My Heart is Still Beating....

Just another way of saying, hi there, I am still alive and kicking!  I think I am just too distracted with so many things and so much going on and then at the end of the day I'm just too tired to get to my blog.  Excuses, excuses.....  So let me share the card I made my hubby from Natasha (and I).


I used a variety of designer papers to make this card.  And some dies from PTI, the Heart Die is from Lawn Fawn.  The little Chevron stamp was in one of my PTI sets.

Still trying to figure out this Art Journaling journey I have embarked on, perhaps doing way more browsing than actually putting ink to paper!  Why must all the great Mixed Media artists and Art Journalers be in the USA and the likes, it's just too far to go for advice!  And I am a practical, hands on learner.  No matter how closely I follow a video tutorial, let me tell you, it never, ever comes out the same!

But, I still love everything I see from all you talented crafters, you definitely keep me believing!

Have an awesome day!

Sounds like you're going through the same thing as I am - I watch, learn, love it all, then go buy the products, wanting so badly to try it, but I end up chickening out! I am trying to just play but so far nothing comes out the way I want it to - ugh! We will both just have to keep trying!

Love your fantastic card - bet hubby did too! Sending hugs to your Bren! :)

Adorable card Brenda. Life does tend to take over at some stages in our lives. I've been looking at lots of Art Journalling too, but haven't picked up the courage to actually make a start!

Hi, Brenda!
What a FUN post title! I'm so glad your "heart is still beating"! You crack me up!

Love the DARLING card you made for your hubby! What FUN details & lovely colors. I'll bet Natasha & your hubby loved it!

Creating should be enjoyable...I wouldn't stress over your Art Journaling. It should just be a time for playing. So just create, play, & ENJOY...whenever you have the time. ;)

Hugs! ♥
