Yes thats right... stork ! lol...
Im calming myself down from a very upsetting morning... :
I made a card yesterday for a customer, requirements... for great grandma... twins .. one of each flavour. (not yet born) so no dates, spent most of yesterday printing, cutting and sticking etc etc.. (not all day on one card ... !! lol)..but long enough... picked out correct ribbons.. went off down stairs, popped back up later picked up ribbons and card, and spent forever getting them placed and curled and stuck just where I wanted them. Asked a friends opinion this morning... and she mentioned that the 'blue'ribbon looked turquoise, but probably cos of light or piccy... i told her it was baby blue... !!! Well the one I had chosen, WAS ! ... however, in my haste and bad light, I actually picked up the wrong one, and didnt notice last night (due to bad light and bad eyes) lol... after she mentioned it and I brought it up today to finish... yep you got it... she was right. Wrong one !!!! so in ... huh hum.... temper.... (sorry, but I did lose it a bit) ... I pulled the ribbon off .. not so carefully... was past caring... and .. needless to say... had to cut everything off thecard and start again. not easy cutting round a storks legs when decoupaged and already on decent card stock ! (or maybe I need yet another pair of new sharp skissors?? ) LOL

So for all my troubles ... here is the óffending'card lol... with new ribbons. well new most stuff.. hehe... thought I would be clever and experiment with text.. (another reason took so long ) ... so ... for all my efforts, I hope the customer likes it !
Stuart has offered up some scrummy candy... check it out.. but you will have to be quick as it finishes tonight.. (and its Sarah Kaye...!)
Olga also has some fabby candy too... and she has some lovely cards, that I think are slightly different to a lot Ive come across lately, I love them.. (6/11)
and another one... at one of my fav blogs... Funky Fairy..
