I had to leave my craft room.....

This little card I am showing to you here should have been very, very simple.

It was not.

I even found all of my BigKick parts that I have been missing for a while. My craft room is a disaster and I spend more time looking for stuff sometimes than crafting. I made a card that was very similar to this last week at our scrapbook store here in town. They have make n take card days once a month. I really liked the clean, simple look to it. Well, I ended up making the front of this card twice ~ I think there is something wrong with my paper trimmer and when I had everything finished, embellished, in place exactly where I wanted it and I taped the front down, I noticed it was noticeably crooked. I tried to cut the top again, but this does not work well when you already have adhesive on the back. Needless to say, it ripped and I started all over. I like how it turned out, finally, but I had to take a break from making anything as I am just too disgusted with how long this took. Oh well. Maybe after I pick up the kids I will venture back in there to ummm organize....yeah that is the word :) Have a great day!!

This card was made for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #137. Here is the photo story.
I'll be back in a bit for another entry.

  1. I do hate when a card that should take no time at all takes TOO much time! Frustrating, I know. :) It turned out very lovely, though, Michelle, and was worth all those moments in the making.

    Thanks so much for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
