Did you ever have a day were you should have just stayed in bed! LOL… Well this card comes with a story, My card was almost complete and in my normal fashion I started to bind my flowers, this time I stuck my thumb with one of the wires. I didn’t think much of it as I often do this and it’s only a surface scratch but this time I caused it to bleed and didn’t notice till I looked down at my lovely yellow card and saw red, oh dear, one for the bin, off to put a band aid on my thumb, Take 2..start a new card, I come to stamping my sentiment and that’s when I learnt that band aids are very slippery!! The clear block slipped out of my hand and rolled ink side up onto my image…ARGHhhh Colour Daisy take 3. As you can see below I did finally manage to complete my card but for a time there I wasn’t so sure. Some days you have no option but to just smile and get on with it.
