Go Carla! (I also lack confidence in what I produce, but I keep trying to improve...and my recipients are always so gracious!)

Ann, your cards did not look amateurish, but I know the feeling of thinking your cards do not measure up. But I've been in 3 swaps now and each time I learn something new that makes the process more enjoyable. Each time I'm a little happier with my results. I haven't received any cards that I haven't been delighted with! So I hope you'll give it another go!
p.s. I highly recommend going to a bookstore and perusing some of the card magazines! It's been a great way for me to break down the basic elements of card creation and see how I can transfer those concepts to digital. It's challenged me to learn some new techniques along the way (and makes me extra glad for my space-saving, super flexible digital supplies!)I have a lot to learn but i'm having fun with it!

Yeah, you can find lots of inspiration on youtube --- Dawn's Stampin' Studio AND Chic N Scratch are a couple of my favs!

Ann I stumbled upon this thread while looking for another and have to strongly object as the receiver of your VERY first cards! They were lovely, I used both of them already and each recipient was delighted (as was I)!
I understand a little of your distress as I too, still don't quite "get" either the hybrid cards or ATC techniques and feel a bit at a loss when making them.
But, please don't discount your efforts, truly - I loved yours that you sent me. K?
