With a whole day to myself, after catching up on my chores, I retreated to my craft room. This felt like an earned treat after ironing, vacuuming and destinking the kitchen sink ;-)
However, rather than put myself under lots of pressure trying to meet challenge deadlines, I thought I'd fish out some images to play with and see what happened.
Before I came confident enough to use all the stamps I had (! - definitely still learning) I mostly used paper crafting kits and upcycled old greetings cards. Lots of that still hanging around taking up space. I guiltily flicked through and picked out half a dozen images, one of which was this die cut centre of an old Christmas card. Most of the images have now turned into cards, quite a few for Christmas, and mostly using layouts from sketch challenges for which I hadn't managed to meet the deadlines. Very satisfying.
So there I was, minding my own business, and before I know it I've got a card I'm really proud of, and what do you know, it meets a few challenges all by itself!
