Ok – So No One Said I Had To Be Tidy

After tearing the edges of my card blank for my make on Friday, I’m now finding it very hard to go back to the straight line!

I had made the topper for today’s make with all the texture, Unity stamps and mass of horizontal and diagonal lines but it just would not sit right on the straight edge card blank. So I just carried on tearing.

The wonderful quote and fabulous compass (I’m a bit into my maps so I love this type of thing) are a part of the All About The Journey Unity stamp kit, you can get the kit over at Make The Day Special.

Great quote don’t you think? – 

‘Go Confidently in the direction of your dreams

live the life you have imagined’

– Henry David Thoreau

All this distressing and tearing? I wonder if it is a reflection of my mood?

Have a fun day you all.
