What Not To Do

Good Friday morning! Who is excited it is Friday? Me, too!  My step-daughter comes today for a visit! She is driving here and it takes about 6 hours so she should be here early afternoon...yay!

So...today's card is an example of what not to do because...it just doesn't scream cute or anything else to me.  I think separately the image is cute and the papers are cute but together it doesn't really do it for me.  The image is from Whimsy and Star and is called Alex's Pumpkin.  The papers are from this month's TE Key Ingredient Kit and are from October Afternoon's Campfire collection.  I do really like the layout though which is from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I do hope you'll come back tomorrow, though because my Sweet Stop card is much cuter!

Thought of the day:  Never retaliate when people say unkind things about you.  Pay them back with a blessing and God will bless YOU.  1 Peter 3:9

love the paper, love the image and I love the layout but together it does seem like something is missing.

enjoy your visit!

It's a sweet card, fun papers, cute image. Perhaps an embellishment of some type to add some textural element.
Funny how we both had cards today that we just didn't feel right about.
Have a great visit with your step-daughter.
