Time for a Coffee Break


You may have noticed (if you come to my blog very often) that I mostly use A2 designs for my cards and rarely do fancy folds or unusual shapes. There is a good reason for that. I have a difficult time photographing any cards that don't fit the A2 format. So I just don't make them.

But... yep, there's that little word that stretches me from time to time... BUT... the new International Art & Soul Challenge is...

 Nothing Square or Oblong.

Did I mention this theme really stretched me!?!?!?

What's a crafter to do? Think outside the norm and let creativity be the norm. Oh, and having a wee little coffee break doesn't hurt either.




Here is the inside of my card:



And there's definitely no time like spring/summer to take a break, so this card seems to fit the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop theme, too.



I hope you'll get creative and participate in the challenges, too!
