Yesterday I was fortunate enough to have a few hours all to myself. I was so excited to have some uninterrupted crafty time and happily settled down at my desk with a nice hot cup of tea. That was my first mistake – I will never put a drink near the project I am working on ever again! Yep you guessed it I knocked the cup and destroyed my card.
I am proud to say I handled it very well and decided just to start again. What followed was a disastrous couple of hours of misplacing a stamp I was using (it was literally there and then gone), stamping a crooked sentiment, a paper trimmer that literally ate my paper and to top it off I even got a paper cut! In the end I gave up and decided it was dangerous for me to touch anything else. I was clearly in some sort of zone but it was not the “crafty zone”.
Fortunately today is a new day and I was able to finish off one of my creations this morning even with a toddler crafting next to me.
My layout is inspired by the current sketch at CAS on Sunday #89
I was also inspired by the colours and use of twine at House of Cards August Challenge
I am still loving this Papertrey Ink stamp with the beautiful ferns. It is so versatile and seems to work in any colour scheme. I also had so much fun with these colours as they are not tones I would normally go to but it is always fun to create out of your comfort zone. I’m just hoping for no more craft disasters for a while.
Thanks for looking! Em
