Thinking of You Using a Card Map


When I just can't seem to create a card from scratch, I use card maps.  I used this card map by Create with Connie and Mary.  Using card maps can be a challenge, but the rewards (creating your own card) are worth it.  I give myself an F on this my first try.  But wait to you see my second card!

I walked away from my desk and later decided I needed to give it another try.  This card was in dire need of an overhaul.  This card took less than 15 minutes.

Ah yes, sometimes it's best to let it simmer for awhile and come back too, had to do it many a time myself ;). Both cards are pretty, but I must admit I like the second better too.
