Having Faith

Hello there

We've all been there right? When you know you have to get a card out that day and it's the same day your inspiration has taken a holiday...
I had one of those days on Monday .. I needed to make a card for a friend's birthday (a special friend needs a special card right?) But my head was empty of ideas. I searched my files for inspiration, trawled Pinterest, visited loads of my favourite bloggers, fiddled and faffed with things on my desk and NOTHING sparked my brain....sigh

When I get those days I whisper to myself that I WILL get this done and it WILL be just right... I have faith, if not in me, in some other power... It worked


She loves green and I was amazed to see a new addition to her beautiful collection of ornaments.. a pair of silver and black elephant candle holders...


And she loved her card that took virtually a whole day to come up with haha!
The wreath was cut on my Cameo and I used distress inks, water and Vibez snow storm for the BG


All in all I was pretty pleased with the result ...Now I have to have faith that I get everything done that needs to be done for Christmas

Enjoy your day!

Beautiful Ros!! I can see why she loved it..so soft and pretty and the little Ellie is adorable...you have the pretties backgrounds you do, too!! I need to get my Cricut fired up, every time I read you have used your cutting machine, it inspires me to get mine going...but I need time..sigh!! Yes, I too have a big "the creativity has left the room" time...it came back full force yesterday, lets hope it stays!

After all your deliberations you certainly ended up with a brilliant card. So, so cute. It's that time of year when we have to remember that it will all get done, but the fear that it might not is always part of it. :)

It may have taken a while to come up with the idea, but the end result was so worth it...this card is just adorable Ros! I had to have this set when it came out and I have yet to use it...shame on me! I just pulled it out and set it on my desk to remind me, so thank you for the inspiration!! This is one seriously cute, cute card!! :0)
