The card that caused a mess...

I know, I know...can you believe it? I'm posting for my third day in a row...craziness, huh? Can I just say that this week is going by extremely slow? It is only Wednesday...ugh! Apparently I'm just used to have things to do and places to go with the kids. I can't wait for Kyler to get home!

So, the cuteness of this card would not be appreciated without the knowledge of what my craft desk looked like while making it. Yep, that is right...take a look at the photo to the left (enlarge it if you dare). I was going to glue down the top embossed portion to the black base and the glue wouldn't come out so I squeezed a little harder and well...you see the result, glue absolutely everywhere. The glue was on the floor, on my shirt, on my desk, and on my keyboard. It was an absolute mess. I sat there for about 5 seconds just in amazement and then figured I should get it cleaned up since it is quick dry glue. Thankfully it came off of just about everything...except my clothes...bummer!

Anyway, this card is a simple SU! only card that is 4x4. I love that size for quick cards like thank you notes. Inside is a piece of whisper white cardstock on which I stamped the flower again, that just finishes off this card nicely. The flower is from the set Fast & Fabulous which is a hostess set in the new IB&C.

The only thing about not having any boys at home with me is that I don't feel guilty about spending time in my craft room which is why I've had cards to share. I have a portion of a card sitting on my desk that I'll finish off today and hopefully show you in the next couple of days, too. I'm loving my stamp time!

Cute card! So glad that nothing important was damaged with the mess. ISn't it funny how something just happens to disrupt your entire day. But the card turned out lovely!

very pretty card, thanks for the good laugh about the glue as I've learned to point it away from me when I do that or over the garbage...based on experience ;-)

This is a great card. I know what you mean about a long week. It is even a short week here and I still can't believe it is only Wed.
So sorry to hear about the glue. I have had that happen to me before but not as badly. I am glad that it came out of everything.
