Clean & Simple Cheers

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Right?

I've always interpreted that to mean not just to make the best of a bad situation, but to stick with the staples and do what you KNOW works well.  Don't reinvent the wheel.

This card was my lemonade a few weeks ago when I was in a major creative slump.  Sometimes, you just have to go back to what you know best - and for me, that's a mashed up area with everything clustered in one spot, banners, twine, stars, and splatter.  


So while the card may be my usual, today's crush isn't - I was rather enamoured by this combo and rather proud of myself for using one of my barely-touched ink pads (Tempting Turquoise.)  So at least something was a bit creative!


Have a fabulous day!

  1. I love it! I haven't seen a slump in your creativity at all! But I certainly know what you mean. I'm leaving my two design teams bc I feel like I can't do "my thing" and my style as often as I'd like... And well you know - our time stampin with little boys is limited! I want to make my cards when I finally get time to play. Always inspiring, Shannon. Keep it up <3

    1. Thanks so much, Holly! I'm finally finding the light at the end of the tunnel and things are coming a little more easily again. So frustrating when that happens! Thanks for the kind words - cheers! :)
