It was one of those nights where ideas and thoughts were not flowing very freely and I couldn’t decide which stamps I wanted to use. I finally decided to break out this circular image from Everything Eleanor; I had never used it before. Next, I paced back and forth between my shelves of stamps, trying to decide what to put in the center. Nothing felt right or made me happy. I picked up For the Birds with the intent of using the image of the nesting bird; but, then I thought, I could change the ornament in this bird’s mouth to a heart and use the card as a pseudo Valentine. Once the bird was skating in the middle, the card finally started to flow. It now had a “snowy” feeling, so I pulled out the Northern Flurry embossing folder for the Island Indigo card stock. The card was feeling a bit more whimsical than I had planned, so I changed the DSP to this Watercolor Wonder pattern. A quick 2-1/2” Real Red punched circle and 3 small gemstones were all the card needed to be completed and I was actually quite happy with the finished result!
