Valentine Bunny

Over the last few days I managed to find some time to create this little card in time for valentines day! Each card has been entirely handmade by me which means that I did indeed have to cut out (very carefully) the heart shapes! And to add a little bit of sparkle, each card is decorated with three tiny Swarovski flatback rhinestones. My card is now for sale in my DaWanda shop and there are only 20 available. I really hope you like it!

And in true Creative Thursday fashion, Phil and I have decided that this evening we are going to paint some pictures! Now I'm a little bit concerned about this because I haven't painted for a few years and like most creatives (or maybe it's just me!) I want to immediately be able to paint something I will be proud of! And I've realised that this worry or fear has actually been stopping me from doing something I used to love to do! Recently however, I discovered the perfect mantra for myself (and the perfect book) in Steven Pressfield's  The War of Art . Every time I start to procrastinate this is what I say to myself...................

"Nothing else matters except sitting down everyday and trying."
