2nd September 2011 - A word of Caution!

Well I need to warn you about a particular hazaard I have just discovered: glue dots and wet nails do not go together well!  I was just about to take a picture of my card to post and thought mmm could do with something just sticking down a bit.  I tried to squeeze some glossy accents in but that didn't hold so I thought I know what will do it - a glue dot.  Bearing in mind I had just done my nails cause I'm going out soon to meet a friend for coffee, I thought I'm sure I could just do it.  Not as easy as that when you're trying hard not to smudge your nails, tried tweezers then everything was stuck to the end of the tweezers - glue dot, card and my nails grrrrrr!  I have now managed but put an extra coat of polish on to hide the smudges lol.

I have used a Magnolia Tilda image which are always so cute.  The papers are from Nitwit which have a fab sale on all weekend - everything is reduced by 34% OMG my poor bank manager. I have used a Doohickey die for the border and spellbinder for the frame.  I will enter in the following challenges:

Always Something Creative - Use Pink and Brown
Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Ribbon or Lace
Desert Island Crafts Challenge - Itenary (Choose 3 items from 10, I chose dry embossing, flowers and use a little green)
Cute Card Thursday - Use at least 1 Punch
Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Let's emboss it
Crafting for All Seasons - Bingo (I chose Ribbon, Glitter and flowers)
Crafty Creations - Use at least 3 punches/die cuts
Fab Funky Challenges - Embossing
Thanks for looking, take care xx
