I have to tell you that this boring little card has caused me so much distress & bother. After I had such a lovely and relaxing time coloring this image from the Flower for All Seasons set, I decided that I would love to try the weaving technique. What a disaster. I tried it with large strips of cardstock, and it ended up looking like a big chess board, then I tried it with these tiny little strips...about 3 very frustrating hours later I have a very crooked piece of weaved something or other. Another hour or so trying to straighten it out (without ripping it!). I got it to the best that I could and then nothing I did with it looked any good! Grrrrrr! So I ended up whacking it onto a small square card with a big bow and put it away. That was now 2 weeks ago, and when I look at it now, it does not seem all that bad, not my most lovely or inspiring of creations, but not too bad. However, it certainly does not reflect the amount of time spent on it!
