Ugliest Card Blog Hop

Happy April Fools Day!

My friend Suzanne is hosting a fun April Fool's Blog Hop today to celebrate.


It is a chance for us to look back at our old card making styles and laugh at ourselves.
For me it wasn't hard to go back to the beginning of my blogging career and find a card that I can't believe I ever posted.  When I look at this I see a sloppy bow, die embossing with ragged edges and the bottom of the focal panel punched with a pretty punch and then the corners rounded?  What was I thinking?  I like to think that my style has evolved more since then, but this is such fun!

You should do the same and have fun too, go to Suzanne's post and link up!

This isn't so bad. Nice colors, and great ribbon. Go over and check mine out if you really want to see ugly!!!

I didn't notice the punched and rounded part until you pointed it out...I am almost afraid to go back and look at my worst...which ONE will I choose?

Lisa said...

I can't bring myself to call this card "ugly" but it isn't your best work, that's for sure! TFS :)

Joyce said...

OK, so this is not your best work! But, still is very sweet. I do think you have improved over time.

Jackie Rockwell said...

At least your card has some very pretty colors. Mine is dark and muddy looking. LOL! I think it's a cute card but you sure have come a long way baby! :)

laughadaisy said...

Awwwww, now it's not THAT bad, poor card. ;-) Maybe not your proudest moment, but the colors and polka dots are fantastic! You all are so brave to do this! I'd have to spend hours combing through my 'ugly' cards just to pick one...

Michelle said...

LOL! Tracey, this card is pretty, despite it's imperfection. ;-) Definitely not ugly.:-)

Marybeth said...

To be honest Tracey I have many that look just like that one. Yours is not ugly though! Not your perfect style you have now but not ugly!

Jean Martin said...

lol Tracey! This is not ugly at all. OK it's not perfect but seriously, it's not ugly. And I'm glad to say that your cards are wonderful! :) My style keeps changing, I can hardly keep up with it! lol. I think we're all like that! :)

When I saw your name, I thought, "Oh, I'm so sure. Like she has ever made an ugly card!" And I was right! This doesn't have your current perfect polish, granted, but I can still see your Tracey style written all over it in terms of the layout and the colors. TFS and Happy April Fool's Day!!

Jen said...

Compared to my ugly card this is downright adorable! It's so fun to see how our card-making styles have evolved over time!

Bonnie aka raduse said...

This is not bad at all. I really like it a lot.

Sharron said...

Oh, Tracey, it's not ugly! Your work is so pristine and perfect that you see those little imperfections but most people would never notice. This might be considered more cute than beautiful but definitely not ugly!

Leigh said...

What a fun blog hop! It's so fun to see how our styles have changed (& improved!) TFS!

Patrice said...

If this is your ugliest card, you've got no problems...LOL!

Kelly S. said...

Punched edges are STILL hard for me...thank goodness for dies nowadays LOL! At least this card has a design and sweet colors! And I love me a polka dotted bow even if it is floating, giggle. Such a fun hop today!

Jeanne J said...

I see a few technical errors but still love the idea and the colors - so NOPE - not a mistake!

Vickie Z said...

This is not ugly girl... Maybe not perfect, but definitely not ugly!! This has been a fun blog hop....chuckling all the way!!

Suzanne said...

You know that scene from TV "Whatchu talkin' 'bout?" LOL! This is not so bad, Tracey! I actually really love the colors and the design - not entirely perfect, but I know what it's like to just not love something in the end. Thanks for playing along!!!
