Do you always like what you create?

Well I wasn't going to share this card because I'm not in love with it but a recent conversation amongst my fellow crafters and the stomach flu have made me think that just because I don't like it doesn't mean someone else won't. Do you love every creation you make? Does creating come easily to you? Those were the base questions of our recent Facebook conversation.

So without further ado, this is that same Avery Elle set that intimidates me so much...

This picture doesn't show the true qualities of this card either, I used shimmer mist on the "peach" flower directly on the stamp before stamping which lends to a super cool effect. It doesn't photograph very well though.

Sorry to be so short today but the stomach flu has hit our house and I need to go back to bed. :(


Fusion #5 Challenge

Happy Sunday and Happy March! Today I needed a little inspiration to give me a jump start and I love challenges for this. It just gives me a starting place whether its a sketch, color or photo inspiration and today the Fusion Card Challenge spoke to me. I have played along with this one before and everyone is always so nice! Here is this weeks inspiration...
With this challenge you can choose to play along with either the photo inspiration, the sketch inspiration or you can use both to create a fusion. I choose to use the sketch inspiration it just spoke to me. Here is my take on the challenge...
Fusion #5-sketch inspiration
 I love it when things just come together and I was doing a happy dance after I finished this card. First off who doesn't love sequins and a shaker card? This Simple Stories paper was so fun and bright reminding me that summer will come eventually! The stamps that I used were from Precious Remembrance Shop's Thanks Stamp Set. Have I mentioned how much I love the quality of Precious Remembrance Stamps? They are quickly becoming some of my favorites to work with.

Over all I think this is my favorite card from the week. Well enjoy the rest of your weekend and we will see you on Tuesday. I'm off to have a movie date with 3 of my favorite people :)
