Maggie, many prayers for your friend battling scary health issues - will be on bended knee and include her in my daily prayers. Thank you for thinking of her

After fighting with a card last night, I wanted to ask you all how YOU do this ... so maybe I can just provide the DOTW!

When creating your cards, or getting your layout idea, do you select the papers first and then color your image? Or do you color images (like ahead of time) and then add them to a card? How do you "design" the card you have in mind?

See, I keep picking out the stamp/digi, then I created a card around it. But lately I noticed I'm having a hard time getting things to 'fit'. So I try coloring the image first (I've only done this 3 times) and it's even worse, ROFL! Just curious as to what others do!

I always have my stamp or image first, then I pick out my papers. I usually will look for a layout next if I don't have something in my mind, so I can make sure that the papers I want to use will fit the sketch layout that I want to use. Then I color it and proceed to actually put the card together. I was told by a teacher that it's harder to color first and then find the paper to go with it and that's the way for me.
