52Q: 32 (why)

it's questions like this that make me love 52Q! because we have *ALL* been here, haven't we??!

question 32: why did i do that?

(patterned paper: fancy pants & making memories; stamps: stampin' up & provocraft; stars from a vintage board game; dymo labeller; masking tape; colorbox & staz-on inks; stickles; copic outliner)

text reads, "'why did i say that' is usually more my problem! from simple tactlessness, to accidentally spilling secrets, to letting my temper get the best of me...if i am in trouble, there is almost always my MOUTH to thank!"

this was another super-fun, freeform, play-based atc session: i didn't have any stickers i really liked for the front so i decided to make my own using masking tape distressed with inks, stamps, stickles and markers. i was having so much fun, in fact, that i kind of forgot to MEASURE the letters to make sure they would fit. and thus, they did not fit. 15 seconds of judicious pruning & re-gluing later, all was well. you just gotta show 'em who's boss...that's all! :)

hey, do you know what starts tomorrow??! the very first caardvarks caard hop, sponsored by the fine folks at core'dinations cardstock, that's what! be sure to check in at the 'varks blog for all the details...there are some mighty yummy core'dinations goodies up for grabs, i can tell you that! not to mention three days worth of awesome cards and projects from the entire crew!

and if you enjoy that one, just wait until next month! we've got a special showcase of lovely new lines from GCD studios. trust me, you won't want to miss it!

in the meantime,

HAPPY SUNDAY, darlings!!!

  2. I love the way you are so honest when answering these questions....LOL!!! If I am going to answer this 52Q honestly I would need a book, not a tiny little tag...maybe I should just do a bullet point list...pmsl :)
    I adore those masking tape letters...I shall be borrowing this idea at some point :) As usual your tag is gorgeous, as well as letting us get to know you just a little better ♥

  3. My mouth opens before I THINK too often I'm afraid...why do I feel the need to be so honest???
