Beautiful Friend

Do you ever set out to do something..have it in your head what you want to do... feel excited...confident...ahead of the game...etc... and then several days later and several 'other' failed attempts (not planned) you find yourself back at the beginning...back to the card you started...only're not ahead of the game are going to be doing good to get it done in time.....  well.... that's my story.. all said and done (hopefully) this is my post for The Play Date Cafe (PDCC30 -pale yellow, light green and pink) color challenge and Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturdays Week 41Challenge (sketch)...

~additional challenges~
Papertake Weekly Challenge - say it with flowers

  13. All the time... I too have visions that don't translate to paper and end up at the beginning. Lovely card. The fringe as background is a lovely touch. Thanks for playing in the PDCC!

  14. I try, try, try to let the craft take me whereever but sometimes my common sense gets in the way of my crafting sense! :)
