I Probably Shouldn't...

...make cards while migraining and on rescue meds. But I did. Because my brain is now in 'fuzzy' mode, I'll get right to it.

Card number one goes to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Sunday Stamps. I created my own background with different stamps and inks.



Here's my take:


MFT stamps and leaf dies, and an MFT rectangle. A couple of EH flower stamps, and a Verve Sentiment. The gray and blue panels are scraps. A smidgen of twine and done.

Next card is going to visit at Inspired By:


I was inspired by the berries, the colors, and the circles in this delicious photograph.


I used all scraps for this. I die cut panels with a ME curved border die. It's the same Verve sentiment, because it was out on my desk, it fit the white panel, and because I like it. I added a few flat red sequins to honor those berries on the inspiration photo. EZPZ lemon squeezy. And now I need to go see if I can find my brain. It seems to be missing...oh wait! That's just my normal, lol! As always...

Or maybe you should stamp MORE when you have migraine fuzzies - these are AMAZING! I love the colors and clean construction of the first one - so sophisticated! Beautiful second card, too - wonderful details! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

I especially like your curved snippets card. A wonderful masculine card, I'd imagine. tfs

I love your clean card with opposite colors of the color spectrum. Really makes your leaves pop. Thank you for joining Sunday Stamps this week.

Two very pretty cards Bev, I am so sorry that a YKW found you. With the barometer up and down around here these past few weeks I have been struggling trying to fend them off. Last week I had an emergency trip down to my parents and didn't have my meds with with me and it found me. You did well considering what you are feeling!

That Inspired By. . photo stumped me, Bev, but your interpretation is so graphic and lovely with the curved colored panels. I love the all over background stamping on the other card and the mix of colors.

You had me chuckling, Bev ... even though you were feeling so yucky ... hope you've kicked those migraines into touch by now! Yellow and blue ... so very you ... and just the prettiest, whimsical-iest background! Cool, crisp, graphic swooshes of colour ... so stylish and really rather handsome! Miss you, my sweet friend! Big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

I am always amazed that you can create such beauties while having migraines / being on heavy meds! Adore the color combo and layout of the first card but I am totally blown away by the modern and graphic look of the second one. So, so cool! I declare it the winner (too bad I have no say in it...)
Since I am way late with my comment I hope you are feeling better by now!
Hugs,
Susanne
