One of those days!

We all have them - those days that everything just goes wrong and it would have been much better to just stay in bed.

I was having one of those days recently, and I made myself feel better by going a little wild in the stamping room. Nothing like getting away from it all to cure a bad day. Now, because of everything going wrong I wasn't expecting much, but I was relatively happy with this card once it was done. It cheered me up!

Here are the 2 stamps I used ~




and here's what I came up with



I simply pulled out some bright and colorful paper and stamped our new "lines O' plenty" background on each using versamark ink and embossed with white powder. I mega'd 4 and giga'd 2 and taped them to my black card. After trimming the sides flush with my black card I moved on to my sentiment.
I stamped the saying using cornflower blue ink and dry sponged around it using spring green ink. After layering it with both purple and black paper I attached it on top of my black strip of paper and added my silver rivots.
Let's hope those bad days are few and far between for all.
Happy Tuesday!
