Rejects & Friends!
Today I thought I’d show you a couple of rejects. It’s good to show things that don’t go quite right- this first card is proof that chucking everything on a card isn’t always the best way to go! As this is a ‘warts and all’ blog – I thought you should see some of the more ‘warty ones’ ha ha! This card has a load of Paper Artsy goodness- the paint, the leafy stencil the gorgeous butterfly ( which you’ll be seeing a whole ton next week 😉) and my own stencil which I’ve used the ‘bump technique’ with. Just a shame it doesn’t show the products to the greatest effect!
This second one is less of a ‘wart’ but I sent it in and it was a reject. Bless it. Excuse the naff background- not my finest photographing hour either!
Succeeding better are some of my kids with their friendships.
Good friends are a joy to have and witness.
One of my boys has a really good buddy and they are pretty inseparable. Given half the chance they’d chat to each other every night and this summer they’re going to a camp. They were overflowing with excitement! Chatting through what activities they wanted to do together and negotiating through the list. There was even some mutual sighing about the challenges of older siblings. It did my heart good to see a positive pairing when so I often I am dealing with the fallout from less than agreeable ones!!
Along that theme I found out this week that an acquaintance we knew and haven’t seen in a while had died and no one knew. I felt so bad. No one should have to die alone and certainly should be missed.
Go check on your neighbours and text your older friends. Hug those close to you. Life is short. Make the most of today.
See you soon, when I’ve tried to Carpe Diem!! xx
