Ugliest Card Blog Hop

Today, on April Fool's Day, I present to you my entry for Suzanne's

Egads!  What in the world was I thinking?  Well, I know what I was thinking.  This was for World Card Making Day in 2009, and Papertrey's challenge was to think "Australia".  I think I got the challenge okay, but what an UGLY card!  I'm pretty sure I threw this one away.  Sometimes challenges are not my friends.

I'm sure I could've found even more cards to show you.  I did finally go through and throw most of my uglies away--many of which I never photographed.  You're welcome!


  1. Oh wow! You totally nailed the inspiration though! Love this hop!

  2. You DID nail the inspiration...
    totally Australia! :)
    I love this hop and how we can proudly show our "what was I thinking"...
    I feel so free now! :)

  3. I have to agree that you nailed the inspiration - totally has the aboriginal feel. This blog hop has me crying I am laughing so hard. Feel free to hop over to my ugly!

  4. Too fun, Cheryl! I don't know Australia, but this would be great for an American cowboy-themed card!! Thanks for being brave and joining in the hilarity!!

  5. Oh I can totally see where you were going with your Aboriginal art, Cheryl! But yes, this may not be the sunniest of cards LOL! It seems that I chose a similar hue of "blech" for the base of my winning ugly card, LOL!

  6. I can see where you were going with your inspiration from the challenge theme, but I don't think it's all that bad.

  7. This isn't nearly as bad as mine! What fun, and thanks for sharing.

  8. Cheryl, I don't think it's so bad...did you make all those dots with a white pen? That would have sent me straight to the funny farm!
    Thanks for joining the hop!!!

  9. I don't think it's that bad either! Certainly not up to your usual caliber though!
