Warm Wishes.............................

Good afternoon everyone,

Well, it's Saturday and I am NOT working today for the first time in 2 weeks. Work has been just a tad crazy and I have not had the time to do what I love to do. Craft!!!!!!! I am afraid the all of my mojo had left me. :o(
I had such high hopes for this card when I found the sketch over at Just Magnolia this week. The more I worked on this card this morning the more I didn't like it. I am not sure just what it is....could it be the colors, papers, embellies the image???? NOT SURE...
I have cut out felt pieces and got out my needle and thread and made some fun embellies and not even sure they work well with this card. So I feel that I now have over worked the card. I would love to hear some feed back on this one. If you could take just a minute to leave me your thoughts.
have a great day everyone. I am going to go and clean house now as I am not very productive in my studio today.
hugs and blessings to all,

Papers: bazill card stocks, My Mind's Eye, three bugs in a rug, creative imaginations
Stamps: Tilda by Magnolia
Ink: Memento, copic markers, watercolors pencils
EmBellies: buttons , Prima Flowers, pewter heart charm, pearls, black metal photo corners, trim, sheer ribbon '

Card has been sewn. I have also used my nestie for the image to sit in. The image has been cut out and pooped.

Magnolia stamps can be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking and more.

I would love to hear your comments if you have a minute..

Well, even before I read what you wrote, I was thinking what a gorgeous card it was...and the flowers, wow, those are pretty and look amazing! Love the whole design...not a thing wrong with it! ~Hugs

This card looks pretty special to me! I love it. Very pretty colours, especially Tilda and great flowers. Can't see anything wrong with it. If you saw my blog you would see how talented you are compared to my poor efforts!!

Enjoy your time off, I think you need it!

Janny, hun, this is gorgeous (and I'm not just saying that). I adore those embellies you've made too. I've been staring at your card for a good few minutes, and I honesty can't find anything that doesn't work, or that I don't like. The only thought that I can possibly come up with (and I'm clutching at straws here!) is perhaps the sentiment is making the card feel out-of-balance to you? If you're not happy with it, I could give it a VERY good home, as I LOVE IT!! Hee hee! Hugs, Sem xx

Kathy said...

Are you kidding girlie!! Whe I seen it on my bloglist I had to come and take a look at it!! It is gorgeous!! Love the felt embellies and I think it all goes fabulous together!!
So you can jump right back in your studio and forget about cleaning!! haha
Enjoy your time off!!
