Well! I was perusing my blog list one day, last Friday to be exact, when I clicked on Tracey's blog...In My Creative Opinion. There I sat, practically drooling over the amazing card she'd created. My heart beat a little faster. Sweat began to form under my bangs. I could feel my resolve crumbling. You see, I'd resolved NOT to make any more crafting supplies purchases for the whole month of July. THE. WHOLE. MONTH. The next thing I knew, I was clicking the "add to cart" button over at PTI. Oh woe is me. Then right after I'd made my purchases, a smidgen of guilt began to creep in...not enough to cancel the order mind you, but a teensy squeensy bit. I had to wait until yesterday for my order to arrive. A little more guilt. DH got the mail. "Oh that's just a little something I needed.....," I said, voice trailing off. But the story doesn't quite end here. Nope. And here's where Tracey gets the blame... When PTI sends you your order, they slip a little goodie into the box. So besides the two stamp sets and die I ordered there was this journal card tucked all nicely in with my brand-new wonderful goodies. Stay with me now....And over at Muse, where I do like to play, the lovely and talented Therese Calvird made this delightfully wonderful card. I worked and worked and worked and worked at it, but Mr. Mojo wasn't cooperating; not one iota. THEN.....I picked up the journaling card. Oh. My. Goodness. So, because Tracey made an amazing card, and forced my resolve to completely and totally crumble, I placed an order to PTI which included the journal card I'm using for my take on the Muse! And that's why you've had to read this long post before seeing any cards! Go ahead, blame Tracey...
And now the moment you've all been waiting for...or did you skip the reading part and head straight to the card? No matter...! ; )
As you've (hopefully) read by now, the entire front of the card is a PTI journal card. Except for the sentiment, which is WPlus9, and the ink is PTI. I also added the MME three enamel dots. IRL, it's a bit softer, but little cooperation with the lighting and editing...*sigh*
BTW, I hope you know that this post was all in good fun. Tracey is a wonderful person, and maybe I should have said "inspired" rather than "blame," but then it wouldn't have been as much fun to write! Be sure you head over to her blog and take a peek at the wonders you'll find there. She's brilliant!
BTW2, Thanks to all of you who voted for my last Muse card! An HM is definitely an honor. : ) and thank you all so much!
