Retired Set - Flowers of the Month

Last week I was asked to do a favor for my downline, Tina. (Love her!) She was asked to come up with some ideas for some retired sets of one of her customers. One set, was definitely not one of my favorites. It had sketches of cats and cat stuff. I think one was some yarn. I tried and tried and tried to work with it, but I just couldn't. Nothing wrong with it so much but just not my style. I have been saying over and over again that I am trying new things, and that style not being one of my favorite, I thought would be just what I needed. But truth be told, as much as I love cats, these stamps scared me. :o) To each his own though!

The other sets I was given, still not my favorite, but I was able to think outside the box though. And although this wouldn't have been sets that I would have picked out on my own, it was good practice to do something I wasn't used to.

So no kitties here today, but check out what I did with Flowers of the Month and the Matching Happy Birthday frames. And please, please, please, I know you guys are out there, tell me what you think, even if it's not your favorite!!!!
