and tutorials, I want to clean my house, I want to organize the garage, I want to go out and explore, I want to paint, I want to lose weight, I want to meditate, I want to go back to school, I want to go back to work, I want to take Jazz dancing lessons, I want to go bowling, I want to watch TV, I want to read . . . .I want to see a therapist. . .LOL! I think I need one.
Are you the same way? Do you have way too many interest that you are frustrated by the inability to do them all.
Anyway. . .this little lady is the Greeting Farm "Peace". I love her. . .she looks so cool! All she needs is a joint. . .hahaha! Wasn't that 60's thing? Ugggh! Peace is too young for that sort of thing and she said "say no to drugs"! Okay. . .I hope you know I'm playing around!
Well, I hope y'all have a fantastic day. I think I'll work on a few more cards tonight. I'm in the mood to make cards today!
