Just a little bit of fun



Today was one of  those days that I was really missing my dad, I so wish I could have hung out with him today but I have to face it that it's not going to happen. In an effort to cheer up I made these fun cards, I put pen to paper and wrote my ideas down. The pencils in the card have been sharpened down to the size they are and the heart in two of the cards is traced from the cover of a heart shaped box. I am going to do the "c'mon baby light my fire" card with larger match sticks and see how it turns out. I have a few other ideas to use unconventional items in my cards with quirky sentiments, I will be giving them a go soon.

I have been blogging a lot lately, I am hoping to continue to do so as it keeps me positive and happy creating and I always look forward to reading everyone's comments after I have posted. Some people go to therapy, I create :) as I am sure many of my blogging friends can relate to. I have also noticed a few more followers on my blog, thanks so much for joining me on my creative journey and I hope you will be inspired with what I make and post.

The Challenges I have included-
Passionately Artistic-Anything goes in the linking party
Charisma Cardz-Clean and simple
Paper issues-All we need is love
