Damask Love Do-Over Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Thursday, January 26, 2012


Amber is hosting a little Do-Over Blog Hop.  Aren't there projects that you have made that you thought, "Well, that didn't turn out the way I had hoped"?  Or maybe at the time you thought it looked pretty good, but now it makes you cringe just a little.  That's how I feel about the card I made for a challenge awhile ago (at bottom of post).   



I used the same color and the same sentiment.  It's still one layer (sort of) and minimal, but I love it so much more than the original.


GIVEAWAY



In keeping with the theme of my card, I'd like to say "Thanks" by giving away this Papertrey Ink exclusive stamp set.  A forum friend was kind enough to give one to me when I hadn't received one.  Well, in my last order I did receive one and would like to pass the new one along to someone else who missed out!  Leave me a comment on this post by midnight Sunday the 29th and I will choose a comment at random. 



Cardstock: PTI White
Stamps: PTI Rosie Posie, Friends 'Til The End
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz and Spring Moss
Dies: PTI Block Alphabet

  7. I don't think there is any card you make that causes one to cringe. However, I do like your makeover card with all the white & the hint of color on your die cut sentiment. (I do naot need the stamp)

  9. I like your do over. Of course, in my opinion, there was nothing wrong with the original card. How nice of you to have a giveaway. I have already received 2 of those--one for me and one I gave away!
