A quick post to encourage all to slow down and enjoy the process of card making and making them well. (Notice I said well not perfect!)
As Christmas approaches at lightning speed I am finding my self getting sloppy. When I get pressured by time, or I should say lack of time, I don't do some things I know I should do to help my cards be the best they can. This card is a good example of that.
Can you see what I mean? You don't have to look to close or too long to see it. I have learned from past experience that I need to use my stamp-a-ma-jig whenever I am stamping a sentiment directly onto my card. Do I always do it? Obviously not! And the times I don't are those times that I am in just to much of a hurry to get out the tool.
I probably should just leave it out on my stamping table. Then I would have no excuse.
So this post is an admonition to myself and anyone else who needs it to slow down and enjoy the process of making a nice card rather than taking the time to come up with a nice layout and design and then ruining it with a lopsided sentiment!
What was it we were told: "Do as I say, not as I do!" Or was it, " A picture is worth a thousand words"?
