Enjoy the Ride...

For the Cards for Kids Blog Hop click here.                                                                                                                        Happy, happy Thursday...the weekend's almost here...which means craft time for me!  Friends of mine will ask...how do you make so many cards to post to your blog?  How do you find time to do it?  Well, reality is I normally have a couple "power hours" per week....  Friday nights and Saturday mornings...I print out whatever challenges are current and think about who I would like to send a card for that week.  Then I'll spend a couple hours on Saturday mornings before everyone else wakes up or an occasional evening (this is when Collin is with me :)!)  in the craft room.  I then try to snap photos that same day...and write my posts during the week.  Truly is my relaxation time!  
So...now onto the current Embellish Challenge.  I found out that I don't think I have very many cutesy stamps...so I took two attempts!

First attempt...I did not like the coloring on this one...should have water colored it...

Second attempt....with a little reminder to self...this is about fun...not perfection :)!  Enjoy the ride!

First a close up shot...
Second...the whole card....

  2. Well I think they are both fantastic! Really love the layout on your second though. Tall cards are so striking. Great details all around, which is something that you never fail to do!
