3/4 complete #4 The Red Set

My thought for today comes from The Complete Pocket Positives:

A positive thinker does not refuse to recognize the negative,
(s)he refuses to dwell on it.
Positive thinking is a form of thought which habitually
looks for the best results from the worst conditions.

I will be more positive...I will be more positive...I will be more positive...
I am trying.


I am linking these cards to
A great site for folks like me who don't necessarily have time to participate in challenges
as much as I would like to. Thank you so much Michelle!

Almost Finished! 4th Post...The red set...(...the last set for now...)

I know you are probably wondering why I used that darn leaf folder each and every time. Well, you see, it was NOT the only folder I used, but at the time
had just taught me the technique, and I wanted to try it with every Stampin Up shade of ink I owned (not really that many). This folder worked the best, so I used it the most. See. Simple.

These are my 3/4 completed cards. I just came up with this easy layout and I complete them 3/4 of the way. The last part will be completed when it's needed. I'm going to show you the card now, and again at some point in the future. When it is needed it will be customized for that occasion whether it is birthday, thinking of you, congratulations or sympathy. Then you can see exactly what I am talking about... Here's the 4th and last installment for a while...

I konw these cards are almost all the same. I just wanted to try different flower centers, and two different ribbons/trims...

Next card post is a totally different direction. I think you'll like it.

Thanks so much for your visit today...I greatly appreciate it! Thank you especially for your comment(s)...
