Warm up cards??

11Valerie11 posted a fun Try a New Technique challenge on SCS today - to make little 3x3 warm up cards! The idea is that you can finish a 3x3 card in ~15 minutes, and it gets your creative juices flowing for your bigger projects. Hmm. Nice theory! Being the ultra-slow stamper that I am, these little sweeties took me far too long, and now I'm way too tired to be warmed up to do anything but sleep!! :-) They were a lot of fun though, and this was a perfect challenge for me - I've been meaning to make some 3x3 cards to have as hostess incentives at workshops. Voila! I have three of them done now! (thought I'd be able to pump out a few more tonight - HA!) (What is it with me and always underestimating how long it will take me to do a card or scrapbook page?!?!) :-) Tonight I finally played with my Double-Line Doodles set that I got at the SU Regional in Houston back in February. This set will be in the new catalog in July - sorry girls, you'll have to wait a bit for this one! I also focused on my Palette O' Prints (which I *love*) and stuck to those four colors throughout. Ok, thanks for looking & goodnight!!
