Do you ever have one of those days when you realize in your attempts to stay on things you really are not at all? Well I had one of those days. I have been trying to make the most of my limited craft time these days and with my mom coming to visit. I had some craft time last week and I grabbed what I though was the November SOTM to make cards for a swap I participate in. I was so proud of myself as I loved the card I designed and go them all mailed off so they would meet the swap deadline. Well the next day the package came back to me, the automated mail station did not calculate the correct postage and it needed more. I though no big deal so I added the needed postage and off it went. I photographed the card so I could blog about it. I sat down to prepare my blog which would feature the November stamp of the month and realized I had not used the correct stamp!!!! I had just reached for a stamp set which was sitting on my desk and instead of confirming it was the one I needed I just got inspired and away I went.
Oh well…. I still really love the way this card turned out. So it really was not a big deal other than the fact I look like an idiot to the person who organizes the swap and I still needed to create a card for the November Stamp of the Month. The stamp set I mistakenly grabbed was Lifetime of Happiness C1589.
I really love this stamp set with all the flowers but my two favorite elements are the beautiful bow and the adorable acorn. Here is the card I created.
