Oh Nuts...


Why is it that when I need to make a special card for someone I freeze up and instead have all sorts of ideas for designs that have nothing to do with the business at hand?  And why do so many of them seem to be slightly inappropriate?  Today I finally gave up on the card I sat down to make and instead followed through with the silliness that popped into my head.  And you know what?  As soon as this was done the other card cooperated and practically made itself.  Clearly sometimes I need to just relax, go where my crazy brain takes me and trust that I'll end up in the right place at the end.

I'm going to play along with three challenges:  



(Cat or perhaps cojones!)
