The title of my post pretty much sums up this card. Yesterday I spent the day making quite a few projects that did and will end up in the trash. I spent yesterday morning making a seriously ugly card for the Color Challenge, which ended up in the trash. Then I decided to make some projects using some of my new Papertrey Ink. stamps, which turned out cute, until the ink smudged, the paper was cut incorrectly, etc. Yesterday was not my day...as far as stamping goes. The most frustrating thing about it all was that I *wanted* to stamp, but nothing was coming out right. At times like this it is just best to step away from the ink and set the stamps down! LOL! ( I did make a little banner similar to my spring banner for my kitchen, but it says "HOME" and I did it in my kitchen colors. I thought it might bore you to tears, so I didn't post it.)
So...I was fearful today was headed in the same direction when I checked out the Sketch Challenge. It just didn't inspire me, so I ran some much needed errands, made a quick stop to the quilt shop and picked the girls up from Kindergarten. The quilt shop is always a wealth of inspiration and I purchased a few things, including a darling little pattern that I can't wait to share the results! I will post it to my other blog "Thimbles and Thread", but I will link it here as well.
After lunch, I set out to create a card, falling back on some of my tried and true stamps, etc. So...with that in mind I just decided to "Enjoy the Moment"; and I did. This card isn't fresh, isn't unique or much different from many of my other creations, but I had fun making it and I love the color combo and vintage touches. I hope you like it, too! Thanks for fluttering by!
BTW: I totally love the quote on my blog today from Kurt Cobain!
