Love U

My card share today that is actually not for any challenge. As of late I find myself working on making 6-7 cards each week and almost always for a specific challenge. It's been a new way of approaching my card making this year, and while it means I haven't made any where near as many cards as I have in past years for OWH, I've not only been finding more pleasure in creating but the cards I do send are work I'm really proud of.

If you're part of the OWH family you've no doubt heard a lot about 'quality over quantity' and I can tell you from my own personal experience that there really is something to it. So take your time, think about every element on every card and give it your all. You might just find yourself enjoying your card making more than ever.

Happy Crafting!

Super cute how you "cancelled" the stamp! I agree...quality over quantity for our troops!

I like the large Labels Eight that you cut down instead of using the whole shape, for the white layer. I'll have to try that some time. Yes, I agree, the "creative play" and attention to detail (design and execution) make it much more enjoyable for me. And nicer cards for our troops!

Love your card's beautiful details and color combinations. I know someone will snatch this one up right away to send home to someone they love. Thanks for sharing it.
