Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

When things go wrong....

So here's a Christmas card I taught at my last Tuesday afternoon craft class. A liitle die-cut decoupage church mounted on a tri-fold card with tearing technique for snow drifts, topped with dazzling diamonds SU glitter. So easy, but quite effective!
Then a simple A6 card with a stamped floral image from Simply Said SU set (£22.95 for 11 stamps) and greeting, Get Well Soon from the Sincere Salutations SU set ( £18.95 for 8 stamps), a little 5/8" grosgrain tied around scallop edged topper.
And that's when things started to go wrong.....
As I was not working this weekend, Saturday was to be a leisurely crafting day to get my 10 cards made for a 'card swap' due by the end of next week. Firstly, I couldn't find my new pack of Whisper White card. But not a problem, I thought, as I found the pack of ready scored 3" x 3" cards that I needed for the task. Now for the design - so I picked a stamp set which I hadn't used , along with my Stampin' Write markers and stamped the tall flower in Cameo Coral and Old Olive. Looked fine! Using the blender pen to colour the images, all 10 of them, still fine! Needed a little wording, so used the word 'bloom' with the stamp-a-ma-jig for accurate placing and all was looking good! A touch of dazzling diamonds glitter in the centre of each flower, and job done! Good!
Must take a photograph of these little cuties, I thought!!
So, armed with some black card for them to stand on , and some for the background, I got the camera ready but decided that there needed to be something at the sides to get the best picture. And then........disaster*/^'#*#. The sides collapsed, flattening the cards and bending some beyond repair.
Well, here they are. The picture is so bad that you can't tell ,but they won't be any use for the swap. So tomorrow's first task of the day will be to look for that Whisper white card until I find it!
Wish me luck, coz I hate wasting time 'looking', when I could be crafting. !
So if you are listening (pack of card), please make your way to the dining room table during the night, so that I don't have to look for you in the morning....please?
