What Is She Thinking???????

by Myrna

I made an Anniversary card for Randy and like usual it’s not what you think it is! Your first thought will be, ok, what is she thinking???? I do explain inside the card. I’m not the writer in the family but it explains my reasoning behind the card. I have to admit I went into this card with it all planned in my head. Some of it worked and some did not! I have never tried so many new things (they did work) just not for this card. Things I will try again. This time the garbage men get them. 🙂

One of the new things I did that did work was to cut white flowers and then spray them with Glimmer Mist and make a tight ball with them and then open them up. I really like that look! Note to self, next time wear rubber gloves! I now have orange fingers!! Anywho, here’s my card.

Ok, here comes the “what is she thinking??? The next picture will explain it.
