Bugaboo - Blog Hop


Welcome to the Bugaboo Blog Hop - Christmas in July!  The design team from Totally Stampalicious was graciously asked to participate.  I really like working with Bugaboo images so I jumped at the chance.  My image is Teddy Present available at Bugaboo.  One commentor on my blog will win this digi so make sure to comment!  


I decided this was a great image for paper piecing.  The paper is Holiday Style from October Afternoon. 
I don't recall where I got the sentiment.

Copics:  100, BG11, C00, E30. E31, E33, E34, E35, R20, R24, R27, R29

I  have been having quite the bad luck this week.  I had a quart glass of iced tea on the table while I was working on this.  You can probably guess what happened.  I would love to say the cats knocked it over, but no, it was me.  The card topper got soaked.  I'm really surprised there are no visible any tea stains.  I lucked out.

I had even worse luck on Tuesday.  I frequently make green smoothies to drink.  I had one in the fridge that was a couple of days old.  I took it out while I was emptying out old yucky food.  I put the pop-top drink bottle on the counter with the intention of emptying it down the drain.  Well, I started working on a card and forgot that I had taken the bottle out.  All of a sudden I heard a very loud pop.  It scared the heck out of my cats.  I went in the kitchen to find green covering the ceiling, cabinets and floor.  I have to admit, it was quite funny.  I spent the next few hours cleaning it up.  
Hopefully, the next few days won't be so eventful.

Paper piecing can sure make a card pop. I love this, Diane. So, so cute.
I'm glad you have a sense of humor about your mishaps. Younger years would have really be upsetting for me, but I've learned to laugh at myself more. There's plenty to laugh at too. All I need to do is go shopping and try on clothes.
