Design Team Tuesday

Hello everyone, 
Lisa Arana here with a couple of cards to share.

The creative mind is such a funny thing.  
When I was making my card for today,
it ended up turning into two cards!
What? 
I'll show you what I mean.

First, I have to tell you.  
I'm over the mood, head over heals in love with this new stamp set.


 

 
 I still don't know which one is my favorite.  
But the quotes and sentiments are just as fabulous as the images.



LOVE that bicycle stamp in GREEN!  I was going for more of a masculine card, hopefully that BIG red polka dot bow doesn't scream too feminine.  ha.  I also think this is my favorite quote.  Did you know my maiden name is Dahl?   So I might be a little partial to the author.

So how did this card turn into two?  Let me share how I used all the leftovers from the creation process of this card.  This is my card from last week's FWF.


I kid you not, I thought I was going to use almost all of this on the previous card.  Well, the flourishes, the label/sentiment and that toothpick flag.  But when I started to add them on, everything just looked like a jumbled mess.  I loved all the little pieces and couldn't bare to toss them aside.  So I went back to the more simple card and started anew with this one.  
 
A two for one, sweet!


Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
Hugs.
