Whiff of Joy challenge.

Oh what "fun" I had making this card. There seemed to be one mishap after another. First I decided to use one of my 3 Whiff of Joy stamps. On inking it up, I somehow managed to drop the stamp pad - yes you guessed it upside down on my clothes - duh. I then decided to use some paints that I had been given. I don't know the name of them but they are a little like the H20's. Well on painting my image, the image started to disappear!!! I then had to redraw the image over the top of the paints before all the lines completely went.

Next - the challenge is to use pearls and swirls - I don't have any pearls. On looking at other blogs they have made their own pearl swirls and I thought I'd join the club, but...... I don't have any pearls only pearl beads .......... yes I cut all the beads in half. Well I didn't know whether to laugh or cry - the beads were pinging and popping everywhere. I nearly decided not to continue but perseverance got the better of me. Now after cutting all my beads in half (very precariously with my craft knife) - what do I use to glue them on - my glue pen didn't work, so out came the silicon. A little squeeze too much and it got all over my hands, the tweezers kept getting stuck up with the silicon, the paper was getting too gloopy. I felt like I did at primary school and needed someone to clean me up!

Anyway after another big debate on the flowers and thinking I need to purchase some larger ones I put together a little ensemble. So here it is..

Ta da ........ what do you think - honestly .......

Well that's enough of the waffling for now - husband just rolls his eyes at me, but I know that you kind soles can relate to this on some level!
