Had some fun yesterday playing with the “Menswear” set from Flourishes.  I actually felt a little guilty cutting off perfectly good sleeves.  You would have thought it was a real shirt that I was altering!

Here is the card I made yesterday.


Well have you ever made a card and decided that you wanted to add just one more little detail?  That’s what I did this morning with this card.  I wanted to add/draw a black line around the border of the orange background.  So I did.  But there was a little problem that was totally driving me nuts.  Since the sentiment panel was already there (yes I should have removed it before drawing the line) it was hard to draw a line the entire distance on the left side of the card.  So I did it in two steps.  Unfortunately I didn’t get both lines at the same angle.  D’oh.  I tried to ignore it but ended up trying to fix it.  BIG MISTAKE!  lol


Oh my, I had to add a Harley symbol “leather” ribbon to cover up the goof.  It made the bottom of the card too heavy.  It felt unbalanced so I added the brad.  I got the brad too close to the corner.  Had to move it in which of course left a visible gaping hole.  So I added the hardware ring.  Now the top of the card was too heavy.  So I added a second ribbon.  Was this ever going to end!?!  LOL  Well for better or for worse I ended this journey!  Do you ever have one of those kind of days?

Before I go I wanted to share a scrapbook page that I did a couple of years ago.

I originally started this hobby with the intent of scrapbooking.  Well this was my first page.  I’ve only done three pages since!  The layout is a CASE of a page that I saw on display at Ben Franklin.  That’ my DH and his biker buddies on their ride to the Grand Canyon.  Aren’t they adorable!
