Two weeks ago, my good friend and fellow Prettie Girl, Jillian ,challenged us to make a card we "love". No sketch, no complicated instructions, no colors necessary, no limited supplies. Simply, a card we love.
This is the easiest challenge, but it's the hardest challenge, because I'm much better at these things given specific directions. Uh, did ya SEE the sketch I did yesterday? LOL!! Give me directions and I can deliver, no matter how hard it is. But make a card I "LOVE"??? Surely this must be easier than it even sounds.
Anyway, I sat down, and decided that since it was Valentine's day, I was going to incorporate some leftover paper scraps I had w/ a Valentine's theme to use for this week's card. I figured ya can't go wrong with LOVE as the theme right, given the challenge... Add to it the butterfly, the bling the flowers...even my favorite Flutter By Sophia from Paper Pretties...it has ALL of the things I LOVE! Soooo...after all that....
I have a confession. I really don't like the card! Ha ha so I go from "Making a card you love" to not liking it at all...only me, right?
I was going to scrap the whole thing and call it a new day, but after the week I had last week, I knew that Jill would appreciate the irony in this little post. Jill and I are sistas...and well, we have a little thing called sarcasm in common so Jilly, this one's for you. I have so missed chatting with you and can't wait to catch up!
Speaking of catching up, make sure to stop by the rest of the Prettie Girls' blogs to check out the cards that THEY love, too.
Have a Prettie Wednesday, everyone..and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet brother Dann. I miss you and want you to know that you CAN come home in the winter...it was 60 degrees in Chicago today! MWAH!
