There's a funny story behind this card, well it's funny NOW, but at the time I could have strangulated myself for my own stupidity!! I had a request for this card and had months in which to make it, left it till the last minute and then made it last week, just the box to do and voila! I was also making the big black and white card for Carolyn (next post) so stuff everywhere, (come on own up you're just as bad!!) so I decided to try out my new glimmer mist in peacock green or something, so I sprayed it onto some cardstock and thought, ang on... where's the fabulous colour? you're way ahead of me aren't you, YES, I'd got the nozzle the wrong way round and sprayed all over the heart card and splattered the B&W card too, ARGHHHHHH what a numpty! I couldnt believe my eyes (or stupidity) when they shouted 'BRAINS' I thought they said 'STRAINS' and shot to the back of the queue!! I wanted thick HAIR and a thin BODY and wrong queue's again!!! I digress, so... I immediately threw a tantrum and ripped all the bits off the card for salvage, and had to start again!! I'm going to call it a 'happy accident' cos I wasnt struck on the first one anyway, it was tooooo pink, the lady wanted pink with butterfly's but I thought it was too much and sprayed it with green ink deliberately, so nurghh!! by the way, I've already thanked the very talented Tracey Gough for this beautiful design, but another mention won't go amiss!! to see the original one she designed please look on her blog, its full of wonderful creations she's an inspiration to a very lot of people, thanks Tracey xx

I made this one for a chap at work, he wanted something different in lemon colours so I did this and I think this is ok but I'm not very good at these cards, I'm not sure what I'm any good at but it certainly isnt this!! never mind, I enjoyed doing it and the beading was interesting on vellum!! I thought I'd be a clever dick and see if I could put something in the comments box and it let me, I naturally put something modest!!!!! and now I don't know how to get rid of it... looks really sad when you have to leave YOURSELF some nice comments, anyone know how to get rid of it please??
