More haste.........

.......less speed. Well I proved that saying this morning while I quickly tried to put together the pieces for my BIL's birthday card before we went out.
I prepared the backing paper and topper yesterday and left the ink round the edges to dry. All I had to do today was stick them in place. I managed that all right then opened the card to write inside and found......


Yep that's right stuck on the wrong way, couldn't even use it as a tent style card as it would have been completley upside down then.
I cut the front off the card and put it along with another smaller topper and peel-off greeting onto an A5 card. thank goodness the sheet of toppers had lots of sizes on it. It's a cute little cat holding a cake and balloons from Lili of the Valley and the backer is from Dovecrafts.

Lousy pictures but I did say I was in a rush to get it done. ;-)

Oh what a rotten thing to happen (and it's happened to me a few times) - glad you were able to rescue it and make a lovely card in the end x

ahhh it happens to the best of us Sue - more often than we'd probably care to admit! I know that I've had to chop the front of loads of cards down and stick 'em on a new card - the last stupid one was adding the greeting upside down - wasn't even till I was getting the photo ready to blog that I noticed haha
