Gimme A Break  Challenge #21
Use Tearing somewhere on your project

 I made this card, tore it up and remade it. Tore it up again, remade it again. However, I don't think the challenge was to tear up the card. LOL I used to use tearing on a lot of my projects. Many of my scrapbook pages have tearing. I haven't done tearing in a long while. It was fun then and its still fun now. 
The Pacific Point blue is torn at a slant. I tore off the corners of the teal instead of using a  punch.  The squirrel image is heat embossed in white, I heat embossed the sunflower on Tangerine Tango, cut it out and applied it using a pop dot. The sentiment is stamped in Dusty Durango.
The image is from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps.
I enjoyed looking at all the submissions to the GAB challenge this past week and am anxious to see what is going to be submitted this next week. Being on the DT, one of my jobs is to check out all the submissions and comment on them. Its not a job, its a perk!
Leave a comment here, a challenge submission at GAB and I will visit your blog. Take care

First of all, thank you for this post! The tiny bit of humor in it has me bursting out in laughter and I really needed that. I know it's only Tuesday but my week has been a nightmare.
Yes, I too have had to tear up and start over. I do have a rule that I will only tear up once though.
Your efforts were not in vain because the card is delightful. Love the darling squirrel.

This is such a sweet card, Joyce! Love that little squirrel and the effect of using white embossing on the coloured papers is very striking. You had me laughing with your post ~ I'm glad you finally quit tearing up your cards :)
