My plan Wednesday was to work on several challenge cards, including Jennifer's fab OLW40 challenge. Instead, I got sick. As in my throat is on fire and Ricola is my best friend. As in get me ten boxes of Puffs Plus Lotion with Vicks, STAT!
Needless to say, my cold-medicated self channeled weirdness into my other blog (you can read it here) and left nothing for stamping. So today's card is one I stamped last month that I've been saving for just the right time. And now is that time.
Believe it or not, this took three tries. First, the dogwood stamp didn't give a good impression (user error in inking, actually), plus the sentiment used too dark a brown and looked really harsh. Second, the dogwood looked great but the sentiment got smooshed on either end. This stamp, from Papertrey's Everyday Blessings set, is hard to stamp evenly, and I'm not sure why. This was my third and final attempt, and the sentiment still doesn't look perfect. But three's my limit.
And I love how the dogwood image and sentiment work so beautifully together!
Will someone please pass the Puffs?
