What we all fear

A nurse with a glove on giving you the look that says, do I look like I'm joking! LOL!!!

Do you ever have this great idea in mind for a card, then start making it and once it's finished it is so not that great idea you originally had?? Well that is exactly what happened with this card of mine, so if no-one really likes it I so won't be upset with you, cause it is not on my favourite.

The image is from Bugaboo stamps, yes again, shhhh not a word from anyone. But at least it is Margaret this time and not Stella. I coloured it with my prismacolor pencils blended with sansador (gamsol) and then I cut the image out with my craft knife. Oh boy did I realise how much my eyesight has gone, I could not see the lines to know where to cut, it was SO difficult, I even tried with a magnifying glass, but I needed a third hand, either to hold the image down or to hold the magnifying glass. Warning: watch out when you turn 40 everything goes downhill from there, woohoo! I layered my image on a nestie mat and the border at the bottom was done with the EK Success punch which my super talented friend Jeanie sent me.

Please let me know what you think of my not so favourite card, I'd love to know if it's just me or if the card is not the best ever :-)

Tomorrow is Friday, yay!


PS: Leanne let me know how I can contact you. I'll help with the colouring if I can!

I love your card! Actually, I love anything from Bugaboo! I haven't made one in ages, and I could really use a smile right now. You have inspired me to print a few and start colouring.

I like this prints... First I've got to buy a new printer and then buy these funny ladies ;o)

Oh the card is stunning M !! Suits our sense of humour too. Inside the card one can write "No, I'm really not joking - get better soon!"

Don't be so hard on yourself Meahni your card is gorgeous. Love Bugaboo digi stamps and the papers are lovely and fresh. And don't get me started on the them!!! Any sign of your stamps? xx

Hi Meahni,
Funny how often we do a card we're not sure about but everybody else thinks it's great. Well this one made me laugh, I think it works, Great image, fabulous punched borders and great colours.
I love it.

Hi Meahni

I know just what you mean, I made a Christmas card the other day, it took ages, and when it was finished I still didn't like it!!

As far as your card goes, if you want honesty, in my opinion the only thing that doesn't quite work is the green bobbly trim. The rest is PERFECT!

I really like the image and how you cut it out. Your coloring is PERFECT but I'd run the other way if she was my nurse!! YIKES!
