I don't know if anyone else does this, but because I make lots of cards for charity, sometimes my inspiration for new designs dries up. Especially on the sympathy cards etc., Anyway I buy magazines with designs of cards I like - take them home .... bearing in mind I have just spent nearly 4 quid on one card design ... put the magazine down and never actually get around to making the card!!!
I bought Making Cards back in January 2007! There were two cards in there using the Stampendous agapanthus stamp. Both cards were designed by Siobhan Fyffe. Well my other trick is go out and buy all the stash I need to make the card and then still not make it!!! Usually at a cost of a lot more than 4 quid too!!!
This time I am pleased to say [drum roll please] I have actually made the cards. The designs are fabulous - so whoever and wherever you are Siobhan Fyffe - THANK YOU.
I had to make a few minor adjustments [due to lack of stash!] but on the whole I am delighted with the cards.
