Today, our wonderfully witty, hilarious and talented Darnell is hostessing the first 24-hour's only April Fool's Day Boo Boo Hop, where our oopsie-boopsie cards are the stars of the stage. Brilliant, right? And talk about fun!!
A lot of boo-boos already, right...but added to the tally is that it opened backwards and upside down. Yep...and I didn't realize my error until I brought it - all rather proud of myself, I dare add - to my mom's, to show her how snazzy-dazzy my card-making was becoming. Embarrassing!! My sister-in-law - mom to the highlights-of-my-life niece and nephew - happened to be visiting at the time, so the three of us had a great old guffaw at my 'design innovation.' I fully intended to trash the creature before I left, but...I forgot...
Imagine my surprise when, about 2 months later, this VERY card landed in my mailbox. My sweet sister-in-law had rescued the poor thing, turned it upside down (or would that be 'right side up? Whatever the case, she figured it out.) and wrote a note that melted my heart and brought tears of immense joy to my eyes.
Little did I know that my 'backwards and upside down and loopy-doopy card' would become this special treasure...
that, since it's arrival, has been pinned on my bulletin board in the kitchen, just to the right of my laptop, where I can see it Every. Single. Day. (BTW: the 'bathing the boy' she makes reference to is this big old cloth doll my mom made. When my niece was younger, we gave that doll 'pretend' baths over and over and over...)
Here's how the card looks when you read the note inside...a bit of 'mental gymnastics' required!!
Love this 'booby' card...and especially LOVE my sister-in-law for seeing some 'magic' in it!
Okay, 'nuff from me...I'm off to hop to see what other beautiful blunders await at Darnell's place! Hope you're enticed to bring one of your oopsies to the gallery!
Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me immense joy!
