Nutty Birthday


I sure hope I find my mojo soon, because I'm getting desperate - I keep making cards, but they're not turning out right. :(
Here's the latest disaster...

cute little bugger though, ain't he?
Inside: have a perfectly nutty birthday

I was going against my inner instincts, doing something that didn't coordinate perfectly, and this is what I end up with. Uck. Last time I go against my instincts. I am happy I got to use this HA stamp again - it goes perfectly with the squirrel, even if the squirrel and sentiment don't go with the rest of the card.

This is for the Simply Scrapping Crafts challenge, as well as the Embellish challenge. I'm almost too ashamed to put my link in with all those other fabulous entries. :( Major downer. 
Anyways, (so you don't have to read all day about my "sob" story ;)) the winner of the RAK for my 102nd post is Rosanna! Rosanna, please e-mail me your address so I can send the RAK out.

Thanks for stopping in, and (because I can't resist the urge), have a nutty day! ;)

  1. Well I still like it Claire!!!! Cute squirrel and sweet hearst! Jo x

  2. Ok...first thing...this card is NOT a diaster! The color combo is awesome and the design rocks girl!!!! Secondly, I don't think you have lost your mojo at all. You are so talented Clare!

  3. Disaster! Are you kidding me!!! I think this is fab! Love the ribbon and the embellished scallops!

  4. Want my opinion? (I don't know why I'm asking, cause I'm going to give it too you...) I think the card is adorable. I love the sentiment with the hearts under it! And, it all DOES work. You are way too critical of your own work!!
