Have You Ever Felt Butterflies in Your Stomach?

I gush with delight because this card came out perfect!  Finishing this card made me feel butterflies in my stomach… LoL.  It took me months to figure out my style and I will never stop repeatig myself… I’m a clean and simple girl.  Well, sometimes I’m a little dirty, but nothing that a little soap won’t fix… LoL… and I’m not implying soap in my mouth. =)

I often get feedback from friends that they are not creative.  Well, I hate to break the news to you darlings, but neither am I!  Everything I create comes from an inspired picture or fabric.  As simple as a tiled floor gets me thinking, “hey, I could cut paper and make it resemble that!” =)

I challenge you to simply buy one stamp set (and ink if you don’t have it)… yes just one!  I will send you enough paper with a layout, so you can recreate it yourself to make FOUR cards.  You will be very surprised and a little beside yourself.  You will say, “SELF, I CAN MAKE A BEAUTIFUL CARD!”  This I promise you.
