I've been at the Shopkeeper Gal's today. Buying some bits and pieces for me. And for a workshop. When I unpacked my bag from Saturday's crop (this morning), I had a good tidy up. The link between these two activities becomes clearer, honest! I was rummaging in the pocket of my tote bag and found an old, scribbled sheet of sketches for cards. I do this occasionally when I'm struck by something in a magazine at the Dentist or somewhere odd. And inevitably, I lose the sketch somewhere.So, I used my 'found'' sketches and made a card for the workshop which is to be based around a main colour theme, and then realised I could use a similar sketch to enter Chrissie and Mandi's challenge over at their new blog, Less is More. And I did. I just did it without faffing and thinking too hard or maybe putting it off because I should be doing other stuff...(and I should). I made it because I wanted to. That was fun!
Now I don't know if this will truly qualify, there's the right colour combo and there is a 'less' feel to it, but maybe the card stock itself is too busy...too 'more'. I dunno, Chrissie and Mandi can decide! Either way, am pleased that I took five minutes out to make it. Which makes it a success anyway huh. The card stock by the way, is from the inaugural Creative Escape scrapbook convention organised by Heidi Swapp and Mr Bazzill. It's only taken me 4 years to get around to using it!
