It's a good day

Howdy friends!

I've got a simple little card to share with you today and can I just say it felt good to pull together some pattern paper scraps for this one... it was like finding a long lost friend after all these no DP challenges. LOL, ok so maybe that's being a bit dramatic but I gotta say that I felt like I was finally back in my comfort zone. :)

Now I was experimenting with a new hair color combo here and to be perfectly honest I'm not that thrilled with the results. BUT it wasn't a complete train wreck and I really loved pairing little WS Paul with this Kid Quote sentiment so I used him anyway. Doesn't he just look a bit guilty of maybe getting into a scrap and trying to act all innocent now? Heehee... yea I thought so too. ;)
I also thought it would be good to share that I don't always get the results I'm aiming for on the first try either. Like everyone else I'm constantly learning and practicing and honing my craft and it's inevitable that I'll have an off moment now and then.... nobody is perfect!

So even though this may not be my most "WOW" card, I learned something from it and that, as Martha Stewart would say, is a good thing. :)

TTFN!
