No matter how hard I try, I cannot make the fancy, complex, multi-layered creations that so many other people manage to create on a daily basis.  My cards are simple.  I keep fighting it but the fact remains that I just don’t have the patience to make a 3 pound greeting card.

That, however, is not really the point of this post.  Sometimes – only sometimes (Depeche Mode!) a simple card that I make just turns out perfect.  Really, over-the-moon, I can’t believe it’s not butter, downright perfect.

Now you’re thinking I’ve created an amazing card.  It’s not amazing.  Nobody will ooh and ahhh over it but this was one of those rare moments when a card came out EXACTLY as I pictured it in my head.   There was no debate over where to add an embellishment or agonizing over the placement of the stamped image.  I cut out the paper and cardstock, stamped and coloured the image, blinged up some punched snowflakes (tips hat to Anna Wight), adhered it all to the card and voila!

I hope the recipient likes it.  This is a first time order for the customer and I wouldn’t mind expanding my client base! (there’s a notepad and ornament inside the tote box)

If I can take a decent pic before I go to bed I might even post the card on SCS.

Good night!
