Gotta make some cards!!

Saturday, January 3, 2015

First project of 2015

Why is it when I have the time to sit in my craft area, I have absolutely NO MOJO????  

I got a 4x6 Pad, found some sheets that I could possibly make some cards with and looked at them.  I looked at them for a really looonnggg time.  Nothing happened.

After a while, I thought, Valentine's Day is coming up.  I should try to make something for Honey.  He has ten employees that he is over.  So, I sat *again* trying to think of something.  I then proceeded to search on the net something.

I came across this blog and thought, that's cute.  I can do that, I think!  LOL!  The hard part was trying to find a die-cut image from the Cricut cartridges I had that might work.

At last, I did create a rough-draft.  I'll cut the rest since I have all the measurements and buy the candy.  Now my Honey will have something to give his work Peeps on V-Day!!!  Maybe I can come up with something of my own creation before then.  If not, that's okay.
