I was fortunate to go to part of the fantabulous SU Convention in May & especially grateful to see SU founder & all round amazing lady, Shelli Gardner's stamping presentation. If you read Shelli's blog post, you'll know that it didn't go quite as she had planned, however she shared many wonderful ideas. One project I really loved was a very simple but elegant & clever card made with the Bright Blossoms set from the Autumn/Winter Mini. So, when I was making a card for my lovely friend & fellow demo, Leanne, I decided to case Shelli's card. I'd show you the original but my pic turned out terrible. It's very true to Shelli's design though, except for a bit more background texture.
Back to Shelli's presentation for a mo. As I sat with around 500 other demo's watching Shelli experiencing what what is probably my worst Demo nightmare, I was so impressed by her grace & sense of humour in the face of disaster & that she just kept going. I think everyone in the room wanted to hug her & tell her that it was OK, as we all mess up sometimes - thankfully, not always in front of 500 people. It was a much needed reminder to me (as a self-named 'disorganised perfectionist') that we're all human & not perfect....& that's OK...both in SU & life in general.
Anyway, I digress....as usual. I hope you like Shelli's card as much as I did. If you have any q's, just let me know. Thanks very much for visiting & I hope to see you here again soon.
Inky wishes, Di
