It's been 6 months since I've posted a card. So much for getting serious about this blog! In truth I have made precious few cards. Even at Christmas, I just made a couple for people that I felt I HAD to send cards to, but I was just generally not in the mood. I'm not sure if I'm in the mood yet.
We will be moving again in about 3 months and, in anticipation of that I am starting to purge and box up what I will not need for daily life. Several times I have walked into my craft room thinking I would box everything there up, but each time I have stopped, hoping I might actually go in there and DO something. Well, today I finally did something. I made one card. Just one. But it's a start.
I think that I expected a bout of creative genius after my Mom died, because that happened once before during a hard life event - I went crazy with (what I thought were) great cards. That hasn't happened with the loss of my Mom however. So I guess it's time to make cards even if I don't feel particularly creative.
As usual, for inspiration (because I always need inspiration) I turned to The Play Date Cafe. Their colors for this week almost chased me back out of my craft room! Look at this:
I am sorry, but that is just awful to me. But I started looking at some of their cards and realized the loud picture board did not have to mean loud cards, just color inspiration. And so I was able to set to work. Unfortunately I don't have any bright green. I used the closest thing I could find. My colors were: Pear Pizazz, Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Dusty Durango.
This is the best I could do today for a photograph. It's taken with my phone! I have been having mucho trouble with my printer/scanner and my camera - well - I have no idea how a person loses a camera LENS, but I did.
So, if anyone is out there, thanks for looking!
