I started on this card yesterday and was not happy with the bottom left corner. I thought that there was too much blank space. I tried adding a sentiment, buttons and other various embellishments. Nothing worked right so I walked away and left it until this morning. A fresh outlook worked. I decided to add a paper pierced flight path and was finally satisfied with it.
While I like this card I am not totally in love with it and debated about posting it. But I remembered that I promised to share all of my successes and failures and while it might not necessarily be my favorite there still might be parts that helps inspire someone else.
When I first started on this card I knew I wanted to use Just Buzzin’ By because it hasn’t seen much ink. I also knew I wanted to use my neglected Sweet Always designer series paper. I’m using up the older stuff before I get new paper. I did order one new package of paper but it won’t be here until next week. I’m sticking with my pledge to use what I have before I stock up and try to buy the whole entire catalog at once.
I hope you have a fantastic Thursday, although I don’t know where the week went. Maybe it’s my lack of sleep. I think Evan is going through a growth spurt and he has been very restless and night and comes and climbs into our bed. This is not something he does on a normal basis, so I know something is up. He’s been tossing and turning and keeping me up. He has suddenly grown too tall for his 3T pants so hopefully this is a short phase and will be over soon.
