On my mind

While my sewing machine was still out, I thought I do another card using the Digichick Girlfriend papers. No sketch this time but I was inspired by a card I saw on SCS. The layout or sketch is nearly always the first thing I decide on when I'm making a card.  Where do you start?

Here's a close up of the flower.

Here's the bits I used to make it.

Sometimes I wake in the middle of the night with an idea so by the light of the phone I make a quick note,sometimes the card happens from here but then othertimes it happens when I'm tidying away and gathering up disgarded pieces of stash,A card just springs to mind and before I know it I've got not only a whole new pile to tidy away but also a card made. I love all that stitching,I keep promising myself that I'm going to get my machine out more! Have a great week,Julie.x

Very gorgeous Julie. Love the flower!

I usually start by picking my papers or colour scheme and colour an image to match. My card hardly ever turns out like my initial idea. I change my mind a lot as I go along, and faff about! xx Jenny xx

Fabulous card Julie, again a super flower. As Julie said earlier, I also wake up with some ideas. Other times I browse through blogs, galleries, etc, until something catches my eye. Sue.x
