A frustrating day in the craft room...

I had such high hopes for the day.  DH had to work, my son was occupied, and my chores were finished early in the day.  Play time!!!  I had a stack of challenges and sketches that I planned to address.  Failure after failure. 

My first failure was my attempt at OWH Sketch 247. 
OWH Sketch 247

I tried to add the horizontal piece, ribbon, another cork strip, a paper strip - just didn't like covering up the shells printed on the cork.  The border punch on the left really bothered me too.  So, on to my second failure. 
Another piece of printed cork for the Shopping Our Stash - Not Your Normal Paper and The Paper Girls Challenge #72 - Cork.  This time more layers, punched borders on the right, horizontal element.  Nope, still not feeling it.  Acceptable, but I think I will try again tomorrow.  Yes, tomorrow is another day...


  1. I can just hear Scarlett O'hara saying that last line of your post! LOL! Love both of these cards! That printed cork is fabulous! Thanks for joining us this week at Shopping Our Stash!

  2. I'll take your failures any time. I love them both and so will the recipients. Have a fun day today.

  3. I don't know why you think those are failures. They look great! Thanks for linking them up in our challenge at The Paper Girls!

  4. Both are good cards...the second one shines a little brighter. The layering really makes things pop!

  5. Bobbi,

    Guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder because I really like these cards. And, I really like your interpretation of the sketch. :)

    Thanks so much for playing along with our OWH sketch challenge!
