Don't Quit Your Day Job

My house is such a mess.

I have no idea why I thought it would be a good idea to make our own cards.

I finally got one I liked and then I stamped the inside message upside down. Sigh.

I thought my mitten idea was cute until.......

...I realized how many itty bitty mittens I was going to have to cut out by hand. No fun. I am also pretty sure they are all going to fall off inside the envelope.

I do like these little blocks of fancy paper. I need to steal someone's ideas on what to do with them though.

The decorating tape was fun to play with but I also came up empty on what to do with it. I should have done more research on card making before I got started. I thought this would be easy. Ha.

When I started making stuff like this I knew it was time to go to bed. Ewww...

I did manage to come up with a handful of semi-decent ones that I am sending to only the closest of friends who would understand what I was trying to do here. Tomorrow I am heading to the store to buy cards for the rest of the folks on my list.


  1. They are super cute. Love the quilts on the clothes line and the mittens.....
    Ha ha you stamped upside down. I would do that too. Absolutely.
    Gold STar for design and effort.
    I am not sending cards at all.

  2. I like the mittens, but completely agree that cutting out 4 of those fiddly things for every card would be trying for even the most patient of people!
