For me I find these classes terribly inspiring, but also I must say that sometimes having a few craft projects on the go at a time can help. At the moment I have cardmaking (obviously), I am making a quilt for a Christmas gift, an off the page album of my 40th (eek), and now I also want to get started on some smaller gifts for Christmas and the end of year. I know it sounds hectic, but along with eating on the couch the kids are good with finding their washing in the baskets so I save time there too! But I do find that the more you do, the more you actually get done? So for good measure I have signed up for a 3km fun run that I need to find training time for. Let me tell you now it is unlikely I will be blogging about that one!
Anyway the good folks at Simon says Stamp are running a great event called Stamptember and I happily joined in by placing a nice big order with them. Unfortunately I haven't received it yet as it does have a way to travel, but I have certainly been getting busy with all the inspiration from the card class. Since they are asking to see what everyone has been creating this month I thought I would link it back to their blog to share. So whilst it isn't an "inky" type of card, I certainly was covered in glitter.
The card below is inspired by Kristina Werner's card where she used DSP on an angle to create a really great background. So I thought about it and did something similar for my card, however instead of using DSP I used different types of card stock with textures and bling. The recipient of this card is certainly a "bling" kind of girl, so hopefully she will love it. I am super pleased with it if I can say that without sounding arrogant, but I am!
thanks for dropping by,
