Happy Thursday friends! My "Ah-HA" moment was the challenges this week at CardSwaps and OWH. On Sunday, OWH's weekly Sketch Challenge [#133] was posted and I knew right away it was a design I would use a lot.
On Monday CardSwaps posted their weekly Members Challenge. This week it's Stash Raid where you only use scraps from your stash. Like most of you, I have lots of scraps. [said with a degree of embarrasment] So I had my sketch and the recipe, but hit the proverbial brick wall. The scraps I was picking just didn't work for me. Blah I hate when that happens.
Moment of Ah-HA! Yesterday OWH posted their Midweek Throwdown using kraft + color. The light bulb popped on and I went back to my scraps for paper I originally looked at but passed up. And Voila! My finished card. Ah-HA! I love it when an unplanned plan comes together.
