The Thank-you Cover Up ~ Verve Release Challenge #2
Okay...here's the kooky story...I was happily stamping away yesterday after coming up with an idea for the second Verve release challenge. I stamped the snowflakes, sewed the panels, made the snowflake embellishment and attached everything. Ahh, I looked at my card with admiration and smiled. Then I went online and checked out Marisa's lovely card for the same challenge...and read the part about the cards should have a "thankful' theme about them. EEEKKKKKKKK!!!! I remember reading this part of the challenge, but got soooo caught up in making it and wondering what sentiment would fit the horizontal strip that I totally forgot to make it a "Thank-you" card!!! I literally screamed in the studio!! I did NOT want to make another one and the sentiment was on tight.....hmmmm......then came the great cover-up idea!! I'll just make another sentiment to put over top and submit that one!! LOL I'm hoping Julee and the Divas will appreciate my creativity!! It actually looks kind of neat...like I meant to have it on an angle with the library clip!! A lovely commenter on Splitcoast even said I may have started a trend!! Hahaha!! Do you have any funny stories like that? Have a wonderful Sunday :)
