Good Sunday to all….can you say EASY-PEASY?!?! 🙂 

I need to be honest, I feel like I am in a “creative blue”. Friday was just a L O N G day and I simply did not have the energy to blog yesterday. Friday was Bud’s funeral and naturally I was sad, but it was a beautiful tribute filled with “joy” (darn, I love that word…so short yet so powerful)

Being in that “creative low” for me…I decided to make a “blue” monochromatic card for you! When in doubt…pull it out! What am I talking about? I find that when I am in a “creative block mode” I go to stamp sets that always seem to pick me up and just “work” 😀

This stamp set, Watercolor Words….does that to me EVERYTIME….(it should be called old faithful) and I also decided to play with the Freshly Made Sketches this week as it is one great sketch!

 

 

 

When you look at the pictures you can see…1 stamp set (watercolor words), 1 Ink Color (night of navy), 1 DSP (Floral Boutique) and it works! There is no need to stress (yikes, look who is calling the kettle black as I have been in a slump) I used the Aqua Painter and took some ink from the top of the lid of the ink pad to lightly add color.

Do not be afraid to keep things simple like I did today. It works and the variety of colors that you could use are endless. I happen to think that the DSP, Floral Boutique is as classic as it can ever get! I think that there are times that we look at papers and say (for example)  – “flowers are not blue” like this….but throw those concepts out the window – we all seem to overthink things…just try it!

I adhered the larger flowers (after paper snipping them out) with “green glue” and then POPPED the entire sentiment and flowers up…that ALWAYS adds the instant WOW.

Fast, easy, classic and FUN! What are you up to today? I hope that whatever you do, “joy” is in it. I am having a workshop with Jeanie and doing the Tin of Cards Kit. I know that there are going to be instant smiles when they get to go home with 16 cards….WOW!!!!!

 

After the workshop I am planning to come home and start to open up the Card Swap Cards. I know that it is funny that I do not “sneak a peek” because I know if I do – nothing would get done…as you all are soooo darn talented!

 

Remember, jammie shopping is always on trend…..HIT that paw print and have FUN!
