Thursday Afternoon Delight

My son is off with one of his best buds - went go karting and mini golfing....
My husband is watching a music video from the DVR (reliving his youth, I think)....

So, that left me to make a card. 

This card comes with a story....I wanted to play with the Ho's on their Challenge and also over at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge.  Two sets of great stampers ~ I hope one day to be in their league!  Oh, back to the story.  I colored the image but didn't really like a part of it, so take two; colored again... I liked (but son thought the jeans should be darker "Well, Mom, I only wear dark blue.") Got the image finished and mounted and found a sentiment; and mounted that too.  Found a piece of paper in my box-o-paper and made a flower.  Was excited that the card came together! 
{Here comes the sad part of the story.} 
Took the card outside - since we all know that natural light is best for taking pictures - where the card proceeded to fall behind my grill.  No problem yet.  I'll just reach down and get it.  Hmmm...a bit too far to stretch, so I decide to move the grill out and have less of a stretch. 
TOO BAD I DIDN'T SEE THE POND WITHIN THE FOLDS OF THE GRILL COVER!
Yep, pretty card took a bath ~ before I got a decent picture of it.

But, decided to write about it and laugh at myself.... and show you anyhow.

So, here is my card, wrinkles and all!


Thanks for stopping by this afternoon~
Huggz,
April

Love your coloring and your dp is perfect for the image.

April, I want to be sympathetic........ but all I can seem to do is giggle! Your telling of the tragedy is just so funny!

The waviness of the card just adds dimension April. After all he is supposed to be in the jungle and there are no straight lines there. I love your story and I'm glad it's not only me that has accidents like this. I think it makes your card all the more interesting. Thank you for sharing your card with us at CSSC and we hope to see you again next week. :-) xx

I'm sorry, but forgive me for laughing, I thought things like that only happen to me. The card is still darn cute.
