I forgot!



I have been sat in my craft room for 5 hours trying to create and blah! Nothing! So today you are getting a card I made a couple of weeks ago that I forgot to upload!

I have decided that my weekness is sentiments, I never know what to use, how to attach them, where to put them. I see everyone else adding ovals, tags, circles, etc and they always look so natural and part of the card, but me, I just can't think of what to do to finish the card off. I think I need to start making sketches of how everyone attaches their sentiment. I think Cindy Haffner on Splitcoast (sorry site was down at the time I wrote this post so I couldn't put a link) is a genius at attaching sentiments, they always look such a natural part of the card, mine always look plonked on! :)

So, that is going to be my quest from now on. Every time I see a card with an interesting sentiment, I am going to note it in a notebook and lets see if my cards improve!

Details - stamp Hero Arts

Cardstock - scraps

patterned paper - DCWV

I markered straight onto the stamp to get the coloring for this stamp, isn't it cute?

This is sooo absolutely beautiful!!

I have a problem with sentiments as well. Often, I will leave them off purposely so that I can stamp the proper sentiment when needed.

Just an idea.
