A Card and a Story

Here's another card I made that is just like the card I did for the last Color Throwdown. I just wanted to see what it would look like using different colors.Sorry the pic isn't' that great. I have no excuse as the sun is actually making an appearance today. I should have gone outside to take the picture. And I know the blue butterfly isn't stamped perfect, but hey, call me lazy, after stamping all the other butterflies, I just didn't feel like re-doing the whole thing again.

Now for the story.

Last night was a deadline for a PC call for their Holiday Cards and More publication. I had made a couple of cards I wanted to submit, but life has been super crazy the past few weeks, and so here I was at 10 pm just beginning to submit the few cards I had. Then while I was submitting them I got a couple of other ideas for amazing cards, and so I hustled as fast as I could to crank 'em out and photograph them, and as I was submitting my favorite card, I looked on my computer clock and it said 10:58, but I was almost done. I hit submit, but I had gone too fast, and the picture hadn't uploaded entirely, and it then brought me to a screen that said I needed to add a photo, and then by the time I got back to getting everything figured out, it was past the deadline, and I couldn't submit it. It was a card that used non holiday specific product, and I was so excited to have made the card because it used a stamp set that I have been trying to play around with more and have had a tough time using it.....can ya guess which one? Here's a hint: it's the same one I used to make the above card!!! I'm going to submit it for another call, but I don't know if it will fit this other category exactly. We'll just have to see!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day.

Good luck with the submissions, I made a few too but it doesn't sound as if I was as near as productive as you! Your baby in the top post is so cute! And, what if you try a shift return instead of just a return? I don't know if that would work. I don't mind the spaces.

Great card! I love the orange. The Modern Basics looks so cool. Bummer about running out of time with your favorite card. I'm glad you were able to get some cards submitted!
