I am posting this card this morning because I want everyone to know that not every card I make is stellar (not that I would think that anyway); not every card is even good; in fact, some cards are pretty mediocre. I don’t usually post the mediocre ones, but this one was pretty funny, so I thought I would post it anyway. I am going to blame it on the fact that I started this card at 1 am, after having taking half an Ambien because I couldn’t sleep, and then went to my stamp room to wait for the Ambien to take effect. I saw the SCS challenge, which was Vacation Memories, pulled out some Crafty Secrets vacation Cotton Scraps (that I’ve had forever) and laid them out in a pleasing manner. Our family spent all our summers at the Delaware shore, so I thought these were perfect images! This morning I got up and proceeded to sew them together….a disaster. They were too big to fit on a standard card, too awkward for the next big-sized envelope I had, so I just stuck it on a card the same size and added some twill & a button. I thought it would be cute for my SIL’s new card, but then I remembered her anti-button fetish!! Drat! So this will go to my sister who lives at the beach and loves vintage…..she’ll love it anyway, despite its mediocrity…..
Thankfully from this view you can’t see the really bad sewing job! :D I did find a cute little dragonfly charm (that would have looked good on THIS card) that added a tiny little bit of redemption to this disaster! So there, I have bared my soul and shared one of my worst cards ever!!! There isn’t even any stamping on it! And I am going to post it on SCS as well as Just Add Ink, whose challenge today is VINTAGE!!! Thanks for the long post; if you’ve stuck with me this long, you’re a faithful friend!!!
Have a wonderful day!
