Argh! I give up!!!!

I love the colours for Design Dollies colour challenge for this week: black, white, green and pink. I have tons of pink and green scraps from Ailis's baby album, so I thought I could whip up a beautiful card. Boy, was I wrong! These cards turned out nothing like I had envisioned, and I am soooooo frustrated that I think I'm going to skip card making for the time being (at least until my Copics come in and I can play with the digi stamps again!) I used a pattern from CTMH's card pattern book, Wishes, for the first card, and after deciding it was kind of blah, I used Mojo Monday's sketch for the second card. Still kinda blah! So I decided to throw in a funny photo that I took a couple of days ago to brighten your day. Jason was playing with Brenna after a feed, and this was a result of her favourite game, 3-2-1-BLASTOFF! Enjoy, everyone!

Supplies (card 1): CTMH White Daisy cardstock base and Black cardstock, unknown pink and green cardstock, Jolee's Boutique sticker, Basic Grey rub-on

Supplies (card 2): CTMH White Daisy cardstock base, stamp pad and embossing powder, Chocolate Alphabet (small) My Acrylix stamp set, Doodlebug Designs patterned paper and sugar-coated cardstock, Maya Road chipboard paisley, unknown pink patterned paper, ribbon and lace, white acrylic paint, MAMBI glitter sticker, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

  1. 3, 2, ,1, blastoff, lol this is a layout in itself and you are way too hard on yourself dear friend, these cards look great, but I am so like you, I am not a card maker and people say to me just pretend it is a layout condenced and I cannot even do one using a sketch. Submit them they look good. Melxx
