Hi...Hello....Hiya...Hola


This is probably one of the simplest designs I've ever put together, but in creating it, I have to admit that it probably took several hours of mulling over exactly where to put the ribbon, what color ribbon to use, where to put the design background, and the placement of the "Hi" stamp. But when all is said and done, think of the possibilities you can do with this clean and simple layout!

I really need to use and take advantage of all the layout designs other artist do, because coming up with my own is extremely time intensive. I'm sure this is simple enough that it isn't new - just new to me. But as picky as I am about the way a finished piece looks, I wonder, tho, because I'd still fret over the colors and details!

Anyway, I'm putting it here to remind me to use this again in the future. It doesn't look like it, but that one card was a real 4 hours of work!

I should make about a-gazillion more to use just so it can pay for itself when I go to send a card to someone, eh?

Isn't it funny that sometimes the simplest cards are the hardest to put together? The next gazillion will be a breeze. :)

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...
