Well, how goes it?? As you can tell by my title, I am a bit irked. Have you ever had this happen... you have this idea for a card. You get excited! You start working. It doesn't end up exactly how you want but you are still happy with the way things are going and then... BLAMO! You stamp the sentiment on crooked!!
Enter tonight's card:
Seriously? Crooked? Like... whazzup? There is a reason I use clear stamps and blocks for heavens sake! Well, it did get me thinking about the future of this sweet ol' card. I have a hard time getting all the cards I make out into the post even when they don't have mistakes on them. And this baby is going to be one of the last cards I will send just because of that crooked sentiment. (ugh, I can't stand looking at it!) So I wanted to ask you..... Do you send cards out that you are less than happy about? Do you send it to people you think won't notice or care? Do you hide it away forever? Do you try to fix it in some other way or take it apart and use the elements for a different card? (yes, I have done ALL of these things. It depends on the severity of the mistake).

SO, do me a favor. Leave me a comment any time this week on THIS post about what you do if you make a mistake on your card and you will be entered into a drawing to win some goods from my craft room that need a home. Those things include a CHF stamp set, American Craft pattern paper, and brad and buttons and bling (OH MY!) And well, you just don't know what else might jump into the box! You have until midnight of next Sunday (May 23rd) to join in the fun!
Thanks for stopping by this week. Have a good one, and happy STRAIGHT stamping!
