It seems that lately

things have been preventing me from making many cards. I keep telling myself that I will make the time to at least stamp a few images so that I can turn them into one or two cards. But, before I know it, the whole day has gone by and I feel as though I have not accomplished anything. It took me all week to make these three cards, but at least I did got them finished. And, now that I think about it, I did accomplish something positive. I will be entering these cards into this months challenge on the Hero Arts Flickr group. For the "time for thanks" card I used the following Hero Arts Stamps: Graph Background S5435, Big & Small flowers CL374, Blossom Art CL495, and So Thankful CL466.



The Hero Arts samps that I used for the Sunflowers card are: Three Sunflowers S5420 and Find Joy CL497. The Hero Arts stamps that were used for the butterfly card are: Silhouette Grass S5316, Antique Engraving CL383, Envelope Pattern S5507, and Everyday Sayings CL342.

Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate the comments. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Sue, I know exactly what you mean! I waste so much time thinking about what I want to make and before I know it hours have gone by and then I am out of time as there are other things to do! But, you came up with 3 gorgeous cards Sue! I love the colors you used, so perfect for the upcoming season! Thank you of the lovely comment and thoughtful message you left on my blog! Hugs, Brenda

So glad that you made three cards,Sue! Each one of them is so beautiful and detailed! Hope you get more time to create..I know sometimes you/we are just not in the mood. So you can't rush it, right? I love the third card as it shows so much depth and textures!

Your cards are so pretty, Sue! I, too, struggle with finding time to sit down and make cards. I am always busy doing something else! Mornings are the best time for me to feel creative; so the earlier I get started, the more productive I can be!

Hi Sue- love the 3 cards today- they are all fabulous! I made 3 cards yesterday and it took me all day- lots of distractions pulling me away!

Do not concern yourself too much on how many cards you make in a week Sue, the important factor is that you enjoy the process, if it takes you one, two or even three days it does not matter, you will find time; it will present itself, creative people always get there in the end, so, to your cards they are gorgeous, you do very good work.
