So, for a good laugh (and without going into detail because this card doesn't deserve it), here's my ugly card that I made for last week's inspiration challenge (you can see that HERE).  I started out thinking that Basic Black CS squares would be super neat and went downhill from there ;)


  1. NOT ugly! NOT ugly! NOT ugly! Maybe not your best work, but it is NOT UGLY. Actually, I kinda like it.

    And KUDOS for posting a card you don't like yourself. I do it a lot, and it's refreshing to see others do the same. ;-)

  2. Nah, this isn't ugly at all! It's not your run-of-the-mill card, but I like it because it's so interesting!

  3. I am actually quite enjoying the strong contrasts on this card :D The B & W squares are wonderful with the touch of teal and the tiny hint of lavender on the side. Nothing wrong with this card at all :D

  4. I luv this, the checkered blocks are awesome...great job.....I have something for you on my blog.....please don't feel like you have to take it.

    enjoy *~*

  5. I really like that black checkerboard at the bottom! The whole card is NOT ugly at all, it's very pretty! I know I do that sometimes too, it doesn't turn out like you want or expected and you end up being really hard on yourself, and then other people end up loving it! Who knows, that's why we post and share them! =)

  6. I don't think it's ugly either!! The checkerboard is really cool, and I can totally see the inspiration from the photo!

  7. love it :) diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks. ;)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
