My struggle and my guilt....the wanting to create, but there is always something more important to do. I just read a story of a girl that all she did was write. Her stories were the ones her teachers kept as samples, she wrote for a column, she blogged, etc. She just loved to write. She called it her gift. Well, I like to make cards. I don't know if I can call it a gift, but I do collect a lot of paraphernalia in order to create cards. I'm always rushing to get my chores done so I can create a card, but usually I'm exhausted by the time I'm done. Such is my dilemma....I'm finding it difficult to balance the must do things with the I want to do things.
So when my Mom's birthday is around the corner it's a great excuse to put the must dos on hold, because Mom expects a handmade card and let's face it we don't want to disappoint Mom.
My Mom loves Tweety Bird and I have never been able to find a Tweety Bird stamp or digital cut anywhere, probably do to copyright, trademark stuff or whatever. So this year I decided to just create my own.
The card base is actually a die from my favorite designer Stephanie Barnard. It's her new drop in card framelit. This one is the Lovely Drop Ins.
I took it one step further and decided to decorate the inside of the card.
This is also a die from Stephanie Barnard called 3D Flower Drop In.
Well I do hope my Mom likes the card. Now back to the must dos so I can then play some more.
