Demotivated Mountain Goat

I bought these stamps from Copper Leaf Creations Rubber Stamps at the latest stamping convention. I just LOVED the look on the rams face.



So I stamped the "mountain peak" onto some reddish patterned paper that I have (it reminded me of the red mountain behind our house growing up) and cut out the mountain. I then stamped the ram near the top of my white piece and then glued the mountain below him (ha...no masking or coloring the mountain!) Then I needed a saying. I went to all these sites searching for "climbing quotes" or "mountain top quotes". I found a lot of good inspirational ones. But I really wanted something that went more appropriately with the look on his face. I remembered that one of the guys at work has screen savers from a site called Despair. They sell "de-motivational posters" where the photo looks like it's going to be serious but the saying underneath is just the opposite of motivating. Some are pretty funny. Anyways, that sent me off to search for "demotivational sayings". I found a different site that had this quote that I ended up using on my card.

Hope you like it!
