Santa & his reindeers!



Here is something else we made at our SU workshop. It's such a cute set! I've made so many mistakes on this card,my sentiment isn't centered,and 2 of them I've put the red cs too high. I was trying to hurry up,cause I felt pressured. There was one project per table,Shannon and I went from one table to the next.Like everyone else that was there did. Cause you always go to those things with a friend.

So I felt like I had to hurry up so I didn't make them wait. I won't do that again. After we we're all done our projects,it was so early,we could of stayed a couple more hours. So next time,I'm taking my fine time!!!!

Three more xmas cards done,woohoo!

Have a wonderful week everyone! Hugs,Diane

oh i know what you're saying when you're pressured, that's why i'm not demoing (am i saying it right) my cards...LOL!

I love the layout of your card...cute!

Lorie said...

Your cards are very cute no matter where the red is! You should never feel pressured when you are at a SU! function. Maybe talk to your demo about it so she can play with the tempo of the night a little. Hugs girlie!

Cute cards Diane, dalring set! I have only been to a couple of work shops and there was a couple of things I didn't care for, one being it started at 9AM on Saturday morning! I don't do 9AM's unless it is a doctor appointment! Then there was the time pressure, I was last to finish and had to take two projects home with me! I like to take my time and enjoy the process, I am in no hurry with my life! So I understand how you felt!
I think Lorie's comment was a good one,to talk to the demo! There are demos and there are demos! I was not impressed! I love SU! so I fumble along on my own! It is hard too, although SCS is great, I am a hands on visual type. Nonetheless, I love to create!You are doing great! Hugs, Deb

Very cute cards Diane no matter what you say!! pththt! but I hear you......The more often the demo says ...."no rush girls" I feel super rushed!

Courtney said...

These are cute, but you're right, enjoy your time, girl! That's what stamping is meant for... not for pressure!

Alexandra said...

I think it's adorable, no worries - it does not have to be perfect!!! I never rush my gals when we are at a workshop - I set the pace from the person who sets the longest time - I want EVERYONE to leave happy and like they had fun!!! Talk to your demo, nobody should feel pressured!!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

The cards turned out cute! You would never know the red cardstock was too high if you didn't point it out. It looks great the way it is!

Lovely work Diane!

Shannon McGann said...

These look wonderful, Diane! I know I always hate it when there's pressure to go as fast as you can! They turned out great even with the rush!

I attended one SU Workshop awhile back and it was setup the same way and I felt rush too. Your card is cute no matter where the red is, I think it looks fantastic as is.

I think it turned out great! Most people don't even notice that kind of stuff

Dani said...

Quit being so hard on yourself! LOL! You did a fab job, so cute!
I'm sorry you felt pressured. Sometimes I think we expect too much out of ourselves and it takes away from the fun. Just take your time and have fun, if anyone has a problem waiting for you, send them to me. I'll straighten them out! LOL! :) Hugs!

Love 'em and a great start on your holiday stash!
