This weeks challenge was a sketch which I pretty much followed to the letter. I don't like this card very much but I thought I would put it on here anyway as you all know it does go wrong sometimes (ok most of the time for me lol) but it's still fun to make and I want to keep my blog "real".
I think it's the colours that have put me off it because I liked the sketch. I just thought I would do something different and not use the colours I always use.
Anyway backing paper was a free download I have had for ages, the embossed paper on top of that was in a handmade paper pack I bought in the works, I put the yellow/cream paper through my cuttlebug and used some of it to make the leafy bit which was part of the embossing that I just cut out. The just for you stamp is from a See-D's set and I'm not sure about the Birthday Wishes because I got it from a friend.
Flower brad is papermania and the flowers, ribbon and bow with charm are all from my stash.
Now I have to tell you about my disaster that happened this afternoon. My boyfriend thinks I'm off my head because I was really annoyed and upset about this but he just doesn't understand.
I thought I would be good today and clean up all my stash, so I had out all my papers and everything else on the floor putting them in piles to be put away when disaster struck........ Barry (my b/friend) made me a cup of hot chocolate and I didn't notice he had put it on the table next to me, well you can just guess what happened next!! Yup that's right I spilled it all over my designer papers and everything else I had beside me including loads of stamped images friends had gave me! I thought a lot of the stuff underneath would be ok, but nope it went on nearly everything and most of my papers are ruined :(
I did manage to rescue a few pieces and some images but a friend just sent me tons of Magnolia, Whiff of Joy and Sugar Nellie images to name a few and they are all ruined. I am heartbroken lol. Well okay I wouldn't go that far but I was really annoyed and it would just happen to be all the new 12x12 papers I had just bought the other day that were right on top of the pile and got totaly soaked!
I'm sure all you crafters can imagine how I am feeling right now but Barry found it kind of funny that I had to chuck a load of stuff in the bin while I was almost in tears. So guess who's not in my good books?
I can't even buy anymore stash for a good few weeks because the money situation is a bit tight just now. I wish some of my family or friends were crafters because I would just pinch some of their stash. But unfortunately for me none of them are interested in paper or stamps so I might have to resort to stealing my 5 year old Daughters Smirk paper stack I bought her a while ago, and make Smirk cards for a month!
Well off now to feel sorry for myself lol.
Thanks for looking today and sorry for the depressing post!
