Hybrid Cards

I promised to post this card last week, but I lacked any form of enthusiasm to post it. I'm in this frame of mind where I have a gazillion ideas, but nothing actually happens. I've still been going to the gym three times a week, with the exception of last Friday as I had a haircut appointment. Very important! Because I've been physically a lot more active, I've also been a lot more tired and obviously have less hours in the day to craft. Anyway, I'm in positive minds.

I'm working on a commission at the moment for Scrapbook Inspirations. Unfortunately I won't be able to show you anything for quite a while as it's for the February issue. And Rebecca dragged me into making party bags for her belated party, which will take place during half term. I finished one bag and I must say it looks really cute.

Anyway, back to the card... This is a hybrid card. Robin Carlton, the owner of Sweet Shoppe Designs sent me an email asking whether I would be interested to join their hybrid team. It was a really tough decision, because it's such an amazing site, with cool products, but I couldn't seem to sell the concept to myself of printing off digital papers and then scrapping them traditionally. After much deliberation I turned her down. I would like to thank Robin for considering me. Oh, and I did have a go and made a card with one of their kits:

The none digital supplies are: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (Kraft) Clear Stamp: Papertrey Ink, Ink: Staz'On (Timber Brown), cord, Border Punch: Fiskars Uppercrest, Corner Rounder: EK Success, Circle Punch: EK Success, Pinking scissors: Fiskars.

My apologies for the delay in posting. Enjoy the rest of your week.

I can understand your decision and feel the same about it. I do like your card though. I think you did a great job on this hybrid card.

I can't get into the hybrid craze either. I don't mind digi stamps, but paper seems strange to me. We only have a b&w printer so printing my own paper wouldn't look all that interesting.
