Thanks to You

Hope everyone had a great weekend and got lots accomplished. I was able to get alot done, clean, craft and watch football. What more could one ask for even though the Pats lost to the rival NY Jets it was still an ok game.

This card is for special someone who has taught me alot whether they realize it or not. A person with great artistic talent and very much an inspiration. Now I don't know if my creations will ever reach that level but I'll continue to practice.

When I first started stamping awhile back most of my cards were very simple, I mean some I look back at now and they are down right frightening. But thanks to many encouraging people I'll keep plugging away.

With so many stamps to choose from it's hard to choose a favorite. I've decided I really enjoy coloring, it reminds me of when I was little and all my coloring books had to be coordinated. For example if I decided Barbie's hair was a certain shade of brown, it was the same color throughout the whole book, and nobody else had better color a page with the "wrong" colors.

But I've learned to mix & match a little better now and I'm not quite as afraid of mixing what I once would have thought as an odd combination. Now my cards are also in shapes & sizes other than the traditional A2. I hope my inspirational person likes it. How/who has inspired you?

Everyone have a good week, for me it will be a short one as I took a couple of days off at the end.

Such a darling card! I wish I could have a couple days off this week, lol. Do you have fun stuff planned?

I seem to have lost my scrapping, so I tend to more inspired by Pat and Marjorie, who scrapbook way more then cards. :)
