One thing I am discovering as I continue to seek out what it means to "let go and hold on" (see Monday's post) is that sometimes the process of creating a card just takes me way too much time. I feel like I have to have every little piece in the perfect place and by the end of my creative session I am drained...and honestly, frustrated with the process. Being a perfectionist does have its disadvantages! Today I exercised my ability to just put something on paper and be happy with it without going through a rigorous process of deciding whether I like this or that. What a great feeling to get er done in a snap! And it helps a ton that I like the final product! ;)
First I simply grabbed my favorite Designer Series Paper pack called Schoolhouse. Such fun prints!! Next I searched Pinterest really quick for a card sketch that would get me going in the right direction. Then I grabbed a stamp set I knew would be great for an 8 year old birthday boy and before I knew it...I was done! Quick, easy, painless...and fun!!
