Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.
My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

Twins but not identical
I did have a lovely quote to share with you today, well it is more of a poem really but I have misplaced it. I am hopping mad because I kept it so safe, ready to type up today for the blog and then when I need it I can't find it anywhere. There is no point even trying to retrace my steps, I have danced all over this floor today (been busy crafting for a change... It felt so good too!!). Ah well, saved for another day now.
Ok, less words for todays post, but definitely more cards. I was making a card yesterday and because I love the papers so much I decided to make another card, different design but same papers.
Here is the first card I made, hope you like it.
Here is a side view to show the layering and the dimension. I tried to keep it fairly shallow for posting.
Well, I liked it alot but I had a terrible time with the decision for the matts. Did I want to do kraft matts or pink? Well as you can see, I went for pink...................... or did I?
I did, in fact, go for both! I was so taken with both colours for the matts that I decided to make a twin, but not identical thank goodness.
So as you can see in the following picture, the second card has the same paper and layout but I changed to kraft and used a different greeting also. I think you can probably see my dilemma as they are both very effective (although I am drawn to the kraft one alot! but please don't tell pinky or I may have a riot on my hands, these two have to share the same storage box remember...LOL!!)
Ok, thats it for today. I have a busy day ahead of me as my Grandson, Jake will be here at 8am, so I need to get myself sorted. Have a good day whatever you are up to.
Thank you all for the lovely comments you left for me yesterday. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Hugs Linda xx
