I'm such a goof!

I should have known things were coming together all to well. I was up later than usual last night and blurfed on over to CPS to check out their new weekly layout. Usually I print a copy for me to take to my stamping desk, but I'm low on toner and didn't want to haul my hiney out to Wally World at 11:00 PM. "No problem", I said to myself, I'll just remember the layout. Well, there is a problem! My 46 year old brain just loves messing with me and likes to change things up from time to time. LOL! This was one of them.

Imagine my dissappointment when I got ready to post my card and looked at the CPS site and discovered that the main image was supposed to be an oval, not a rectangle! Argh! Oval, rectangle, now how in the heck could my brain mix the two of those up? LOL! I guess my mantra this year is gonna have to be "write it down, write it down"!

Anywho, here is the card that I created. Again, I used one of the lovely images that Sue (coffeestamper) sent me. Thanks again, Sue! I *love* this image to pieces!

I colored the image with my Copics. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the border and photo corners (got a tutorial on that I'll post later today). The edges were sponged with Mustard and Choco Chip. The DP is from My Minds Eye and the card stock is Vanilla textured. In retrospect I think I should have sponged the edges of the vanilla too. I did deboss a border (using my Cuttlebug and border EF) along side the scallop border, but you can't really see it in the pic. I have no idea who to give credit for the image but I think she's very pretty, don't you?

I guess I don't have to tell you what my next move today is gonna be. Gotta go stamp! Have a great day and thank for stopping by! TTFN

Well, it's beautiful whether or not it followed the sketch. But, sometimes, I have to look two or three times to make sure I got it right. Better luck next time!
