Tag Tuesday once more and Louise (Kard krazy) wanted us to use left over scraps from our cards.
So seeing as I have quite a bit (like many of you) I thought I would see if I could put one together, it is more of a challenge than you first think.
I had some vintage paper over with this Santa face, I thought it was too big a image for a card, but a Tag well it could work!
Added a snowflake that was lying in the tools tray as was the holly, found a bit of tulle, and a pearl. Have to own up to making the Greetings text though, but I suddenly had a brain wave, more like an tsunami really. It is New Years Eve tomorrow for us (you do realise that NZ is the first to see the New Year in.!) So it was very appropriate to see out the old and let in the new on this Tag.
Very clever of me don't you think? I will add that it is first thing in the morning here, and a glorious day, all conducive to good brain waves.
It may also be that I have had a few days break from making cards, I did post my 5 favourite Xmas cards which was no work, but I have to tell you that while I was sorting out what 5 to post (which was really difficult. Like Dawn I could have picked 10 easily.)
I found it was better than being in therapy to look back on what one has created over the past year. You look at the cards in a different way; critically for sure, but you also realise how good you are at this Art!!! So one should never be afraid of acknowledging and recognising one's talent and to feel good about it.
Sharing and giving of the creations is the icing on the cake, as there is always a positive reaction, it may only be one comment, but that is all it takes to inspire once more and lift one's spirits. So to all who do take the time to comment know that it is always, always received gratefully.
And with that I will leave you and wish you all,
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR WITH
GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS.
Smiles :) as always.
