One a personal note I'm not one to toss an hour or so of work because of a 'screw-up' ....I frequently 'make do'...coming up with a 'work-around'.
On a historical note...my daughter's life long friend (they "met" in nursery school, attended high school and college together) was in nursery school called "Messy Missy".
I don't do well with 'Clean and Simple' challenges. I usually end up with too many layers and a card far from simple. I was in the mood to try something 'free and easy' - just stamping here and there. The FAIL with this attempt to try to be 'free and easy' and 'clean and simple' had to do with the CLEAN part. What the heck? I evidently am a VERY messy stamper! I had dribs and drabs, dots and dashes of sludge and smudge EVERYWHERE! To give you an idea of how messy I was with this - I will admit to all my goofs! Each of the tiny punched posies are covering a dot of something that evidently adorned my mitts! Oh - also the sentiment is placed over a dot of who know what?! I'm worse than a kid with finger paints on a white linen tablecloth!
This must be why most of my cards are done using LAYERS of design paper...
