I Think the Secret is...

So, I have mentioned before that I don't consider myself to be a very good cardmaker!  What I am lacking in natural talent, I make up for in pure determination.  Overachiever...

I made it a bit of a personal goal to make cards more regularly and try to be as creative as possible.  I think the secret to a great card is having a great ribbon to finish it off!  I also think that having one unexpected element helps!

So here is a recent card using new Teresa Collins goodies!


I used the Posh collection for all paper elements!  The clock is handcut from a sheet of paper using the Timeless collection!  Ribbon from my stash (haven't received the TC trim yet, but if I had it, I would have used it!...gorgeous).  The unexpected element is the color combo.  Love blue and yellow with the Posh collection!

The TC design team has its own blog to show off all of Teresa's great designs and products!  These ladies rock so check it out!

I completed this card for a challenge over at The Nook where we lift one member of our community each week.  The Nook girls...Danni Reid and Ingrid Danvers...plus the rest of that talented team...hello, I better improve my cardmaking skills!  Those girls are rocking the card forum...you should check it out if you are like me and are looking to improve skills or if you are already a pro!

I am pledging to make more cards and if you don't see me doing that, kick me or something...LOL!
