You Color My World


Happy Friends with Flair Friday!!!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful week.  Mine, well let's just say I am glad it's coming to a close and hope the upcoming week brings better health and holds an abundance of pain-free, productive days.  I have been praying for it, so I know it is just around the corner...simply have to be patient. :)


Since I haven't been feeling very cheerful, I thought I would attempt to create a cheerful card.  I used the same Unity stamp set from last Friday--You Color My World from Unity's Itty Bitty Collection.  For an itty bitty, it has loads of creative possibilities.  I absolutely love this stamp set!  I have another idea in the works...hope it comes together like I am planning.  We shall see...


I was going for a carefree, childlike card...with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...something simple and fun. Mistakes?  No worries; children don't get too caught up in that.  It is simply all about the joy of creating.  Glad I was in that mode of thinking, because this card had more than its share of oopsies.  Originally, the rainbow was going to be colored with crayons; but to my surprise and dismay, I have no crayons...I know...the horror!  Then, I opted for watercolor pencils...quick and easy, especially with shading...unfortunately, I pulled from the wrong jar and grabbed a color pencil instead...oops!  Too late to turn back now.  Then, to top it all off, I personally think it would have come out better had I used a larger card base...that way it wouldn't look so busy or cluttered.  I feel like there is too much going on for such a small space.  What do you think?  Think this may be a do over.  Hmmm...


Well, I will not bore you to tears with my blabber.  Thank you for dropping by, for all the encouragement you provide, and for your sweet comments.  I do appreciate it, as I know how busy lives are.  Have a wonderful Friday and a glorious weekend!!  :)

Smiles and Blessings,
Carolyn
