Art Journal Challenge #21

OK, "your redeeming qualities", this weeks prompt for the Art Journal Challenge at Emily's site. I have to admit, this was a hard one, I found it pretty hard to name some qualities about myself..... still I'm done pretty early!

Tried to be a bit creative with the computer, cause I still don't like my own handwriting on a card..


The world wide web is very useful sometimes, so I looked up the meaning of quality.. and printed it on the front of the card. Added some bling bling flowers, boy, do I love the Dollarama!

In Word I created some textboxes, used different colours, and tried to find some good qualities about myself. My DD mentioned 3 before she had to rush for school.. is it that bad with me.....?? Anyway, this time I used Junkitz papers, the Black and White line, love it! Because I don't have the cute birdie stamps, I copied one from a piece of pp, and I just totally love it!

Another thing, this Saturday I altered a tin I had for a long time, and guess what, my cards found a place to be put in.



Am so very happy with this, and I just love the Crop a Dile, which goes easily through tin.... so I could add little flowers to it!
