The Uglies

Happy Hump Day peeps! Hope your week is going good so far! I have had a "nasty" case of what I have been calling the "uglies" lately. I do not know why but I have been very testy and emotional and the slightest things upset me, even my family is annoying when this "nasty" bug hits. It has finally made it's way into my crafting area.

I made this card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Don't get me wrong I like this card but I trashed at least three attemps with this sketch, before I finally got this one done. I took alot of inspiration from this card made by Karen Giron. I used her idea of the tag on the front and the same stamp set.

I flipped the sketch and used elegant eggplant, more mustard and whisper white cardstock. I don't have the tag nestibilities so I made the my tag with the SU tag punch.

I think I also achieved another SU only card. The only thing that might not be is the white grosgrain ribbon, I am not sure where I got it from.

Here is a look at the inside:

So hopefully the "uglies" will not hang around to long and not effect my stamping any more.

That's all for today, thanks so stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

I don't think your card has the 'uglies', it's a great card. I'm just not sure about that ribbon. I don't know if it's the placement or if it's the 'bow'. but the card is great. I love the colors. Great job on yet another SU only card.

Oh I certainly know the uglies! I try hard not to let them take me over but sometimes I get no choice, watch out family! ;)

I love this card Vicky!!THIS certainly is NOT a ugly!! I love the tag shape of the panel and the colors are great together!!
A big Hug for you!

This turned out great. I'm sure your other ones did too. We are always so hard on ourselves aren't we?

Great card, as always, and not at all "Ugly". And as for the other, aren't we all in that little "uglies" boat every once in a while, anyway. Maybe today was just your day. Tomorrow will be better.
