People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

A Thousand Winds of Memories

Hello, hello!

I'm typing up my Thursday post and my card is sitting here beside me drying. I had the original card designed and made a couple of weeks ago. When I had picked up my December Stamp of the Month (SOTM) stamps from my favorite local stamping and paper crafting store (Hello, Simple Pleasures in Colorado!), I was fully intent on making birthday cards...and I did!

Then two nights ago I was looking at my card, thinking about Valentine's Day and had an idea...yeah, well, you know the saying about 'best laid plans' and all?

To make a long story short (you can read the longer version and more on the making of this card on my blog)...this picture is NOT my first attempt at getting the idea in my head wrapped around this project...

Also available as Stickables.
...but I am persistent.

Fluffy clouds, shiny balloons and recent Life events inspired this card. I'm glad I decided to  'go with it' and reimagine my original idea.

This is definitely a better IRL (In Real Life) kinda card!
Have you recycled an old idea into a new or improved one? Tell us about it!

I'm sure it was great...
