Loving the Challenges

I've entered a couple of challenges and now I'm loving them. It is a lot more fun than I thought. Thanks to Pegmac and BeckyTE for encouraging me to participate. Below are a couple of cards I made for two different challenges today. Click on the link to get the recipes. Hope you enjoy them ...

This first one is on a Barely Banana card base. It has a little more of a yellow tint to it than ivory does (for those that don't know). It looks a little drab here because I am the worst photographer, no, really!! The circles are perfectly aligned within each other regardless how they may appear in the picture. Click here for the deets.

I distressed this one. It gives a shabby chic look to the card, which I love. This little stamp I found in one of my drawers and had forgotten I had it but thought it worked perfectly with the design and Prima. Click here for the deets.

I LOVE the colors on the second one. They are both really pretty though. Diane told me that she was so touched to get one of your hand made cards. Love you and hope you have a good week!!

I love your cards! So glad you like doing challenges!! The piercing on the first card is awesome and the way you placed the flower on the second one is grand!!

Blogging Without Obligation

After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
