I'm Blue Today

Friday, January 1, 2010


I've been trying to use up designer series paper.  I love to buy it, but I have a problem using it.  I hope I'm not alone in this affliction.  I have long had a fascination with paper:  I love the way it feels, I love the way it smells, and I love the way it looks.  So, for all those reasons, I buy it, but then I just want to look at it rather than use it.  And I know on some level that this is wrong.  I shouldn't be afraid to use it.  So another of my new year's resolutions is to use the paper.  Embrace the paper!  Don't be afraid of the paper!  Love the paper!  Anyway, I made this card using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  And I didn't even flinch when I cut the paper!!

I am that way too with both dsp & embelishments, got to have them but then I hesitate to use them, I think that I will save them for something special! loL! You are not alone! Your card is lovely :)

You're SO not alone in that affliction!! I was that way for a long time, then every year when we got a new catalog I gave away all of my retired dsp, and I was so sad that I hadn't used any of it! Now my goal every year is to use it all up before it's gone :) Btw, you've been on a roll lately! Loving everything you're creating :)
