On Sunday 11th February it is my parent’s wedding anniversary and as usual, I have two Wedding Anniversary Cards to make. As well as making a card to give them from Michael and me my Dad always likes me to make a card for him to give my Mum. Of course, she is well aware that not only do I make it but I also wholly design it, so basically it is two cards from me, one with his name in.
As I am not feeling particularly well today, I decided that I wasn’t up to experimenting with new techniques, so I decided to play safe and use cardmaking collections and then maybe add die-cut extras etc. once the project is on its way. I don’t know about you, but I find the worse I am feeling the less inspired I am, but then when a project starts coming together it makes me feel a bit better, and then I get inspired. Proof I think that not only is creativity “good medicine” but being crafty improves your creativity. The collections I am going to use will be Hunkydory (no surprise there) and a Joanna Sheen collection from the artist Barbara Anderson that arrived in my order from Create and Craft last week. As I begin, I haven’t decided which card will be which. I will see how they shape up and make the decision later. Today I am going to share with you the Hunkydory card and next Monday the Barbara Anderson with the final decision which will be from who!
