Yes, I am aware that NSD was yesterday. I promise that I really did celebrate on time! Okay, I celebrated after I got through with being an adult for the day. My husband seemed to be blissfully unaware of the importance of NSD when he scheduled appointments for us. The nerve!
Once home, I ran up into the crafting room and looked at my supplies. With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, making a card was my first priority. I happened to have some Simple Stories Posh die cuts sitting out on my desk from a previous project. I chose two to use for cards. The florals and soft colors were perfect for this particular occasion.
It didn’t take very long to dig through my scrap bin to find some matching papers. I have a plethora of aquas, teals, pinks, and yellows. At that point it was just a matter of stacking up a few rectangles and positioning the die cuts. Each card has a smattering of enamel dots, pearls, or sequins to finish it off. In all, I made 3 cards in under an hour. (The 3rd is super simple in a fall color palette.) I think that is a record for me.
The bicycle feels like an appropriate motif for my papercrafting lately. I need to keep pedaling on and creating. Though I am not doing anything that is cutting edge, I feel the momentum going in the right direction. And hey, it is so much fun playing with the pretty products! That is the important part.
