Doilies and Frills x FOUR, oh my!
Can I just tell you, this card was TAKE FOUR..... the challenge today was to make a frilly card using a doily product.....and I only saw the part about frilly.....hey, easy for me, right? Frilly is what I do!! But did I EVER STRUGGLE trying to come up with a frilly card using new stamps! This honestly IS TAKE FOUR.....Two I hated, one I sorta liked enough to use in desperation, and then low and behold I looked at the whole challenge and noticed the doily part, so it was back to the drawing board which in the end I was happy about, since I really do like this card. But can I tell you, that NO JIVE I was nearly in tears trying to get this done!! I spent at least 3 hours stamping, and ended up with one card that I really love, and 3 that I really don't. Does anyone else have those times that no matter what they make, it doesn't cut the mustard??? Then at other times the ideas just flow....there are times when I sit down to stamp and they just roll out and I love them all....and then there are OTHER times like last night where I hate everything I make!! Arghhhh,,,it was a long night of not successful stamping!! I decided I guess I am not really a FRILLY stamper, just FEMININE, but FRILLY? NOT SO MUCH. It's usually the ones I am so sure of that I blow, and then when one comes around that really is a challenge, sometimes I surprise myself and end up loving it. Go figure. :( Finally, in the end I succeeded.....so hope you like my frilly doily creation! Until next time, Karen
