life's truest happiness

I'm usually okay (and oftentimes prefer) lots of white space, but Friday's card wasn't working for me. I cut it apart and tried again ... twice, as it so happens. The first time I centered the sentiment, but the last penguin I stamped was missing a foot and skateboard, so I stamped it again, thinking I'd not moved the stamp-a-ma-jig ... NOT! OK, trashed that one, as it turned out to be a double-vision card. On my 2nd redeux, I decided to stamp the sentiment off-center, which I liked more, but I also smudged the penguins a bit. Sorry 'bout that! And I'd intended to pop up the penguins' bodies, which I'd stamped on white, over the baker's twine, but it looked TOO popped up, so the twine's now running across them. Sigh ... that's it, tho' ... I'm DONE w this one. So everything doesn't always work out they way I'd like ... I can live w that!
