WOYWW 223 (Goldfinger.....!)

Now why did that song come into my head? Well it could be because my work trays are full of all things golden!  Yes, I've been asked to make another Golden Wedding card.  What an achievement huh! (The golden wedding, not my cardmaking efforts!).
Another achievement is making it here to WOYWW as my screen is going kaput....!  I'm not sure how much longer it will last.  It keeps turning itself off when I'm using it. 

As I was using all things gold I also took the chance to make some other gold things I might need for my next Christmas card. 

Oh yes, you see those lovely golden flowers? Well they don't look like it anymore!  After taking the photo, I put my trimmer across the little tray and cut some card.....then after taking it off, noticed my flowers were all squished!!!  The glue hadn't dried totally and they were all ruined...! Cue sad face!!  I only have one piece of the matt gold card, so it's cutting it a bit fine (no pun intended!).

Before I wear out my !!!!! key, I will now leave you all to go snooping around the world...have fun!!!

Oh, don't forget to check out my previous post to see the "Bird Sympathy Card" I made.

Oh no - disaster! And they were so lovely too. We've all done it though - and we never learn - it comes form trying to do too many things at once - or just being caught up in a creative frenzy.

Hope you can eke out your last piece of card... Good luck MMx #76

Oh, it's heartbreaking when you do that sort of thing, isn't it? I have only got a tiny bit of room to work in and I forget to move wet or sticky things right out of the way! Sorry to hear about your screen too! Hope you can get it fixed soon! Happy WOYWW. Julie Ann xx #42

Well, shoot, you were just having a heck of a time weren't you, squishing gorgeous flowers and failing monitors! I'm sorry that happened! Your cards in the previous post are all very lovely, Karen! Happy WOYWW and thanks for coming to visit me earlier! Have a wonderful couple of weeks! Darnell #24

It is nice to know that we all do things like that! :) but a GF used to say "it is only paper!" You can always do something with it, turn it over, squish it more or you get the idea! :)Happy WOYWW!

Eliza said...

Hey you are not the only one that has done that sort of thing nor will you be the last, but it is horrible when we do it. Beautiful cards. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment and sorry for getting back so late, Im just running out of time with work.
