♥Making cards has never been one of my favorite things to do. I know some of you love it, and are really really good at it (which is probably why you love it), but it's just not my thing.
I had an idea in my head for this birthday card for my mom, and now that her birthday is past I can share it with you. I must say I am happy with the way it turned out, but it wasn't something I threw together in 10 minutes time. I think I could have put together an entire mini-book in the amount of time I spent on this. (Not that Mom isn't worth it...I'm just sayin'...)
Tonight I put together a card for my grandma for Mother's Day (yes, it's coming up this Sunday, though I know my UK friends have already celebrated it this year). The card has to be in the mail tomorrow so there's that pressure, and I just couldn't get it right. I know we all have those times...it's so frustrating...
My craft table is an absolute wreck right now, so I think that could have been part of the problem - maybe that's blocking my mojo. And the stinkin' cat would not stay off my table. Even when I brought it out to the computer table, Whiskers came along. Poor light for this photo, but the paper does have a vintage, off-white tone anyway. Even though I have fussed over this card, I know my grandmother will love it. (The photo is of her as a baby with her mother - my great-grandmother.)
The Mother's Day card I made for my mom didn't photograph well at all, so I won't be sharing that one this time around.
Ugh! I just read over this post and I think it conveys that I'm kind of in a crabby mood. (ya' think?) I'm mad at card making. Maybe I'll just whip up a batch of cookies...I'm consistently satisfied with that...
