It's Monday


Some more altered playing cards from the weekend - they are much nicer in real life. However , I am sure you can see how much I am loving gel transfers at the moment.
It was such a long day at work today with lots of niggling problems - and I am sitting here feeling quite pleased. Oh no, not with the problems but with the way I did not let them get to me.
My day started to wobble about 7.00 am. I went to set my breakfast plate on the table and poked a finger into a vase of flowers at the same time. No I was not washing the butter off my finger - rather, checking the water level. What do you know, I knocked the vase and it began to wobble, I dove to catch it. Not only did I fail and send water all over the table, but a dangling extremity (covered only in a thin nightie) with all of the table to hang over - landed in my fresh hot cup of tea.
Are you giggling? It is OK, I was not badly burnt - just a little pink. And, breakfast took a little longer than usual.
This wobble and splash set the tone for my day. Here's hoping for a smooth Tuesday!

I'm laughing at the dangling extremity!! That is too funny...I'm glad you weren't hurt and I'm sure today is a much better day.

The ATCs are so pretty. I've never done a gel transfer. Is it difficult? I love the textured, worn look they have. It adds so much to the cards.

alright, I did have to snicker a wee bit by "dangling extremity"...just glad all is ok.

I have not tried gel transfers yet - did you do them using the gel medium then soaking them in water? do tell. OH man I am WAY behind on trying and doing....but I am working on the swap piece for you!
XOXO

Oh Julie, I must admit to having a chuckle at your ' boob' accident! So glad it survived ok :)

These ATC's are lovely as always. I must admit I haven't had much luck with gel transfers. Maybe I need to get lessons from you!!!
