10MSPC

Super quickie today! I know... it seems it would be impossible for me to write anything succinctly, but I'm going to attempt it. Today's 10 minute scrap pile challenge card was basically a practice embossing sheet for another project. I just tried to make my practice sheet cute cause I'm a little OCD like that. I added the stamped image and had the fatal didn't-stamp-it-evenly-so-that-some-of-the-words-were-illegible error. Oops. Tried to line it up and stamp it again... um... didn't work. {I know it's nearly impossible, but sometimes it works and when it does, I feel like Super Stampwoman.} So I went with the ol' cover-it-up-with-a-cut-out-sentiment-as-if-I-intended-to-do-that-all-along trick. And it turned out that I really liked the addition of the white because it lighted the whole thing up, so I trimmed it a bit and added a white card base which made me like it even more. And then I smeared that sentiment a bit. Geez. But I always give friends cards the benefit of the doubt that if I'm giving them a super cute card that they will not notice things like that... sort of a little hidden friendship message. And now... I'm signing off, because Mr.Computer is still broken and is on his way back to the doctor who will hopefully fix him and severly discipline him for all of his bad behavior lately. Later! And by that I mean hopefully sooner rather than later...

Happy to hear I'm not the only one who smears and covers it up -"I meant to do that". I LOVE that you prettied up your practice sheet. Fab card.

This is an awesome card..even if it is/was "all messed up"!! I do the same thing because I hate to throw things away..especially if I can fix it. Thanks for another great 10MSPC!

I love you 10MSPC idea! I have so many scraps in a giant pile on my craft table. This is a good way to put those puppies to use!!

Cute card! I like the pop of white, too! Funny how a mistake can sometimes turn into something totally wonderful!!
