In my previous post, I shared my little card + envelope duo, based on my husband's passion for cycling, combined with a quote by Eddie Merckx, a professional cyclist: "Ride. Lots." Those two words truly are secrets to success: to get 'better' at anything, you need to do it - to practice, to try, to persevere - lots.
So, when the doubt crops up, I entertain the mood (for a bit), and eventually remember: these challenges are about learning, growing, trying and having fun!! They're about stretching creativity, about exercising perspectives, about creating 'personal bests' and especially, about admiring and learning from the expertise of fellow card-makers. They're about doing what we love. Lots. They're about taking risks. Lots. Most of all, they're about having FUN. Lots. Because, whatever we wind up making, in some small way, we truly do brighten someone's day when we share. Pep talk done - time to get this post posted!!
Here's the inspiration sketch:
Here's my card:
A little twinkle, a little star...and a whole lot of love!!
Just "because," I made a 'companion' card...here's the twosome:
Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you days and nights filled with twinkles, stars and love!!
