~Not Always Perfect~

Good morning too all my crafty friends! :)

It's funny because even after all this time in scrapbooking and
all the pubs, I still have those not so perfect moments where I
want to tear up a card or layout and start over.

But lately I have been just setting it aside instead.
Resisting the urge to purge the project! haha
This is one of those cards I was not happy with but I set it aside.
I always make cards for the soldiers and local Veteran's hospital
and I have little boxes I ship off with the cards.
So I got to thinking..."Hey this might not be the greatest card
I ever made but why toss it?? Why not donate it, it's not horrible! LOL"
Note to self...don't get frustrated, it's only paper and glue!!

On a side note, do you like that clock stamp?? I got the set for 1.50!!
Along with a Tim Holtz clock die for 3.00!!
At a yard sale of all I am pretty stocked.
The card is Ruby Rock-It papers and embellishments, it is safely
tucked into my donation box, right where it belongs *smile*.
Have a wonderful Thursday, don't forget to enter the giveaway
from Monday! I will draw a winner tomorrow!

I think it is a fabulous card! It's funny how we are our own worst critics. I'm happy to hear that it is going to a great cause. :)

We are always our worst critics. I really LOVE this card Pinky. I especially love the sentiment with the clock. Colors are good too. Everyone's taste is different so it just might not be your taste, but it sure is mine!

Wow we are so alike! I have a pile of cards I don't like, sometimes when my weekly group gets together in my craft cave- someone will sure enough go to that pile and make a creation out of something in there.
Last night I sat and finished 50 cards to mail to the soldiers.
Yes it is only paper
Your card is really a nice design and will be appreciated

It's an awesome card :) I need to make more cards for those causes too.

What a great deal! I think it's a great idea to donate any cards you aren't in love with. Though I think this one is really pretty!! Have a great weekend :)
