Halloween in May?

Sometimes I hit a creative wall. I know you all know what I mean! I just can't think of any new or original ideas, but I still feel like crafting.  It's times like those I take a stroll down memory lane.  I look at old cards I made that I really like, or cards that make me cringe.  From there I usually come up with a new spin on a favorite card, or I find ways to improve those not-so-amazing ones. Pretty much I CASE myself. 

For example, remember this card?

This was one I liked. It was a mini 4x4 card and I thought it would be fun to do a larger version. I know, I know, it's May so why am I doing Halloween? I don't know why, but when I saw that old card I immediately thought of my Houndstooth stamp.  So here is new spin on my old card. Now that I have a more clear sense of my style it's fun to re-do old cards. 
The next Shhh Mommy's Hiding Video will be up Friday. I attempted to finish it up today, but certain little people wouldn't let me :)

  1. Oooooooo!!! Love! I was thinking yesterday about how people do '12 Kits of Christmas' where they make holiday cards each month... well, I'd only do that for Halloween. :) Your card really is so much more your style now - more bold & graphic, less detailed and intricate perhaps?

  6. I do remember that card, and I love the cased version too! I believe I made a card that was similar yet different when I saw yours last year.
