Taco-less Tuesday

I think I broke myself making those couple dozen similar cards last weekend. This past weekend I couldn't remember how to craft. Well, first I did manage to make 10 of these fall themed ATCs. They were fun since I wasn't quite sure what the final product should look like and just fuddled along with this and that until they were done.
After that, I couldn't cut straight or accurately, my ability to match colors was out the window, I put adhesive on every surface except the one that needed it... Basically everything I touched turned to crap.
That's when I decided to pull out one of those kits where all you have to do is assemble the pieces. Surely I could do that?! I got the spacing a little off but it all works out anyway. I even did a bit of sponging and doodling too.

That was it though. The one card took it right out of me. Ever have one of those nothing-goes-right weekends?

The Fine Print: Scarecrow die by Cheery Lynn, Fence die by Taylored Expressions, pumpkin die by Impression Obsession, Sunflower punches by Marvy, dotted stencil and distress Stickles by Tim, stamped greenery by Hero Arts and Stampin' Up. Hello card parts from Basic Gray "Lime Rickey."

Hehehe, I think making that many similar cards would break me too! But you came back beautifully! I LOVE your scarecrow scene! So many awesome die-cuts! Scene cards are my favourite! Your floral hello is gorgeous!

Ah yes those days when everything does not go right, and what you planned is totally different to what eventuates - hate them - glad to hear you got the ATC's made, and the card looks perfectly acceptable to my eyes, Princess J

What a wonderful scene you created for the ATCs--I'm in awe, Judy! Your doodling is fabulous--something I just can't do!
