NEW ALTERED KEY CARD

I tried a softer color on my newest altered key card, along with a portrait format instead of landscape. It was more of a struggle this time and I'm not sure if it was the colors that were not jazzing me or if I simply didn't have the creative edge yesterday. When that happens I usually need to stop and just look through magazines or cruise the web to get the juices flowing. Other times I simply have to put it aside, sleep on it, and start again fresh. This morning I was able to add the words and touch it up a bit. Back sides absolutely have to be arted up with the same color, but there I add words or thoughts to finish the piece. This one has the complete thought: "In a sky full of stars it's amazing to find that each is one-of-a-kind.

Kathy ~ you are hysterical!! when I crawl into bed I am sooooo aggitated that I cannot stay up one minute more to create like I did in my 20's, and 30's. Life and work get in the way and I feel so far behind most everyone in our groups. Not that it's a race, just there are so many ideas and so little time. Maybe that's why the 1X1's seem "do-able" they are tiny and can be finished so easily. Do you need more time or just motivation? I will mentally send you both, how's that?! ~ Cindy
