In the Garden

Hi everyone, hope you are all well. Where has the past week gone?
Have you ever had one of THOSE weeks. To start with I was using my Wizard to cut out a nestie. I was holding the plates and racheting the handle and found it very stiff, when I looked I had caught my sleeve in the rollers!! Stuck I was. Call for hubby and he had to pull my sleeve out, and of course it ripped. The machine is now called 'The Beast'
Next incident, I went to drive the car and needed to alter my interior mirror as my Son had used it Saturday, and there I was with the mirror in my hands - oops. Then yesterday I went to Plymouth to get a new blade for my cutter and while there noticed she had some Viva Pearl Pens. Didn't have white but I bought the Lilac. Tried it out in the afternoon and the pearl was so small I thought I would put a bit more pressure on the tube, Big Mistake. The top flew off and I had Pearl liquid everywhere. I am now hoping that this is my 3 things and no more incidents will occur. If someone else wants to take my gremlins I would be more than happy.
Right, now to my card. Stampavie image Jean Luc, Lovely My Minds Eye papers, Nestie shape. Stars and heart are cut with a very old sizzix die. Image coloured with copics. Left a space for a sentiment for when I know who it is for.
Entering this in the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly -- Anything Goes
My Time To Craft -- Infants either for children or children on
Creative Inspirations -- In the Garden
If you have read this far well done. Thanks for popping by and leave me a comment if you wish. I very much appreciate it.

Oh My Goodness - what a week! :)

I have never caught my sleeve in my bug, but I can image it looking ridiculous and awful and very funny at the same time. ;) I would have been no good to help and dont know what I would have done. Its a good thing hubby was there to help.

Love the feel of this card, its really folksy and fresh. Cute image and those stars look great just scattered.
