With the cold weather, I hav been hibernating and creating like a storm ....I just. can't. stop. making. cards! It's so comforting when I'm "in the zone". Sometimes I don't know if I like the cards themselves or it's the process that I love! Often I would just sit in my craft room, with my favorite radio music on and stare at my stamps, stashes of embellishments, paper, scraps ....and then some ideas just come without any announcement! Love that when it happens! Here are two cards that I made for no particular reason.
It all started with the heart stamp I have....I had quite a stash of embellishments collection. Don't you all? Perhaps it's time to get them out to play!? The plastic flowers and brads have rarely been used. So I decided that I will incorporate them into the design.
I think the colors of the flowers help bring out the pink heart and provide some more "eye candy". I also used an extra heart underneath to give it a bit of dimension.

I didn't have a "plan" when I made the following one....it shows, huh?
What I love about card-making is that there is NO RULE! Sometimes the bad accident can turn out to be a beautiful mistake! That seems to be happening to me on a regular basis. I am just too lazy to fix mistakes, so I make the "mistake" work! For the last card, I didn't know how to tie a perfect bow with the twine secured, so I used two Pattern Hearts to keep the end of the twine in place. I kind of like that! See? FIXED :)
