My mind started racing when I first saw that the Pals Paper Arts challenge was red, white and blue:
What patriotic stamp sets do I have? Do I HAVE to stick with an American theme? Could I pull off a red, white and blue card that ISN’T patriotic? I knew I would have to sleep on it. I hadn’t seen any of the samples, but my mind was racing! In the middle of the night, it hit me! Eureka!
I have written this over and over, but I will say it again – I love a challenge. My most recent personal challenge is to make good use of a stamp set I (at first) saw no use for. When Betsy’s Blossoms premiered, I wanted nothing to do with it. I have forced myself to use the set, and now I am in love with it. Some of my favorite designs use this set.
Back to the challenge: in the middle of the night, I sat up in bed thinking, “Betsy’s Blossoms could make some gorgeous fireworks!”. As Pam said, “You need to sleep more often!”. Thanks…I think!
