Whiff Of Joy Challenge Card


I made this card for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge this afternoon but couldn't get it posted because my computer totally crashed on me !! I used Barry's computer earlier to do some blog hopping but it's just not the same lol. But Barry fixed it for me so I have my own one back now, yay. It's handy to live with a computer repair man lol.
I'm not happy with this card at all. I ran out of double sided tape and had to use glue which dried all weird (I hate glue by the way), and the sentiment is on a completely different colour paper than the image. I normally stamp my image and the sentiment on the same piece of paper/card but Lorraine sent me this image so obviously I couldn't do that and it wasn't until after I stuck it down I realised so I have posted it anyway but I will change it later. That's if it doesn't end up in the bin before then (I will save the image first though!)
I've had a real boring day today, nothing to tell you at all, but I do have some news that I will be telling you in a few days hopefully (got to check if it's okay to tell everyone first). I've been dying to say something, I'm so rubbish at keeping my mouth shut lol, even my fingers are twitching to tell you! maybe some of you will be able to guess what it is?
I'm off to visit some of your blogs since I have my own computer back :) Oh and while I remember my Son
Liam has just posted his first card on his blog. He has just started cardmaking and was really nervous about showing you all his cards (he's only 11).
If you have a minute please pop over and welcome him to blog land, it would make his day :)

Hi Lora I and many others know what its like to make a card but it doesn't come out the way you want and everything seems to go wrong I am so glad you got the images ok and that you have started to put them to good use. Funny I just sent you an e-mail to thank you for the gorgeous candy which I got this afternoon gosh I didn't realise there was so much and I love it all. I do love the colours you have used on the card and image and I love that sentiment but I know what you mean about being a different colour. I am off to have a peek at your sons blog now.

Hugs
Lorraine x

And Liam certainly has your talent. I left him a comment too.

Big hugs, girlfriend!
