WOYWW - still missing in action :(

I just spent a whole day yesterday working on stuff for our school association and at about 5pm realised that all the work was for nothing :( The logo I'd been using is to be replaced by a special 20th Anniversary one for this next reunion in 2013 - and it isn't a case of dropping a new one into place, I just know that - plus I'd made up all the samples ready for an association committee meeting this weekend too. There's still steam rising from Hampshire right now!

So that scuppered Wednesday for me as I'll just have to start again - no chance of hopping about on WOYWW and it ain't fair to link so I'll be missing in action once again.

But, after hurling stuff round the craft room in a right little tantrum, I whipped this little card up instead:
I used:

- card cut to DL size, strip of silver edged card and layered up (already done!) image, all by Kan Ban from their 'Special Moments' collection  - this one is called 'Sunday Best'

- the label is also from the kit, I stamped a little sentiment using Memento 'London Fog' - the sentiment stamp is by SU from the 'Pocket Silhouettes' set - good old SU to the rescue again

- little snippet of white organza ribbon and three card candies - coloured with a Pro Marker as all the pinks I had weren't 'blue toned' enough. To be honest, a big bag of white card candi is a great route as you can always colour those to suit

You can see what a rush I was in, it was getting dark outside so I plonked the card down and pressed the shutter on the camera! Nowt fancy, after the day I'd had!!!



  1. Aw, your 'hurry up' always looks so great. This is a gorgeous card,love all the layering and I hope your upset is better now that the day is over. This organization is so lucky to have you! Hugs.

  2. Love your card! Great looking desk too. Sorry to hear you wasted all that time. I hate it when that happens to me and I have to start all over again! Have a great day. Vickie (no number yet)

  3. I know the feeling. Just done a post, got to the end of it and linked all the challenges up and hey presto computer made a horible cherchink kerchunk and even though I had saved it the whole lot disappeared. Just spent the entire evening rewriting it! It's freezing up here in the pod too. Off for a coffee and cheese scone. Hugs Mrs A.
    p.s. Not going to bed in case those nasty goblins from the potting shed get me!!!! I been having night mares ever since you told me about em.

  4. I don't know how you managed to make such a sweet and adorable card when you were seething inside, Di! I'm sorry that happened to you after all the work you did.

  5. I thought I heard some strange noises in the air last night,now I know what they were. See your steam reached all the way to Yorkshire, Di. How frustrating. Do you want a hand with them? I'll be round, put the kettle on!!!!
    Love your card. I just bought a set of stamps with this image on in a sale, it's so cute!!!!
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Lisax

  6. Shall I pop round and give you a hand today Di....really wish I could.
    Love your card even though you say you rushed.
    Hope your day goes well.

  7. Grrrrrrrrr. What a waste of a day. No wonder you were seething and there was steam coming out your ears. How VERY frustrating to say the least.

    I wholeheartedly sympathise with your plight.

    Here's hoping you have a BETTER day today.

    On the upside . . . you made a REALLY LOVELY card! And it was pink . . .instead of BLACK and RED or BLACK and BLUE . . . the way you were feeling.

    BIG BIG HUGS xxxxx

  8. I often have days like that!!

    Your card is gorgeous and very girly :) xx

  9. Gorgeous card Di, such a sweet image. Love it.

  10. Oh dear Di, what a day! I'm not a bit surprised there's steam issuing distantly from Hampshire ... I'd me a tad mad too. However, the resultant card is lovely - I'm a recent convert to Kanban, having discovered I can buy single packs of their toppers from my favourite craft centre. Those toppers are so useful for quick card makes. Good tip about the card candy ... I've tons of colours but often not the one I'm looking for :) Hope you get the school association stuff done and dusted today so you can back to crafting asap. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

  11. Awww poor you, I hate wasting my time too:{ You could have made so many cards:0) Still the one you made is super anyway, I love the soft LOTV image, gooorgeous!!! Gay x

  12. very annoying when you could be creating for yourself. lovely card

  13. Gorgeous card Di but what a frustrating day for you. I think you deserve a treat - are you a chocs or glass of wine girl. Either suit me - I'll have a glass with you then!! x Jo

  14. Sounds like a very frustrating day Di, hope today has been better for you :)

    Lovely card and true testament that you are totally capable of still making a gorgeous card even in a rush and fit of rage!

    Sending you calming hugs xx

  15. Now I understand why I heard teddies crying last night....they had been thrown out of their prams!
    Sorry you had a "pants" day. If it makes you feel any better I fell off my broomstick this morning and have now missed my date to the Tip with S!!
    Gorgeous card which you have thrown together! Wish I could throw non fancy cards like that after a bad day!
    Now go an say Sorry to your Teddy!

  16. Aw Di, sorry to her about your day.
    A quick but beautiful card with gorgeous pastel colours.

  17. Hi there Di - I can feel the airwaves fizzing from your place! I hope you are feeling a bit better now. I am amazed at the 'quick' card you made, I couldn't do a quick one like this as long as I have a hole in me ...... doughnut! Love the creation!!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  18. Happy WOYWW - even if you didn't have time to link due to your huge frustrating situation (angry on your behalf!). Lovely card. Ali x #72

  19. Love all the layers on this, looks fabulous, love the pink papers too.
    Oh my what a shame, bet you were close to tears, pity I don't live closer I would definately come and give you a hand with the new ones.
    Good luck.

  20. Whoa! Look at all those layers! Some people cook when they are mad and some people clean and you, you apparently layer things in tidy little stacks. Looking good! Sorry to hear that all that work was for naught.
