Lord Have Mercy Indeed!!

Happy Thursday, my sweet blog buddies!! Get ready for a tale of woe...I had the best laid plans for Mercy's sketch this week. I had happy thoughts about using my new Verve stamps to create a beautiful winter scene. However, after over an hour of fiddling and stamping and restamping and changing ink and paper, I finally gave up and cleared off my desk. It was so disappointing :( {insert *sniff* here} I had seen so many gorgeous Verve samples over the past 2 weeks and my card was a flop!! Actually, it was more than a flop, it was flup!! So I went back to a simpler card so that my ego would not be totally shattered. I will dust myself off and this weekend I will do those fabulous Verve stamps justice...I just won't bite off more than I can chew this time :) I sure am enjoying making panels out of kraft...it's one of my "kicks" right now :) And you can never go wrong with a grosgrain bow :) Thanks for listening!! Do you have any tales of woe? LOL Oh, and BTW Mercy!! We have never met formally, but I spent the whole evening with you and I think my dh is a little jealous!! haha He went to bed without me!! Have a wonderful day :)

If it makes you feel any better I have those days too!! Seems the more you want it to work the worse things get! Tomorrow is another day and we'll still be here :D Love the button tree, it's just darling and your bow is just fine in my mind (((hugs)))

Heehee that's hilarious!!! Loving the button tree and can't wait to see your verve creation this weekend.

LMAO! Gorgeous results....but I totally know what you mean with those days. But it's almost the weekend (thank goodness!) and you can stamp your heart out. Your button tree is phenomenal. Love this 'post-flup' card...you're well on your way to many more masterpieces!

As for sponging, I seem to start slow & just keep adding a bit at a time. Practice, practice, practice. =)

bless your heart, maureen! i have more of those days than i'd like to admit, too! sometimes nothing seems to go right, and i have to walk away for a while. as far as your husband goes...i guess he needs to learn how to share you! LOL! i had a blast at the release party, and i can't wait until the next one!

thanks for playing along with my sketch for this week...you did a fabulous job! :)

Well I for one am kind of glad you couldn't get the Verve one to work, 'coz it meant you did THIS one instead, which is pretty amazing to say the least!
