Blogging out of Boredom + some card pics

I am soooo bored right now.  I can think of several things that need doing, but I don’t want to do any of them.  What I really want is a project.  I can’t really sew right now unless I clear a spot for my cutting board — which would require cleaning, and that’s not on my list of things I’d like to do.  I don’t really want to sew anyway.  Maybe I’ll break out the embroidery and listen to an audiobook.

I made cards the other day.  They’re really cute.  Have a look.

I got the idea for the overlapping black & white flowers here.  I colored in the flower with a marker, but I forced myself to avoid filling everything in perfectly.  I’m usually kind of ocd about that sort of thing, but it was easier after I’d done the first card because I already knew how good it would look.

(If you like cards and scrapbooking — or just looking at the pretty pictures — you need to check out that link.  This woman is incredibly talented.  I’m amazed by her drawing skills.  She should be designing stamps or something.)

I wasn’t sure I liked the bow, so I made another one without it.

I could have gone with a color in the background, but I like the simplicity of the black and white.

Normally, I don’t put words on my cards because I like to be able to use them for whatever I want, but you can never really have too many “Thank You” cards.

Okay, I guess I’d better put in a load of laundry if I want clean unmentionables tomorrow.
