I tried making cards today......I made 4 and threw 3 away....they were UGLY with a capital U! I don't know what is wrong with me....card challenged lately! SO here is the ONE card I did not throw away! I stamped this image from my friend and have no idea what set it is from....I think it is SU! Not sure so if you know please leave a comment. The sentiment was from Crafty Secrets. The DP is Basic Grey's Gypsy line. I colored the cup in with my Copics. (Which by the way, Hobby Lobby is NOT cheap...don't bother going there....$5.85 per marker!) The background stamp is by Hampton Art. I'm not even sure I am crazy about this card either......

On a different note....I finished all 5 pages for the Memory Makers Master's Contest! I will be mailing them off later this week!

what is wrong with this one? Not a sausage! It is lovely!
I hate those days when nothing looks good :(. If I have a day like that, the best thing for me is to pick up a stamp which I love more than others and make a card with it. That seems to relax me then to make cards with other stamps :).

Oh I'm sure they weren't ugly! I have those days, though! Just remember, you are your worst critic! :) (I don't mean you in particular. . .it's a general "you") My mom always used to tell me that since I never liked anything I did.

I don't know about the other ones, but I *love* this one. That bg is so cool mixed with the colorful patterned papers.

I do think this one is really cute, don't feel too bad, it was certainly a color challenge for me too! Those are tough colors to put together! Glad to know there are others of you out there that "toss" too!
