Hello...Do You Like My Hat?

It's funny...what inspires us...even the littlest thing can spark a bit of creativity...and our mind wanders and we can end up just where we need to be!

Like this:
I really want to make some samples with things from the new Occasions Catalog...
I loved the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set and I'm so happy the image in this new set has those cool circles...gotta use that...and it looks so cool embossed...so let's do that
Oh...and I want to add a heart...but it looks kinda boring...hmm...but I like the color
I like the embossing and the layers...
it needs something...and I have to use this new twine...
and I need a sentiment...
I miss Kenneth (my youngest grandson)...and we need to read Go Dog Go (Dr. Seuss) when he's here again...he's so cute when we read the line "Hello!  Do you like my hat?"...
Aaaah...it doesn't have to be a stamped sentiment...just use hello from the Greetings Thinlits...cut it from the Silver Foil Sheet...like it...
oh...and use some of those pieces from the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon that have been piling up...put them on the heart...
Done...love it.


Now...I didn't add some thoughts...like the ones about the dirty windowsills...or my internal debate about taking a break for a piece of pie... or a few others that truly weren't useful...
and most wouldn't look at this card and think of a three year-old boy...or Dr. Seuss...or dogs or hats for that matter...but I will.

And I did get a piece of pie.  
 
 As always...

  2. This is such a fun card! And I loved getting a glimpse into your creative process. (And now I want pie and feel guilty because I have dirty windowsills. The guilt will pass after I eat some pie!)
