Happy Wednesday!

Today I am posting the other half cards of the digital background cards that I posted a little while ago. These are not my favs!

And... I am posting a card that I made using the Unity March kit of the month! I made it to send to a special young lady! She received it a long time ago but I haven't posted it yet because it looks a little better in person (I hope). It is bright bright bright! And... I wasn't too happy with the picture of it that I got before I mailed it!

Anyway... here they are!!

Hope you guys are having a great day! Things are good here! I have worked a little bit on blog hopping the past couple of days but am still not 'caught up'! I don't know what is wrong with me... I haven't been in the blogging or blog hopping mood... or even the card making mood lately! Guess that means I am in need of a little break! I am really in the mood to dig in and finally get my craft room cleaned up and out. I am in the getting rid of stuff mood.... not just in the craft room... everywhere!!

I have plenty of new stuff to show but it is all Christmas stuff! I have worked a little bit on the current PC call. However... I have managed to not let it consume me and most nights.... I don't make anything for it at all... or anything at all for that matter! So... that is progress for me! I think I am actually done with what I will send in to PC. I am kind of out of ideas/inspiration so unless some strikes between now and the deadline... I am cool! :) Feels good! I had fun with what I made... a lot of fun. At this point... if I try to make more... it seems like it will be more like work so... we will see how that goes! I am really trying here people! :)

I did real well on the CARDS call and another call... I sent in previously made submissions for both.... woo hoo. I did have a couple of new Christmas ones that I sent in because they looked like they would fit better with CARDS! Anyway... enough chatting! :) I just wanted to let you know since I posted my late night rambles that I am doing really well with the submission thing! I find my mind focused on the things that it should be focused on! Thank you God!!

Peace and Love!

Digital is a bit difficult for me to work with, as I like dimension and layers, but you've done a fine job with the first two. The colors really pop off the white background. Hope the recipient liked your last card too, it loos like fun!

Sounds like you are feeling and doing better with getting your craft on - it's always nice to be recognized for good work!

Like the cards, like "listening" to your late night ramblings. Glad you're more comfortable with the submission process and are having fun with it. Fun is where it's at, right? Why do this if it isn't fun? Now I'm off to eat a chick or a rabbit before I go to bed. :)

Dana Gustafson said...

Yay YOU! You go, girl! Can't wait to see more Kelley in CARDS!

Vanessa said...

Super cards! And you know what? Because of you I am trying to be more relaxed about the submissions. I do have days where I don't make cards for the call either! And I don't feel bad about it! Thank you girl!

Love ya!

Jeanne said...

While I'm not feeling it with the first two, I sure am loving that last card, Kelley (hope you don't mind my saying that)! It rocks, big time! Love all the sparkles and its brightness.

Glad you are in a place where you are having fun with your creativity. Yay! Good luck with your submissions.

It's springtime, and I'll bet you've got the same urge (as I do) to spruce things up. It's work to get through it, but it sure looks good when you are done. Happy spring cleaning to you! *Ü*

Cute cards Kelley!

Winter said...

Cute cards! And Autumn LOVED her card SO much! Thank you for thinking of her, it really made her day! And yes the card looks Amazing in person! :)
I have been Spring cleaning and I too want to get rid of everything! I am going to drop a BIG load off at Goodwill this morning!
I totally forgot about the CARDS call! I haven't made anything for the PC call either! But you know what...I still survived! If I make something...then I make something! Life is just way too busy right now to sit and make cards. Chance told me last night that we meet with our tax person Monday morning! So you know what that means? I have to work my butt off to get them done! :)

Stephanie said...
