Hello There

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a great week. I know I am.

Today I will like to take you into my wacky head. I know that I wonder how people come up with their card designs. So, today I will share how my ideas come to me.  There are a lot different ways my designs come to me.  One way is that I think of who the card is for. I try to put their favorite things on them. I will even ask them what they want on their card. For example I asked my little cousin what she wanted on her Christmas card. She responded with a horse. From that  little information I was able to pull something together. Another way I get designs are from challenges.  This is a great way to push your self.  The last way is sometimes an image just pops into my head. If I'm free at that time I will start the card. If I'm not I will draw it out in this little notebook I have. So this leads me to my card for today. This card just happen to pop into my head.
