6 Geese a-Laying

Good Morning everyone!! I hope the weekend has been good to all of you!! I finished Christmas stocking shopping yesterday which means I am almost done. I have really dragged it out this year as I would have been done all Christmas shopping the first week in November. I just have been too busy card making LOL!!

So I made this card on the Thursday - hated it and almost threw it away. I actually threw it to the side and started a different project. I looked at it again yesterday, and decided if I rearrange everything and throw a pretty bow on it - that it might actually look pretty darn good! Turns out, I really like it LOL!

I guess that is my lesson to myself and anyone else. Don't throw it away - just walk away, come back, and maybe it will all work out!

Today's Challenge: It works out that I can enter this into Janet's The Corrosive Challenge - yay!! The challenge is to use BLING.
Edited To Add: I noticed 3 days later that I never did link this up to The Corrosive Challenge - good thing I double checked as I can still enter LOL *Sigh* - sometimes I think I would seriously lose my head if it wans't attached..


Card Ingredients: Recollections paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; studio g and Recollections stamps; Craftsmart Gold ink; Stampendous! Pirate Gold embossing powder; Ms dollar bin ribbon; random gems, button and twine.

Happy Sunday all!! I will be posting again this evening as I have to catch with my "The Twelve Days of Christmas" posts LOL - I missed yesterday - whoopsies!

Thats exactly what I do Deanne when I'm not happy with a card - put it to one side and come back to it later. Isn't it funny how a fresh look can make all the difference! I agree with Jo your card is adorable.

Love Lynda xxx

Deanne, I'm so glad you didn't toss this card, as everything about it is beautiful. You're way too hard on yourself, my dear. Please don't ever forget, that you're a creative genius. XOXO's Just 5 more sleeps till Xmas :) :) :)
