To Design or Not to Design; that is the question?

Not much going on here today. I finally finished my card I was going to enter in TGF Wild Card Wednesday contest. I was only 1 day too late but late is late all the same. So I did put the post the card here on my blog so I could share it with all of you. Of course since I didn't get it in that does indeed mean I did not win the prize which was choice of any TGF Anya & Friends Sinlge Digi. Since my wish list is still forever long for both rubber stamp and digi's it is very sad that I didn't even get a chance to win. Then of course much to my delight and dismay they release new stamps/digi's every month. I will never have the entire set as my little heart does sooooooo desire!

So today I checked out the TGF Monday Mania Contest. So the card must include the colors: Olive Green, Pink, Dark Brown and Sparkle. You MUST also use an Anya, Ian, Wild Sprout, or Hope/Grace stamp to qualify to win. What does the winner win??? I have no idea, this was not included on the post this time.

Some of my friends think I have what it takes to design stamps. So I've been contemplating whether I really do have what it takes to design images for stamps on a regular basis. I know that I'm really good at making works of art with other peoples images. I can design the most fantastic cards, scrapbook pages and altered art items. However, I am not sure I can design images for stamps especially on a regular basis. And then there is the big question of whom do I design for. Mostly I'm scared as to whether I can really do it. So I've been doing some scketching and I will see what comes of it this year. If I am meant to design stamp images I know those dooes will open up at the right times.

I recently designed a set for TGF. I sent the designs in last week with samples. So I'm waiting to hear from Marie regarding that. TGF is going to CHA this week so I'm not sure how long it will be until I hear back from her. If the opportunity to design for TGF presents itself, I'm sure I could not turn that down because that would be the most incredibly and awesome offer ever.

So if you think I have what is takes to design images for Stamps leave comments to let me know what you think. I would love to do that but I'm scared to go for it mostly. I would hate to try something that I might fail at but I would hate not to try something that I could be great at. Help let me know what you think?
