Burning Love!

I must be crazy - that's what I keep telling myself.
Here I sit, another day up in my crafting studio (I just fancied it up for you.... its the attic) sweating like I just ran a marathon... AND I DON'T RUN.

I must REALLY love what I do.
That, or I AM crazy. 

We are in a tornado warning to boot.... shouldn't I be cowering down in my basement, in the safety of its cool darkness, sneaking beer from my hubby's fridge in his man cave? 

Instead, I worked hard today, because I am sure I have bitten off more than I can chew. But I'm gonna chew it. I have found another outlet/market for my cards and in order to have stock, I have to work. So here I sat. Many glasses of cold water. And many trips to the bathroom.

I also worked on this card for the latest Can You Case It challenge ... and it WAS a challenge! You would think black and white plus another colour is easy, riiiight? Well...NO! I hated EVERY paper I had today. That's right. Every one. I couldn't find a thing I liked. So... I made my own!

I ended up using some Momento Ink and randomly stamping the flowers from SU's Crazy About You and Flower Patch stamp sets. For the sentiment I used Lovely Amazing You...from the stamp set of the same name. 

And I needed some OOOMPH.... so... I hit that Crushed Curry INK and added a splash of it to the sentiment, along with using the dotted ribbon. Meh. I still wasn't feeling it, so I added some subtle "bling" jewels to the little daisies. 
Sometimes "keeping it simple" makes me crazy. But these challenges are definitely keeping me on my toes. :) and now.....to the basement.....
