Get Well Soon
I set out to make a card for a good friend of mine that's not too well at the moment but it was one of those days. You know the ones where nothing goes to plan! So, this is my FOURTH attempt at the background ... one layer was brayered and every time it just went wrong and had to be binned. I am talking seriously unrecoverable!!
Worse still, in between drying times, I was finishing another new piece which involved gluing a large piece of tissue paper which I had printed text onto. Well, I should have know better than to attempt it today as I battled with it all covered in glue and ready to fall apart at any moment! Yep - it folded in on itself, ripped in half and generally misbehaved! I had to reprint it THREE times and unjam the printer TWICE!!!
But finally, I am done. I can send the card to my friend and sit back and admire the tissue paper with a well earned cuppa.
Hope your day has gone better than mine! xx
