Sometimes......

a card needs to be put out of its misery and this is one of them.....I posted it for Lisa over at Poppy Paperiehttp://poppypaperie.typepad.com/poppy_paperie/
I'm not overly thrilled with this creation....but I had it in my head that I could be first ....LOL at posting on her site this morning......Oh what a silly woman I am....On to the details.....PTI Kraft Paper, Text Style In Bloom, PTI buttons, Martha & Hero Arts gems, PTI Ribbon & Buttons...PTI Fall Elegance Stamps.....
So with that lesson learned, don't rush take your time and do it so your happy with your creation....Well I tore this card apart 3 times and still wasn't happy it landed in the circular file...yeah the trash it stunk and I hated it...Oh, wait isn't there something called resurrection???
I dug the card base out of the trash and I attached a card front that I had started on my desk finished it up....The other thing I knew but was in denial about...I'm not a girly girl....no frills, for me that is just who I am and at this stage of my life I'm OK with that and the truth is it isn't going to change any time soon! Here it is the final project with out what Lisa was looking for but I'm happy with it and after a short show and tell it will be sent to a friend in Florida...

Nicely resurrected card! Your post made me laugh -- that whole being first thing... I work in a preschool and am very familiar with the "me first" mentality. hehe Funny how we often revert to those preschool attitudes even when we're all grown up. I see myself doing the same thing!! Love the pumpkin on your second card, by the way.
