One of those days...

Hello my friends,

I am having one of those sad kind of days! Today you were supposed to have a video with a "Funny" kind of card. Needless to say I threw away 2 cards, changed my design 3 times, and set one of my cricut cuts up in flames (by accident). This particular card base I was able to save and make into something different. I looked at my Scrappy Mom Stamps and came up with this simple but meaningful card!

Sometimes you are just having a bad day, but as long as you are surrounded by the ones you love, everything will be ok. Hope you like my card. XOXO

Card Base: Standard A2
White Mat: 5 x 3.75
Tree: Joys of the Season Cut at 4
Sentiment: Scrappy Mom Stamps "Winter Wishes"

Scrappy Doo said...

What a pretty card. i love the white with the gel pen stitching and the cuttlebug embossing folder. Gee, this is a bad day card? :)

Well, although I would have loved to see the cut that went up in flames (you can put that on your gag reel edition)... I'm sorry you had a bad day and hope it gets better.

oh I agree, the card going up in flames would have been a great video:-) your card looks great despite the trials you went through to get there!! we love you cuz you are real with us Momo and we can relate to you. (okay, well I haven't set a card on fire yet but it did cross my mind that it could happen the last time I burned the edges of my ribbon) tomorrow is a new day sister!!

This card is simply beautiful and so nicely done. Sorry for the crummy day, you probably just need to give yourself some "me" time! You have been keeping us inspired and entertained in a major way, we don't want to burn you out, I for one would be lost! So as sad as I am on days with no Momo, you better take a break when you need it, we'll be here! ((HUGS)) Andrea

SimpleScrappin said...

Even with all the that happened you still managed to come up with a very pretty card...TFS!!

Scrappy Mel said...

Oh, no - MOMO!!! Sending lots of hugs and positive thoughts your way!

I have had thoses days (minus the flames) - what's the saying, "In to every life a little rain must fall"... just think of today as a rainy day! We all need rain to grow and thrive... what would be the point if everything came to easy. I know, I know, very philosophical for 10:30 at night!!! LOL

Anyways, the completed card turned out GREAT! We love you no matter what!!

Hugs and Kisses!!

Lori said...

ScrappingStephanie said...

Sorry you had a crummy day. I recently had one of my hand made flowers go up into flames while I was heat embossing it. Even though you struggled a little you still managed to make a very elegant, but sweet card. The sentiment is is perfect too. Chin up my friend, you will look back on this and laugh.:)

Sending lots of hugs
Stephanie

Awww Momo this is so not you but we are all entitled to an off day and I totally agree that as long as we have our loved ones it will all turn out right in the end.
This card is beautiful so you obviously made it to the right place of mind in the end.
Enjoy the rest of your day and never worry about a video we all understand as we all have those days too.
Kim xXx

What a beautiful card!!!

Kelly said...

Beautiful card! I am new to card making and I love to look at blogs, and watch YouTube vids. There are so many talented people out there! But I have to say that you are my favorite!! I hope you are doing better!

Yvette said...

What matters is that you did not let it get you down. Frustrating as it was you still completed a gorgeous card. That is what counts and it also shows your character. I'd say the day may have started badly but it ended well. Keep up the good work.
