This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room was to make a card using warm colors or stripes. This is the first card I've had time to make in the last week or so. My mojo isn't completely working yet, so I'll be honest and say this card is okay. I have to be zeroed in on a project when I'm working on it and my mind just wasn't clicking for this one. I have a huge list of things I need to make for some special friends and a special mini that I want to start so badly, but haven't yet. I'm trying to balance out my card making with my scrapbooking and I feel like I'm letting my YouTubers down.
I wonder sometimes if I will ever discover how to prioritize and figure out where I need to focus my crafting as well as balancing it out with family time. If any of you have learned how to do that please let me in on the secret. LOL I don't know about ya'll but when I get into a project everything else just comes to a screeching halt. There has to be a middle ground.
One area that I am focused on though is the Papercraft Star Challenge Blog. Being a part of the Design Team is so exciting! Tomorrow is the official start day and I think those of you who have checked it out and decided to play with us will really enjoy yourselves.
Don't forget about the Forum too. The message boards have some great info on things like the Cricut, SCAL, Copics, and there's even a Forum to ask any questions you may have about the Design Team projects that will be posted every day. Kristina and Beth really want this to be a great source of sharing crafting information for everyone. So take a look!
My card is pretty simple in design. The hardest part was painting the chipboard and then hitting it with my heat gun to make it bubble up for texture, and tacking the beads onto the ribbon. Pretty easy.
