Pinwheels

Extend.
It's one little word that I can apply to almost every area of my life, but today I've applied it to my cardmaking. Yes...very occasionally I do make cards :)

Today I stamped, and even used some never-been-out-of-their-wrapping stamps! Now that IS extending myself!

The pinwheels are from a set from Stampin' Up called Sweets for the Sweet, and they are so cute!

I haven't recreated the wheel here (I never do, truth be told), but I have used Perfect Pearls for the accents, which is also extending myself a bit LOL....baby steps, right?

Today I have also rediscovered the technique of hand colouring my stamps, so I'm off to play a bit more...who knows what adventurous new thing I might try! Bahahahahahahaha!
