Curly Christmas Fir


Had all good intentions of creating a blog post last evening! Maybe even stamp-up another idea using Kims' new U R A Hoot and Bold Curls sets released yesterday?! When I made the HUGE mistake of momentarily sitting down on the sofa with a cup of decaf! {sigh} Well, then I caught a chill! In other words... the sofa HELD me down while the down throw TIED me up... Well, that's all she wrote!

So, what are your thoughts on this "curly fir" card? Well, let me tell you... it's my least favorite of the three designs stamped for CHF's new release! BUT my most popular!? {insert dumb founded here} Hind sight being 20/20. I could've, would've, should've done a bit of piercing to my trees curled limbs? hmmm...MAYBE! Might I have pierced a partial border creating symmetry to my card front? hmmm...MAYBE? Stamped my owl in a different brown? hmmm... MAYBE! And the list continues! Being my own worst critic and having run out of blush red dark paper by Prism! I couldn't start over! So I needed to just post and live with it! {ACK!} When I get five minutes it's getting a CINDERELLA make-over! {LOL}

Yesterday was a glorious day with a high of 46 degrees and PLENTY of SUN! {sighs with a smile} Friday is blowing in with a wintry MIX through tomorrow! Oh, well... can't dwell on it! Everyday is what we choose to make of it, so with that said... dawn a smile, enjoy the day to it's fullest as you don't get a chance at REPEATING this day again! {HUGS}

Thank-you for driving by with a wave in my direction!

Anne, You're a hoot! Your write ups here are so funny. Love the card and feel your pain. Some days are like that.......we have tons of snow and wind.....lots of things closed because of our nasty weather....more time to stamp for me!

Are you kidding? This is fabulous Anne - such a fantastic use of the curls, the tree looks fabulous and I don't think it needs a thing doing to it. Walk away and see if it grows on you and if not, just trust to everybody else's judgement!
