I was feeling inspired this morning to get in my craft room and make cards - I don't feel inspired now!! How can things go so badly wrong?!! If you have had one of these days - read on for a laugh at my expense!

Big splotchy inks spots, where there should have been pristine white cardstock! Oh no! What to do? Cut the bottom off! Rescued - yah!
