Makeover Monday



Do you remember the days, not so long ago, when monogram cards were the hot topic for swaps. Well, this was one of my first attempts. OH MY GOODNESS (had to spell this one out in full for emphasis). As you can see, it's all crumpled up. That's because it was in the bottom of the box that holds my creations. In my opinion, it should have stayed there, never to see the light of day again. Yes, at one time I considered this card a creation! Can you believe it? Thank goodness those days are OVER!
The makeover card uses the letter "k". Being the good Mom that I am, when I bought monograms, I chose to buy my DDs initials, rather than my own, so I couldn't re-create it with the same monogram. The stamps are from CTMH and the paper is SU. I added a little sheer ribbon and paper pierced the corners. I would be happy to send this one to my daughter, Kirsten.
The good news is that the B card (as in B movie) never saw the light of day until I picked it from the bottom of the box. I don't even think it will go back there, it may just find a suitable corner of my circular file. Thanks for dropping by, it's always good to see a friend.

I adore makeover monday. You are my favorite monday blog visit. Great makeover...I hardly recognize it. Sadly some of my early work is out there in a landfill somewhere. LOL

What a great job you did. I cringe when I take a look back at some of my earlier work! It can be painful!

I like your make-over Mondays. I pulled out a card I made 4 years ago, and OMG I had a "what was I thinking" minute. Point is, we all do it. TFS
