Black and White Christmas

I have days when I stamp a background and love it then I add a piece to the front and it all goes wrong this was a card I was going to bin, then a lightbulb turned on & I thought I should show it to you all I wanted you to see that I have bad card days too.

So After subjecting you to the bad card I thought I would give you something back so I made a snowflake background for you to use in your cardmaking, if you use the background leave a link in the comments as it would be lovely to see what you make.

If that's a bad card day, then I must have a disasterous card day every day.

Personally I rather like thi card, not overstated and I would be pleased to receive it.

Will try to do something equally bad, if I am lucky

I think we'd better just agree to differ about bad card days Jak because I wouldn't want us to have a falling out!! That said, we each have our own standards and I think it's brave to post something that you feel hasn't come up to yours - the fact that I think it's lovely is neither here nor there...... :))

Well, I actually like this Jak, so it just shows that we are all far too critical of our own work! Below is a link to a card I recently made using one of your previous gifts, I'm so grateful as I think these images are just beautiful, so Thank You Jak!

Another fabulous card Jak, I can only wish my bad cards were as beautiful as yours. Now mine truly are things for the bin.

OK, give us a hint: WHY don't you like it? The only thing I can think of that might be needed is either the year or a Happy Holidays to the right of your scalloped circles. It REALLY is great as is!
