DONE! Whew! Ever have one of those projects that just keeps going wrong? This was it for me. The challenge was to use the Birthday Bash cartridge. Not a problem, I have that one. I really wanted to use the stamp as the card base. CHECK I looked through the booklet and found the main cut that I wanted to do. CHECK! Oh look, I could use the Imagine and use the Hopscotch pattern cartridge, it has a cloud background. That would be cute behind the bird and banner I chose. CHECK! So after choosing everything, the sizing wasn't quite right, but after a little fiddling I think it is going to all work out. CHECK! I print and cut everything, but the clouds don't look right against the stark white card base. Hmm.. I could print it on kraft and that would be great, but I only have 8.5 x 11 kraft and it wont fit. If I make the base any smaller, the clouds piece will be too big, and maybe even the bird and banner. Hmm... At this point, I gently remind myself that it is just a card and no one is desparately counting on this one card. So I shrink the card base and recut it on kraft. Then I trim the cloud piece and re corner chomp it. CHECK! So now I go to assemble the bird and banner and manage to rip a flag from it, great! So I tilt the bird and banner so that it fits a little better. CHECK! Now for the sentiment. I look through mine (sorry, I dont have any Scrappy Mom's stamps yet!) and decide against the one's that say Happy bird-day or You're tweet, etc and decide to use the Hoo-ray for you! I'm thinking I can send the card to my cousin who is recovering from a serious car accident. Just as a stamp it, I think, wait this isn't an owl! It doesn't say Hoo. Oh well. It's just a card - a cute card. CHECK!
You might be thinking, why did I go on and on about this silly card? I don't know, maybe I just wanted to show you that we all have those days when it just doesn't go just right. Maybe I'm tired, but I don't want to go to bed. Maybe I'm bummed bc dear hubby called to say he won't be home tomorrow because the airports are being shut down because of weather. I don't know, but I did and you read it. LOL A very good scrapping buddy of mine is fond of saying "Done is done!"
