Hogs and Kisses

Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong, that was my day or rather most of it on Saturday. I was working on my DD and was trying to cut a title from my silhouette but every time I cut it the paper either ripped or didn't cut completely.

I then decided to work on a birthday card for my father in law instead, but I choose to stamp and color a goat and lets say that it just was an ugly coloring of grey and I just wasn't feeling the love. Then I thought lets just try some water coloring well that turned into a blob of nothingness..sigh perhaps I should go bake a pie I wanted to try, seems easy enough.

I poured the filling into the shell and put it in the oven and then 20 minutes later I watched it bubble all over the rim of the pan and onto the bottom. While that wasn't too bad my husband came along and cranked up the oven to 450 not realizing my pie was still in there and yep you guessed it, it burned. Honestly at this point I was beyond frustrated, seriously enough with the bad mojo already.

I still wanted to feel like I could accomplish one little simple card, so I plugged forward and made another attempt at a birthday card for my father-in-law which was a much better result than the first time and then I tried using my silhouette one last time which it did work so I stopped there. I didn't want to push my luck because as I put away my copics they spilt all over the desktop, down the side, on the floor and at this point I figured enough was enough, time for bed. 


  1. Oh no, Leslie, sorry to hear your day was a bit of a bummer! Super cute card and glad all was not lost! :)

  2. Your card is such a SMILE maker! I am sorry that you weren't feeling the greatest on Saturday...we all have one of those OFF days, Leslie! I love your play with pattern and colors on this card! AWESOME job on this one! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “It’s a Guy Thing” Challenge!

  3. Leslie, you certainly had an off day, but no one would know by the card. It is too cute!

  4. Oh my gosh, what an irritating day. Love this card though. Too cute!

  5. Oh man, what a day for sure! But it's like I tell myself, if it wasn't for those off days I don't think I would appreciate the good ones half as much. And I definitely have had my share of off days (lol)
    Hope the rest of the weekend went better for you!
    And I think it's a darling card :)
