Triangle card for this weeks challenge

Good Morning Ladies, 

Please don't look too close at todays card, It's a long way from petfect, it would appear I have lost my 'Mojo'. 

After about 3 attempts at a more involved card, all I had to do was mask of the intricate text area of a stamp, cover one with a mask and then repeat, I was stamping onto Bristol smooth card which isn't cheap, after wasting one and a half sheets I gave up, evertmy attempt I got a smudge of a bit of text faintly stamped, I got so frustrated in the end I gave up. Please tell me I'm not the only one this happens to.!  I then spent another hour or so trying to think of another idea.  You know what happens when you open Pinterest. 

I rummaged through my dies and decided on triangles.  The papers I used were a £1 set of 6x6 papers I got from Every Crafts a pound a few years ago.  I die cut a few and backed them onto some 300gsm white card for strength so that the pieces would sit better on the card.    I arranged the triangles and adhered them, I added a few tiny ones to fill a gap. Then stamped a sentiment in a colour to match the Butterflies on the papers.  I die cut some tiny Butterflies to embellish the card and that was that. 

Here's hoping for a more successful day today!

I Hope that you all have a good day too,

Love and hugs to all,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx 


  1. I know you’re disappointed with this card But I like it and with a change of colour and no butterflies would be a great man card too
    Maybe today will prove better 90% of the time I get a smudge and card ends up in the bin and it’s all very well these demonstrators saying “it’s only a piece of card” but we’ve paid good money for this card
    We’re on emergency grandchildren day today Daughter’s partner has had to go into work So I am starting work early in order that I can relieve husband!
    Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    I like your card Sandra, pretty paper used.
    How many times am I not happy with what I make 😂 so many times they have gone in the bin and I given up 🙄 New week, new challenge so fingers crossed.
    Have fun Karen being with Charlie and Oscar later today.
    Lilian, take care. Healing hugs to you.
    Brenda, you managed to post your comment 🤭🤫 best not say more. Hoping you are alright.
    Michele, hope you didn't do too much over the weekend. You must take care.
    Going out a bit this morning over to Frost and then back home to finish the mess/tidying up I started yesterday, well that is the idea anyway 😉
    Have a nice day everyone and many hugs to you all 🤗 xoxo

  3. Hi everyone
    Your card is great Sandra, don’t be too hard on yourself, we all have off days when nothing seems to go right. I love the pretty papers and the tiny butterflies are perfect 😊
    Just back from having my car MOT, it passed 😊 Advisory of a nail in tyre but I was aware of that.
    Not doing much for the rest of the day!
    Have a good evening everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx
