Good Thursday Morning Peeps!! Can't believe how fast this week has gone.
First up I have to say this card gave me fits, I worked on it for a long time yesterday, I was using this week's sketch challenge over at Splitcoast. I originally had the bottom panel white with the score lines like the top. I had it all done, but just didn't like it. I was determined to make it work, I tried adding some bling, I stared at it for ever, it just wasn't working. I put it aside, sometimes I just need to give myself some time away from a card or project I am working on to get a fresh prospective.
I went to town, I needed to get my nails done and do some grocery shopping, you know paper towels, toilet tissue, cat food, milk,....etc. When I got back to my stamping table last night after dinner....I still could not figure out what I needed to do to salvage this card.....so I just pulled out another sketch, this coming week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and went to work on it. It did not come easy either, I worked on it the entire time American Idol was on....an hour and a half. Got it done and I think it is cute, be sure to look for it this Sunday.
I still could not do anything with this little stinker......so I gave up....went off to play at pogo while watching Ugly Betty. Sometime in the night I finally decided I needed to rid this card of the ugly white panel at the bottom and add this DS paper. And there you go, it looks so much better, absolutely frustrating!! LOL...the anatomy of the card......I do stress so much over my cards.....and alot more lately!!! Not sure why, please tell me that you guys do this too, sometimes!
Now you know guys, I am a nut!!! Anyway the card is made with whisper white and rich razzleberry card stock. The stamp set is "Herb Expressions" and the sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. The DS paper comes from the Cottage Wall and the Razzleberry Lemonade pack.
Well, that is all for me today, Thanks so much for coming by and ...........HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
