I think "k" is for "kinda glad this is done"! This card was not very fun for me. Fussy cutting makes me fussy or even downright grouchy! After I finished it this morning, I left it to its own devices and when I came back hours later, I thought "k" is for "kinda like it"! So far I am batting zero for the challenge extras, but I am being motivated to make at least one card a week! Really enjoying this challenge!

I smiled as I read your description because I'm not much of a fan of fussy cutting either - though I find it less annoying than I used to thankfully! This is a lovely CAS design and a fabulous sentiment! No worries about the double challenge either, just have fun...in spite of the fussy cutting!

Thank for this card!!!! The sentiment is just what I have been looking for - because all the other "don't quit" ones have become so cliche. The Keys!!! Love them, how brilliant is this combination!!!!!! Fabulous! You merely proved that creativity is augmented when a challenge goes with it! Wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing.

I absolutely love this! What an awesome and powerful sentiment - so true too! The keys are super pretty and so worth your fussy cutting adventure. A very special creation. You deserve extra cookies regardless. Hugz

Boy oh boy, am I ever glad I am going back through the galleries to comment on cards because I know I was meant to see your wonderful card here with this amazing sentiment! This was an "ah-ha" moment for me for sure and I thank you for that. I love these rustic keys and I applaud you for fussy cutting them out. Here is another take on fussy cutting (that will maybe help): my mother is no longer able to use her hands and she tells me all the time, "you are so blessed to be able to use your hands." Maybe when you are fussy cutting you can feel blessed you are able to use your hands. We all have our "thing" we like to do and don't like to do, so I get that. Hugs my friend and thank you for making and sharing this amazing card! ~Karen.
