Moving Forward.

The other night I attended a fundraiser hostessed by my wonderful up-line, Heather Summers and her awesome son, Mark. It was a fun night of crafting, visiting, snacking and shopping, and all for a great cause.

In our fundraiser kits we received the stamp set "Moving Forward" and all the materials needed to make 10 lovely cards!

But To be honest with you, before the fundraiser, I never really gave this stamp set a second look... I know that's awful, especially since it's this year's Ronald Mc'Donald House Charity stamp set. But after creating the beautiful cards designed by Heather, I realize it's quite a cute set!

Heather's cards also reminded me to step out of the norm and do something new, you know... maybe "move forward" with my crafting.... For me, I need to remember that not every card has to have an image with a mat. I feel like I've been doing the same old, same old. Seems like every card I've created lately has had a rectangle or a square with a mat. Well I'm happy to say that I moved forward, out of my rut, and I'm actually quite happy with the outcome. I didn't stamp my image on white, in a square/rectangle and no mats! What do you think?

Are you in a stamping rut? Try doing the complete opposite to what you would normally do. You never know what it may inspire you to create!
Have a great day!
