Take My Heart: The Great Mistake

 Hello Crafters! 

It's been a minute since I created a card where things got so out of hand that I couldn't fix it quickly and simply. Today's card  put an end to that run. haha. 

I'm a big fan of most of the thing released in Simon Says Stamp's collection called "Hey Love".  One of the things I was looking forward to the most is Suzy's Paintables. These are pre-designed card fronts that allow me to just color. With all the stress of the holidays and running around like a chicken with my head cut off I couldn't wait to sit down and just color. No thinking, just happiness. 

Or so I thought. 

Oh don't get me wrong it still came out super charming and adorable but it was a long walk folks. And it was my own fault. 

If you've got the time you can watch the fall and rise of this card in the video below. When I say it's all fixable this card proves I'm right :) 

See what I'm saying? Like I said in the video I left it in and shared it simply because we all make mistakes. ALL. Me, you, the card artist you think makes nothing but cards made of gold. Every single one of us. 

And guess what?
It's completely okay. 
How about that?
You're cards are awesome even with their mistakes. I promise. 

Thanksso much for dropping in tonight! 
I'll be back tomorrow to share one more before we head into 2017!



  1. Super adorable Kelly. I just love how you colored your balloon.

  2. Oh my, Kelly! I loved hearing you laugh at your mistake! Loved seeing you colorful the amazing critter and the balloon turned out beautifully.

  3. OMG love it!! Really enjoyed the video and your sense of humor! Happy to know you're not perfect! LOL have a great New Year's :)

  5. LOVE the heart. That was what caught my attention. And I love your gray raccox too. 😂 Another fantastic video.

  6. Now I am intrigued...looking forward to you tube time. Fabulous colors on that balloon.

  7. Honest to God, Kelly. I love watching you as much (and in the same way) as I do NCIS. Mostly because I love it soooo much but will NEVER EVER do anything they do. The card is gorgeous. Bet you need refills....
