Making time to create this week......

Do you have time to create, but don't do it??  That is how I have been lately.  I honestly have quite a bit of time to sit down an play with my paper crafting "stuff".  BUT I find my time getting wasted on the internet, between blog hopping, searching for ideas and new techniques or just talking to my friends and family on Facebook.  Then there is the laundry that calls out to me, or the dog that wants to get played with or those darn kids when they get home from school wanting me to help them with school stuff and what not.

This week I have had to force myself to create something each day.  I chose to create cards.  What I really need to be doing is working on a unit meeting project that I am having a hard time coming up with an idea for.  I am running out of time to submit my idea and project dimensions......guess I should get to working on that next!

I am still working on papers from CTMH's Fanfare Level 2 Paper Pack and the coordinating embellishments.  The colors Pacifica, Cranberry, Sunny Yellow and Sky with bits of Black are SO BRIGHT and CHEERY to work with and I am having the best time playing!

The guitar is from Star Power.  I stamped it first in Black on the White Daisy background paper, then stamped it in Cranberry then cut and pop dotted just the guitar over the black.  If you click on the photo you should be able to see the dimension a bit better.  The brad in the center of the guitar is from the Fanfare Level 2 Assortment.

Supplies used:
Paper: Fanfare Level 2 Paper Pack, Black CS, Sunny Yellow CS and Cranberry CS
Stamp Sets: Star Power, Say it in Style
Inks: Black, Cranberry
Embellishments: Red Sparkles, Fanfare Level 2 Assortment (brad)
Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Sand Paper, Edge Distresser and Corner Rounder (to create scallops)

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!

I hope that this has inspired you to make more time to create.  Get off your computer and get your stamps, papers, embellishments and scissors out and PLAY!!  As soon as I am done with this post, my computer is going least for a while.  LOL

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!
