got you covered

have you ever tried to craft angry? oh man, let me tell you - it does not work! ha ha!! i actually had 2 hours all to myself earlier this week and i was determined to make the most of it (i was looking forward to it all day!)! however, the world was against my plan and tried to thwart me! anyway, despite me anger (at the time) over silly things, i put my nose to the grindstone and crafted anyway! ...which turned out to be a mistake...ha!

however, when you craft angry, it shows! after attempting two different layouts and multiple tries at this card, i finally finished. it's sort of bittersweet, because my concept was so cute! but i just could not get it right! i'll have to try this card again another day!

moving on! this card is for the latest challenge at lawnscaping - love love love the challenges there! this week was to make your own patterned paper! check!

here it is:

i used the raindrops from lawn fawn's 'plus one' stamp set to make the background (same for the umbrella!). the fire people are of course from 'cozy christmas' - still one of my all time favorite stamp sets! and what a shock! i made one of the fire people a girl! ha ha! oh, and i made the sentiment with 'harold's abc's'. the fire people are popped up for dimension.

i do like the look of the card, i was going for a polaroid feel of the card, like i was capturing a moment in time with these fire people!

well, on to another day and another project!
