a Gothic Wedding


Hva i all verden gjør man når man finner dette på scrappebordet? Jeg hadde malt opp dette digitale stemplet, og det lå i noen dager på bordet før jeg skulle lage dette kortet... Gjett om jeg føyk i taket da jeg så hva som hadde skjedd! Og ropte høyt navnet på den skyldige - ARIEL! ... Og lillesnuppas svar var; Æ skulle bare gjøre det enda finere for dæ tante!

Hmmm... Hvordan reagerer man på et slikt svar? Jeg kunne ikke si at hennes kråketær - som hun er VELDIG stolt av (begynner i 2 klassen til høsten) er noe jeg absolutt ikke ser på som en forbedring av det jeg lager... Hehe, men hun lovte iallefall å aldri tegne på mine ting mer ;)
Hun pleier å sitte på andre siden av bordet å male sammen med meg når hun er på besøk, stempler alltid opp litt ekstra på helt vanlig papir så jeg ikke sløser med akvarellarkene - og kjøleskapet er fullt av hennes kunstverk ♥


Men tilbake til kortet - som dere ser så fikk jeg reparert/dekt over krusedullene, men jeg ble bare sånn passe fornøyd alikevel - ettersom jeg hadde hatt planer om en annen layout.. Men niesen min blir iallefall til å huske at hennes fine bokstaver ikke passer på tante sine kort :)

Dette kortet er med i tre utfordringer - Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes, Digital Tuesdays #118. 'Bling it up, og Top Tip Tuesday #41. Bryllup.



My niece was the responsible artist of the doodle text u see on the top pic, then when I very angrily asked what the meaning of it was, she innocently replied - I just wanted to make it look even nicer for you, auntie! What can one say to that?? But she will not (probably) do it again *lol* She likes to sit and paint with me, so I stamp extra motifs on plain paper for her (not to waste my watercolor-sheets) and my fridge is full of her art :)
I was going to throw it away, but decided to see what i could do with it first. And luckily I was able to repair & cover up the doodles on the motif, but I'm not entirely happy with it as the layout wasn't was I had planned. However, a lesson learned for both aunt & niece! ;)

I enter my card in Papertake Weekly 'Anything Goes' challenge, Digital Tuesdays #118. 'Bling it up', & Top Tip Tuesdays #41. Weddings or Anniversarys. And my top tip is to just to try and repair the motif before chucking it in the bin - if an accident (or a deliberate crime!) happens to your creations ;)
