Too bad...so sad

Did you ever wake up in the morning with an idea and you just couldn't wait to make it into a card?! But then when you do, it wasn't what you thought it would be? Well, today is one of those days for me...{sad face}


So, here's my story...it's a long one so brace yourself! Anyway, you know that place between awake and dreaming...when you still remember your dreams? This morning I was there and I pictured a card using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #85 and using a technique and stamp set we used at convention with the same color scheme. In my head this card was SO pretty and I actually fully awoke hoping that the Color Throwdown #104 was going to be the colors I was thinking about using. But, what are the odds of that...right?

Well, I went to the CTD blog and, OMG!!! there they were!!!! The EXACT colors I had dreamed about!!! Fate, right?! So, I spent time with the boys all morning...finally got the little one down for a nap and the big one was upstairs playing with his pal, Uncle Stuart. What a perfect time to go downstairs and make my masterpiece.

As fate would have it I'd create something that is not at all how I pictured it and though I am very sad at how this card turned out I am posting it anyway. I can't explain what happened, but I blew it and am now too sad to stamp. But, the story was fun to share anyway.

Thank you SO much for visiting my blog today and reading my winded story. Have a great evening everyone!
