Bear Hugs and a funny story

Hello!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I had some time late yesterday afternoon to make a card using my new MFT goodies.  I colored this darling Pure Innocence, Bear Hugs cutie.  When I went to Archivers Friday night, they had the new Theresa Collins papers, so I picked up a couple of them.  Love the colors in this pack!


I have taken a photo from the side so you can see how I popped her up off the oval using some pop dots.  So, on to the funny story...I was making this new Hybrid Heirloom Rose and I was putting it together using my hot glue gun, I rolled the center and was holding it in place while it dried when I noticed that my hair was hanging in the glue!  So the end of my hair had dried hot glue!  I was so busy trying to get the glue out of my hair that the center of the flower didn't look as good as I wanted so I ripped it off and tried again.  Then, I burned my finger!  Yes, I know, I wasn't having luck with that rolled flower at all.  I set down the hot glue gun and didn't notice that my good paintbrush was sitting under the glue gun and it dripped glue all over it.  It was stuck to my craft mat!  Ugh!  I got most of the glue off and it did come out of my hair.  Needless to say, I chucked that rolled center and went with a center from another flower die set using my Zip Dry glue instead of my hot glue gun.  SOLD!


I always add a close up photo of my image.  It is smaller in size because if I make it as big as the other photos, it looks awkward.  You can always click on it to make it bigger and see more detail.


I used the MFTWSC sketch and turned it vertically which worked better for my little girl.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Hee hee So are you saying your craft room is dangerous and I should come prepared? Ha! This is adorable and I do like the flower the way it turned out. Very sweet card.

What a story, Heather! Sometimes things can go wrong when you are so busy creating. I know the problem, with me it usually involves things falling on the floor, since my desk isn't that big... Good thing most things were repaired again and we don't see anything of that in your card! That's a beauty!!! And the flower is gorgeous!!
Hugs, Wendy

What a beautiful card this is ... I love your colour choices and the flower is stunning!! So sorry about the hot glue though ... it's great when it works but yep ... it can be a problem ...

Love the card. Especially love your choice of colors. Sorry to hear about you tangling with the hot glue. That stuff can be dangerous, at least you survived. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Just darling, Heather! Had to laugh about your hot glue story (not laughing at you but at the fact that I've had something similar happen to me). Your flower is just stunning (glad it worked out after all)!

Leslie Miller said...

Gosh, I sure hate to laugh at your expense, but that's a real comedy of errors! Sure turned out great in the end, though. Your flower is so amazingly beautiful, especially in that gorgeous color. Love how you used the kraft color for the leaves, too. Cute all over!
