In my World...LOL

Because sometimes you just have to wonder about yourself...

Anyone see something wrong with this card? Well, if you don't right off the bat...that makes me feel better. Because not only did I make the mistake when ordering the stamps but I made it when putting the card together...

Need a hint? Probably not...

The last time I checked, in the world that I have to live in everyday, Peter Cottontail is NOT a chick...

I ordered the stamp with full intention of using it just like I did on the card above. I put it together and then, 2 hours later, I realized my mistake...This card took me forever to put together, lots of cutting, and I actually had to draw parts of it, on top of that getting the eggs decorated was not easy either. So realizing my mistake really upset me. But I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea on how to save what I had.


Here is the fixed card, I don't like the shape as much and i couldn't figure out how to put the ribbon on but all in all I think it is a good save without having to re-do the entire card.

All stamps are from Repeat Impressions...

I hope you get a good laugh out of this one...I have been walking around the past few days telling everyone (that knows about the mistake) that they are having a "Peter Cottontail" when they make a silly laughable mistake...It very well could become one of our new household phrases.

OK-- your goof was good for a laugh! We've all done it!!! Cute idea to use the quilt squares on the egg!

It really is a wonderful card - whatever the chick is called. But now you have pointed it out - I can only guess that Peter Cottontail is a Rabbit.

It is gorgeous - so forget about the name

Oops! I have to admit that I've never heard of Peter Cottontail so I would never have guessed what was wrong with it. But you did a great rescue job!

By the way, my blog has moved here.

Happy new year Caroline!

Hi Caroline - I love the card and yes I saw the oopps right away, but it made me laugh and that is always good. We all need a little laugh in our days. Either way the card is really pretty, but then you always do such nice work.
