Frozen

Are you like me and sometimes sit frozen...staring at lovely patterned paper and fabulous stamps but do not have anything to jump start your creativity? How about trying out a simplified card sketch?
Today on The Project Girl's blog, I'll show four versions from a card sketch that I designed as a Creative Contributor. All of the cards feature products from Jen's Lost & Found Two Collection from My Mind's Eye
Here's a sample one of the cards:



I invite you to take a look at the other three cards and the sketch over on The Project Girl's Blog, perhaps it is just the sketch needed to finish up those last minute holiday cards...(like me.)

  1. Raising my hand here, Karen! Patterned paper constantly has me stroking it yet too afraid to administer the scissors to it!
    Off to check out your fab cards and maybe, just maybe, pick up the courage to cut into some DP!

  3. When I read the first few words Frozen are you like me... I thought to myself frozen because it's sooo cold? LOL! :> Actually it's hardly cold here like usual! Love your card and your use of pattern paper! :>

  7. Oh I hear you... sometimes it's just best to walk away, I'm confident that if you go fold laundry or do the dishes your creativity will return and the housework will have to wait.
