Tis the Season to be Merry


Have you ever had one of those days when you were making a card and nothing went right? Well, this was my day. I came up to my craft room ready to make my card, for some reason my printer would not print.  I kept trying. Then I thought, "well I'll use my other printer."  So I loaded the paper, started to print and got a paper jam. I finally got the paper unjammed, when I remembered I had already printed these images last week. So on with my card!  I started to put it together...had all the pieces glued and realized I had a side opening. At this point I was not about to redo another card. Side opening cards are fine. But bottom opening cards take a better picture and is what most crafters use these days. Also I display my cards and hang them over a wire strung across my wall. It will be impossible to hang this one. 

I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas and that you were able to enjoy that special day with family and friends.
