Ah, a memorable quote from early on in Gone with the Wind by one of the uptight prissy girls jealous of fabulously vivacious Scarlett.
Those words apply to much of what we create here at Look Mama. We often have a couple of versions of a card knocking around and eventually have to choose one of them to send to print, and it is not always the fabulously vivacious one that makes the cut. Much as we know people will hoot with laughter or say “How awful” whilst laughing, we still need them to love it enough to want to buy it <marry it!> and not just flirt with the idea of buying it.
See below for example. The left one is the one we wanted to print <so badly> and the right one is the one we did print. I can’t help looking at the left one and going “Coulda, woulda shoulda…” But yeah, probably not… maybe one day we will do a book of all the cards that missed out.
