Needed to paper scrap so I made some cards

I think this is one of my most favorite cards I've ever made. It's got a lot going on compared to my usual... but I love these colors. The papers are all from Taylored Expressions May kit. You have probably noticed I've been on the same color scheme lately... it's all part of this kit.

This card is from another kit.. and also out of my norm a little bit. I'm not a big inker... I love the look, it just never looks right when I do it. I always feel like it just looks sloppy when I ink edges, but I keep trying.. those crafty cardmakers that do it so perfectly keep making it Look easy.. I figure one of these times I'll "get it". LOL

I've been focusing so hard on my Art of Digital Design class that I'm to the point of burn out. I needed to get back into my craft room and touch some real paper and create, therefore, I've been on a card making frenzy lately. I haven't even taken the time to do my digi weekly layouts. There's just so much time involved in this class that the last thing I want to do when I have free time is do I'm taking a bit of a break. My brain has learned/absorbed about all it can handle the last four weeks... we've still got one more week to go before class is over, then its testing time... don't get me wrong.. the class is great.. but I really needed to just get back to the fun of things, touch some paper and just make something without the objective of "learning something"... I don't think I'm going to pursue trying to sell my digi creations.. seriously.. it takes a TON of time. I like the process, I love learning all the awesome techniques... but I also love scrapping (digi and paper).. and I don't want to take it and make it a job, I like to do it when I want and just go willy nilly..not have to "perform" on demand. So... my hope is to create some things when I have the time and inclination and offer them as free downloads (if anyone would like them)... and keep my passion for scrapping a hobby... not a job. I'm sure I'm rambling at this point.. I guess by writing it out I'm giving myself permission to CHILLAX.. and remember this is supposed to be fun... not stressful. :)
