This is my last card from the spring class that I've been blogging about lately. Although it makes me a little sad, I have to say that on a positive side it's what brought my cardmaking blogging mojo back. I can't wait to show you the cards I've created since then. I don't know how you feel about the statement I'm about to make but I would like your opinion on the matter: this craft of creating cards that we share trough our blogs can really help you work through what I call "funk times". For me, forcing myself to go to a class and make these cards really got me back to where I needed to be. To have an image, color it, and work with a design and beautiful papers to create a finished card is what I needed. I recommend it to anyone that falls in a creative rut, if its in your hands, sign up for a cardmaking class and get your hands to work. In my case, it made me realize how much I enjoy doing this, and since the teacher had everything ready for us, I didn't have an excuse of having to select paper or images or even embellishments. I just concentrated on getting back to what I love most: coloring, selecting which side of the paper to use, gluing it and applying embellishments to it. My intention was not to bore you with what I said. Hopefully it may help someone that may be feeling like I was. And now here is the card, enjoy!
