Just what WAS I thinking??

Evening all.  Now, before we start on this, let me get the excuses out of the way first:

1.  It's too hot
2.  I'm very tired
3.  Had a really busy work week
4.  It's too hot
5.  My arthritis has gone Code Red
6.  My brain is fried
7.  I need chocolate
8.  I've not been sleeping well
9.  It's too hot

Any of those reasons could be the explanation for what I made tonight - honestly, even I was surprised.  But, I am prepared to share the bad as well as the good, so sit back and have a good snigger.  There's even no need for you to be kind, I know it's not good.

Ingredients for this nightmare are:
Stamped Image - LOTV
Sentiment - LOTV
Medium - Distress Inks
Papers - Crafts Too
Extras - Memory Box Snowflake Corner, Flower and Ribbon from stash

I've got a day off work tomorrow.  I intend to sleep in, have a gentle morning and then do some crafting, hopefully with better results.  I'll let you come back about 9.00am though as it will be Winter Wonderland time and it's my DT week!

Hugs. Sxx

You are so funny, I was laughing out loud when reading your list of excuses, too funny!! Anyway, I honestly like the combination of dots and stripes and also the corner embellishments look great. So the card is no way a nightmare! It's cute!

I like purple and green. And I can't see what you're talking about - I LOVE that flower too. Seriously woman, that list of excuses is longer than mine. Have I mentioned your whack job status lately? I'm sorry your arthritis is code red - I'm sure some digestives will help!!!!! Seriously hun, I love this card. I like to see you use more embellies, makes me feel at home. Enjoy your day off work! Super big hugs, Chubby Fairy x

Visiting you does make me smile. I have to say I love purple but not with green. The layout and image are gorgeous though. Good to see some gorgeous embellies, that flower is beautiful and love the dies.

Hmmmm, clearly we don't agree on this card. And no, I'm not just being polite, I really thing it's nice. :) I like the cute image and the sentiment on this card. And the stripes and dots too. It IS a beautiful card! Hugs! xx

Sue said...

Well, I think it's fabulous too. You probably know by now that I love LOTV images so any card with them is gorgeous in my eyes and you have coloured this cutie so beautifully. That snowflake corner die is wonderful - oh dear something else to add to wish list!
Hugs Sue

LOL hun, I think we all need to sit you down and give you a good talking too!! We are all hard critics of our own work and your card is just brilliant - I love the image, gorgeous colours which work fab together and a great layout too - I think your brain was probably fried and you were tired as you obviously were not thinking straight when you wrote your post!! Love it. Hugs, Claire x

You're so funny Squirrel - its really cute and funky though must admit I did need shades ;-) but then again I always go for very soppy girly whirly pastels so I have absolutely no bravery when it comes to funky colour combos lol !! :-)
Love the cute image by the way
