Am I smarter than a 5th grader? After today I’m not so sure. Why? What have I been doing all day you ask?

Well, minus probably 3-ish hours I have been working on a card. Yes, you read that right A card(1)!!

Things started off so smoothly. I created a night color blended background, color blended some darkish(for night) grass. I even got some doodads die cut.

That’s when time started to stand still….hmm technically I s’pose it shifted into hyper fast forward. This is also about the time I started to question my education level.

At first things seemed easy enough and even worked the first time. That is until I started to put things together. You see I am working on making my first card using Chibitronics(which are so cool).

As I was saying, my 3 lights worked when I tested my design. However, once I got them stuck down and my first layer glued the next test failed. Yup! I changed nothing other than adhering then so I could rip paper when troubleshooting.

Funny how destructive being careful can be…Ugh(5th grader??) You may have heat a crazy crafter scream. No worries, it was just me.

I spent the next many hours redoing one light at a time and taping it down before moving on. What? How far did I get? Ummm(counting on fingers) oh yea I got one consistently blinding me. Yup, 1(maybe I should play the lottery).

The more carefully I worked with still only that on light screaming at me it started to be kind of insulting. Oh did I forget to mention I had just realized I was working with my card upside down?

I cut the top off to attach to another card base if I ever complete the card. That’s when I decided it was bedtime.

Typing as I lay here….lol It takes me forever to sleep since they took away my knock out meds.

Incase your wondering I will be making more attempts tomorrow. The jury is still out on my intelligence level.

Update to follow tomorrow…..aren’t you excited?

AS ALWAYS KEEP ON CRAFTING & LOVIN’EVERY MINUTE! NO MATTEWHATYOUR STYLE!…WHILE YOU AT IT ENJOY ANY WRITING OR OTHER PROJECTS YOU LOVE!!
