TSSC168 Uncharted Territory



What is wrong with me?

Boy- there's an open ended question. It's also rhetorical. Please don't send me a top ten list.

My problem is with following sketches. I find a sketch I like and then I do about 70%-80% and then change it at the end. That's why I have a lot of "this card is based on the ___ sketch." "Based on" means I started to follow the sketch and then I changed it at the end.

Now I know I've got artistic license and all that stuff. I also know when I share a sketch I don't care if people follow it exactly. So, most people probably don't mind if I don't follow their sketch exactly either.

This card was changed at the end out of necessity. First, I'm not very good with masculine cards. So, I recently ordered this set, Uncharted Territory, so I could make some "boy cards" for the men who serve in my elementary ministry. As it turns out, the sailboat was a little too big for the sketch. Then, this didn't leave me enough room for the little rectangles. Instead, I had to stamp "Birthday Wishes" below. It looks fine. I just wish I could follow a sketch to the very end! Oh, well! Maybe next time!

Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:

You did a great job on this--Love it!

Still have our Sasha--but--think she maybe really coming to terms with her situation--eating is just not much fun for her anymore!

Glad to see you here! Many Hugs! N
