She Ponders....





I have enjoyed a creative sunday......


this card was made using the blue beauty collage sheet from june at dezinaworld....I love the vibrant colors....I used the collage sheet to digitally create this using printshop22....


its been rainy here most of the weekend so not much time outside....today I made a huge pot of homemade soup....good thing is I've got supper for tomorrow night already done!! When I make a big pot like that we will eat on it for a couple of days then I will freeze what is left over......its a great idea for those nights when everyday life is more hectic than usual, just grab it out of the freezer and heat it up!!! quick and easy....


then I played around with this image of the little football boy from cora at digital2fortuesday....

I think this turned out well....a great card for that birthday boy.....

had to resist the urge to frill it up....so kept it pretty simple knowing that flowers and ribbons and such probably wouldn't be what those tough little guys would want...lol....

Got a few more things started but they still need a few more touches....is it just me or does everyone suddenly get a mental block when your in the middle of creating something.....I start out having an idea of what I want to do,and knowing that along the way I'll make several changes until I get something that I'm satisfied with.....but sometimes I have to leave it half way done because I cant decide what I want to do next.....then later,maybe an hour or a day, and sometimes a week I'll go back to it and can finish it off easily.....guess I just have to step back and ponder-like the lady in the top card-and clear my brain (or what little bit I got up there!!lol) to see what the project needs....

Thanks for stopping in and have a good day.

Love your digi-piece Betty! I can completely understand the whole concept of 'changes' along the way - if you could see the state of my desk!! I think my biggest hang-up happens when I'm doing textile pieces - they seem to have their own ideas sometimes...!!!

Hi Betty, Again all your little creations make me smile. Unlike you, when I come upon those mental blocks to creativity, I usually say I'm going to come back to it and don't. If it is something I don't get finished pretty quickly it seems to sit and sit for months and even years unfinished. Must be a form of mental illness:)
