Quick post

This is just going to be a real quick post.  It is late at night and I am about to collapse for the night, but I wanted to put something on here because I have promised myself that I would not just stop doing this.  My problem is that I look around at a lot of other blogs and think "I'll never be that good". And when I look at the cards that other paper artist post on their blogs, I get intimidated.  But I have decided that instead of letting this stop me from doing something I really want to do, I will use it as inspiration to make my art better.  So thanks to all of you paper artists and other bloggers that I have visited in the last couple of weeks.  I will get better because of you.
Meanwhile I am posting a card that I made for a friend of mine for her birthday.  I was walking by her desk at work the other day and saw it hanging on her office wall.  I asked her if she would photograph it for me so that I could post it here.  It is very simple but it was fun to make. I hope you enjoy it.


  1. I like your originality and work! No need to ever feel intimidated. People have different tastes and what catches one person's eye may differ from another person's taste. And this has nothing to do with the artist's talent.

    I'll be visiting again...

  2. I love this birthday card! Something about the simplicity speaks volumes. I know what you mean about being intimidated -- I'm the same way when I view quilters' blogs and web sites. But you know what? I quilt because I love it, and whatever I do is good enough for me. I may not win any awards, but who cares? It's still fun!

  3. Thanks for the great comments. Yes. sometimes I find that my best cards are the more simple ones. I have to learn to do what I love and not worry about how it measures up to other peoples cards. Hard lesson to learn sometimes. I look forward to other comments--it is very encouraging in this new venture.

  4. I enjoyed this card too. I tried my hand at cards once...not so much. lol Keep up the great work. I'm sure whomever receives them will enjoy them greatly!
