Be Creative!

Crafting Forever, Stampin' Up!, Hand Stamped, Watercolored, Handmade Card

When I'm stumped for card ideas, it sure is handy to have that bits box available! I didn't have any idea what to do for a card today because I've been busy organizing my pantry. Well, let me back that up a bit. First I was going to clean out the refrigerator, but before I could do that, I had to move the stuff off the kitchen counters to make room for fridge stuff. But before I could do that, I had to make room for it in the pantry. Sound familiar?

We moved here two years ago, and the pantry hasn't been purged/organized since that time. Let's just say there were things that expired BEFORE we moved here that somehow got packed and moved. What was I thinking?!

I know, I was so ready to be done with moving that toward the end, in the final scramble to be out of the house before escrow closed, we were just tossing everything in boxes without sorting. Here's the post about the move, if you're interested. I was without a craft room for FIVE MONTHS, so I couldn't "do something creative every day." I tell ya, it nearly killed me!!!

So, where was I? Oh yeah, no idea for a card. I had this image that I had colored while at my friend's house for our monthly stamp-together. And laying on my desk were scraps of DSP leftover from this card. Throw them on a couple of mats, stamp the greeting (I cut the stamp apart), and voilĂ  - instant card!
