It’s All In Our Perception… {Head}

It’s all in our perception…. how we look at something, how we perceive it starts in our heads!  Today’s CAS card for Senior Stampers reminded me of that and was good for a laugh or two too!

During the Senior Stamping sessions, the card sample is placed in a protective sleeve and set on the table as a suggestion for them to follow when creating their card.  Last week I heard some giggling from one end of the table as one of the stampers removed the card from the protective sleeve and propped it standing and open on the table top.1casseniorsperceptiononecreatedbyuLOL… it may have been rotated 180 degrees with the sentiment at the bottom… but either way it was cause for giggles.  They thought I had glued the sentiment onto the card incorrectly… NOT that it couldn’t have happened that way…2casseniorsperceptiontwotherealcardcbyuBUT… My card was made to stand vertically.  More laughter of course as they realized the card could go either way, it was just a matter of perception and where/how they decided to place the sentiment!3casseniorcardwithbirthdaygreetingcbyu213Isn’t it funny how our minds can play tricks?  It’s all in our heads!  I hope you enjoyed the quick and easy simplicity of today’s card, and look forward to reading your comments!

Oh, Sharon, such cute creations! Love the happy pink card you made just before this blue one. Pretty with the all the layers and colors - that white decorative punched paper looks wonderful used in this manner. Love the blue layers on the ribbon in this card, and that the sentiment image can go in any direction. The little candle beside the verse is super cute! (and your recipe Chicken Angel Hair Pasta Pesto looks YUMMY! hugs, de
