I've needed some new inspiration for my cards. I get bored doing the same old thing. I have a blog I follow that has tutorials - it is where I found the instructions to make the flower pot cards below. You can see the instructions here. Dawn's ideas are awesome and she makes it easy to follow the instructions. If you go to her home page, and click on the tutorial button, you can scroll through her videos and find ideas for all sorts of things.
I love the flower pot cards, but because I don't own a lot of Stampin' Up things, I just improvise with what I've got. I think I made the flowers a bit too small here - they don't look like they are filling the flower pot - maybe I'll add a couple more.
This shutter card was a lot of fun. I've made 3 so far. One I sent to my grandma, the other I made for my honey for Valentine's Day (don't want to show that one yet), and this one I made for my adorable nephew, Stephen, who will be 1 next month.
I have found that making cards is therapeutic for me. When I'm working on cards, all I think about is the design of the card and it really gives my brain a break from the routine of life. Plus, I know how good it feels to receive a card, so that makes me happy knowing I might make someone smile with my card.
