Hoppy Christmas deer friend

I'm having a "vacation" during august from the sweetpea DT so there will be no weekly SP cards from me during this month. Instead I'm taking out all the fab stamps I haven't had the chance to play with yet. There will be one sweetpea hop in the middle of the month that I will participate in, so stay tuned. There is a fabulous new release coming soon.

Ever had one of those cards that just doesn't want to get done? Well, this was a card like that. It started out great with the cute image from whiff of joy. Fab colouring if I may say so and great papers to match. All possibilities to turn out great and then - FRUSTRATION. I started on this over a week ago and it's been laying on my crafttable ever since, not wanting to play. I hate when something starts out beautifully, but messes in the end. I don't like just whipping those cards up in the end because they always start out with so much potential. In the end however I had to admit defeat and just finish it somehow so I could move on to something else. Not sure what's wrong with it, but something is just off. Not my best work I must admit, but I'm sure I'll be happy having it right around Christmas when I noticed I'm waaaay behind on Christmascards (AGAIN!) :D
