Just Ugly

Have you ever had one of those days?? Awhile back - on the quilting shop hop - I had picked up a little quilt kit in this bucket (undecorated, of course). I decided that I would make up the little quilt for my sister in law for Christmas. Only, they won't be here at Christmas; I needed to have it done by Thursday. Being the good little girl that I am, I worked on it yesterday and started quilting it today (it was really little... maybe 10 1/2" x 10 1/2") and it turned out ugly. Arrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!!! Nothing I could give as a gift. The colors in the kit weren't the same as in the picture... or I didn't do the quilting right, or something. Soooooooo.... now what??? Well, my 15 yo dd pipes up, "Well, at least you liked the pail." Ah Hah!! The pail! I used some more of my trusty Brocade paper pack to cover it, and made four 3 x 3 cards for the inside, as well as a little notebook. I need to get an RSVP pen, too. The cards are actually all different, but this was the one I liked the best.

Hey, speaking of paper, is there anyone else out there who would like to take part in the Stampin' Up! Paper special this month, but can't spend $30 plus shipping to do it?? I was thinking it would be fun to get a bunch of the packs and cut them into 6 x 6 sheets. That way we could get a great sampling for a lot less money, and the 6 x 6 size is great for card making or small scrapbooks! Anyone interested?? We could split it 4 ways for only $10 each (The extra $ is for shipping & an envelope). Email me with your favorite 2 packs if you're interested and I'll get back to you. I'll do more than one group if there's enough interest!!

ps... Don't forget the mulberry challenge! Head over to Janine's blog to see an amazing mulberry flower!!

Don't you just hate it when something you worked so hard on doesn't work out !!! But the pail is beautiful and so are the card and tag. I love the colors.

Such beautiful work you do! This is such a great gift idea. The outside is as pretty as the inside will be!
