Gettin' made

I had been putting the finishing touches on my workshop preparations (read: Aaarrgh! What am I going to demonstrate?! *panic*), when a stray sheet of striped So Saffron Prints Designer Series Paper Sampler strayed on to a stray sheet of Blue Bayou cardstock ... I know there's a lot of strays and straying going on but it's my euphemistic way of letting you know that my workspace is a little (read: a lot) chaotic. When I noticed this lovely harmony of light and dark and complementary colours, I thought "Ooooh! That's nice!" and resumed my workshop panicking planning. Or so I thought...

The idea of bringing these two sheets together in a card just niggled incessantly at me the whole time I was trying to create a couple more projects. I mean, in the midst of all that panicking and planning, for the niggle to register, it had to be pretty insistent! I tried chastising the cardstock with "Stop pestering me you...Blue Bayou..you!" Needless to say, it just looked at me dolefully (after all, it is always blue). I tried turning over the sheet of striped So Saffron DSP but it didn't help as it was double-sided! When I couldn't stand the distraction any longer, I decided a card just had to be made.

So, here it is, a marriage of Blue Bayou and So Saffron. May their bond last long and true - a testament to Stampin' Up! glue:

Hello Kylie, Kerri and Marcia! Thanks so much for your comments - I promise to respond to you properly after my workshop today ... I'm still panicking!

Dani Fender said...

Don't you hate when you get an idea in your head and you can't let go of it, no matter how hard you try, until you do something about it? I'm glad it turned out so beautifully. The colours do look amazing together.

There was no need to panic - you were great in the workshop, Lin Mei. Do you mind if I post some pics of it?

Lin Mei said...

Hello everyone! Sorry to have been MIA...panic is over and the workshop was fun with the lovelies who came, and to the lovelies who have commented...

Kylie: I'm looking forward to your CASE even though it'll make me envious!

Kerri: Welcome to my blog and many thanks for the encouragement! Do you have blog that I can visit?

Marcia: Congratulations on the smooth relocation of your blog. I love the new look!

Dani: Yes, I do! It is not often that I am driven to distraction over something creative. I am hoping that it is a sign that cards are being developed in my subconscious and I just have to be there in body for the cards to manifest themselves. Yeah ... I know - I'm must be dreaming!

Belle: Thank you for the affirmation :) Feel free to post pics of it as long as my face isn't prominent!
