Daring Cardmakers-Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Posted by manicstamper on March 3, 2007

This week Tracy aka Bondgirl challenged us to go outside our comfort zone and I have gone so far out of mine that I shall need a map to get back.
The resulting card is going to haunt me forever as the ladies who come to the classes I teach know very well my feelings on Teabag Folding and will pull my leg something rotten about this.

So here it is……..not my finest moment in cardmaking I have to say…….lol!!!
Anyway……I’m sorry I have neglected the Blog for a couple of days but I have had quite a lot going on at home and work and have been absolutely shattered. I’ve not done any stamping so tonight I am going to stamp me little heart out and use all the new goodies that have come to live at my house this week……’ll find out what they are as I use them and post the results. I daren’t list them all at once as I would probably give myself a heart attack at how much mahoney I’ve spent.

Have you gone outside your comfort zone yet?

Go on………………..I dare ya!!!

    So pretty & totally original design. Reminds me of seaside holidays as a child & the small windmills we were given for our sandcastles!
