Spots,Stripes and BOYS

Hello Everyone,

Well today is turning out jolly cold from 5am till the sun sneaked out..but now...Gorgeous.

Fabulous morning for taking photos of cards,,,so ere you go..

Woo hoo!! crooked buttons. I squeezed the glue gun, and it would not come out, squeezed a bit harder, sort of pumped it a bit, and a great big blob dripped out onto my finger which was under the finger holding the button,
Hells bells it was hot...I dropped the button onto the card so quick....and it was crooked, but too bad my finger..owww!!! after the drama and a few choice words, I started peeling the glue of my finger, it was hurting, so had a closer look, and it was SKIN I was peeling off. I had blistered and thought it was dried glue, well!, very pretty finger this morning.

Oh! the joys of crafting...

My card is for two challenges at Here come the boys  [spots and stripes]

                                                    Crafty Card Makers  [spots and stripes]

Now that couldn't be easier...for me anyway.

Papers are basic grey [life of the party] Kenny K image, coloured with pencils,cute little paper clip I picked up in a jar at K mart...buttons.. the double up thing again...from my stash of millions.

Thats it, I'm taking my poor finger, which will never wear a ring on it again,[ well thats how it feels] and going to sit in this warm winter sun, and idea for what, but when it comes I will know.
