Thinking Outside the Box

hello to all,
wishing you a happy monday and hoping you enjoyed your weekend.  i had a fantastic time. yesterday was a full adventurous day.  there were several things we attended and didn't get back home until late.  our thought for today is thinking outside the box.  if you know me and really knew me, i don't like doing the same thing over and over without change.  i'm easily bored and my creative mind will not let me stay inside the box.  wikipedia, the free encyclopedia give this definition for thinking outside the box...is a metaphor that means to think differently, unconventionally, or from a new perspective. this phrase often refers to novel or creative thinking. the free dictionary has this to say... to develop ideas that are different and unusual. we need to think outside the box if we are going to come up with something really new.  here are two cards i'm sharing with you today...i thought outside the box in how i wanted the cards to look:
thanks
