Look, I am not even going to start to make excuses for this card. I think it's a weird one and I cannot even begin to justify it nor can I honestly say that it looks any better in person. Ha! All I know is I wanted to play along with this Week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for no reason other than for the very true challenge being that I could not think of a darn thing to make from this sketch that was even remotely clever or insightful. Nada. Zip. Zilch. All I could think of was to play it straight. Then I started crafting this card "playing it straight" and next thing I know I have got chain mail in my hand and Spellbinders Labels 4 Grand dies in my sights. Uh oh. So not playing it straight. I just went with it and next thing I knew I was doing my best (or possibly my worst) Edward Scissorhands impersonation and that, as they say folks, was that. Maybe cards are like what is often said about people: "That it takes all kinds to make the world go round." *prays*
Um, er...I did warn you. But really, thanks beautiful folks for swinging by. I hope your not too traumatized by what you've just seen here. *wink*
