Goodness me, this was certainly one of the longest hiccups in my blogging history. Can’t explain why, just the want comes and wanes at will. I go through periods of time where blog posts launch unasked in my thoughts and then there are the droughts where it feels like work. I certainly always welcome a bit of effort, a bit of push to feed here, as I think of blogging as journaling of sorts. I don’t want my posting to become something I feel obligated to do, or resent. I’ve had this happen with art projects where I’ve turned something I love into an obligation - I will always allow it to inspire me. I’m feeling inspired today. I will start with a simple card I created using some scraps of paper gifted to me by a dear friend, and I’ll share a few photos of lovely things in my world.
I don’t know the identity of this paper, nor the die cut but I do believe the stamp is Simon Says Stamp. Simple but bold, the paper being double-sided I cut 1 inch squares and embossed these with a tight chevron pattern. I added gems for the flower centers.
A bright and cheerful Sweet William which caught my eye today.
