A couple of cards for today

Some days are harder to create something than others. Today was one of them days. I just wasn't feeling it. I did manage to do these 2 cards. I can't say that I am thrilled with them, but then again cards are not my strong point.

Card 1........

I used some retired wings paper and the stamp set Trees & Things.

Card 2........

For this one I used some retired Bliss paper and the new Just For You stamp set. I don't think I like the color combination here.

Oh well, tomorrow is a new day. By the looks of our house when I got home this evening, I will be spending a good part of it tidying up.

It was so good to chat with Vanessa and the other ladies at the Scrapbook Nook in Ludington today. Which is likely why there was not mojo flowing. I was to busy talking to get into the groove of things! Go figure :)>

  1. Just a thought for you, maybe if you would have added some stickles on the leafs of the tree & on the flower of the card2. I think it would make them pop. You know me the stickle Queen!

  2. I have the same stamp set that you used in card1 that was featured in a CTMH video but never put it to use yet. I think you did a good job with it!

    1. Thank you Karen. I really feel like they are missing something. I tried to keep them simple for a card workshop. Maybe if I stamped the treetop, trimmed it out, and put a little foam under it. Hmmmm.....
