Nightmare on Challenge Street
OMG, what a morning..all because I decided to do a challenge. Actually, I had planned to make no cards today and get some things done in my house...you know, cleaning, laundry, etc. I noticed this morning as I was commenting on some blogs, a couple of my friends had entered and won at colourQ Challenge Blog so I thought I would just take a peek at their challenge. Big mistake!!! I knew I didn't have time but I noticed Arielle was from Alabama. Geez, this must be a sign that I should do the challenge as I am from Alabama, too. LOL Any excuse. So, I take off for the craft room all smiles, get my card made, all the while thinking I didn't want to use Taken With Teal. But, it turned out that I liked it. Then, I took my photos and went to colourQ's challenge blog and thought my computer colors must be off because everyone's Teal was looking Artichoke.
Wham! That is when I noticed I had used the colors from last week's challenge. Just shoot me! I head back to the craft room (not smiling this time), made the card again still using the Very Vanilla from last week's challenge, even after printing out a picture of the colors I was supposed to use. Once more, I had to tear that apart and use Kraft and White.
But, the good thing is, I could still use my cut out images. What a plus!!! I now have my card finished...AGAIN. I am uploading and hoping it is correctly colored. For more aggravation, I didn't have Early Espresso and swapped for Chocolate Chip. Also, I subbed Cajun Craze for Peach Parfait. I stamped the leaves and sentiment in Chocolate Chip. I slipped my pumpkins, gourds, and acorns inside the pocket I made and they are held by dimensionals. Would you say I had a bad morning??????? O.K., I didn't cry but wanted to. BOO HOO!
Stamps: Stampin'Up! Autumn Harvest and Falling Leaves
Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip, Peach Parfait, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Tim Holtz Texture Fades embossing folder (brick wall), twine Martha Stewart pumpkin punch
for stem on my sentiment. I punched the sentiment with my pumpkin punch, then cut around the sentinent leaving only the stem as it didn't fit too well. I think it still looks pumpkin-ish.
