Happy Mistake!!

Well I did it again!! I was using my Gypsy to design some cards tonight, I just got my Gypsy about 4-5 months ago so I am still learning how to find all the images & look through all my carts on there! And then when I do find the image I want, I sometimes forget all the layers...or like tonight, can't tell which is the image & which is the shadow!! I am learning but not as fast as I want to! So tonight I wanted to design some birthday cards for the DT Birthday Club. I used the cupcake image from Simply Charmed, made sure I had ALL the layers! I used the "hide" feature to hide the face so I could use my Peachy Keen stamps! Then I wanted the background to be cut out of Elegant Edges. I used the same background on this card but I didn't use my Gypsy on the previous card. I wanted to use my Gypsy & NOT my handbook so I picked out my image (after going through almost all of them trying to find the right one! If anyone knows an easier way to do this...PLEASE let me know!)

So I put my image on my mat & also added the shadow. When I cut them on my Cricut, I accidentally put the paper in the wrong places! So I cut my shadow with my image color & vise-versa...It was getting late so I didn't want to do it over & thought "Why not TRY to use what I cut??!" So I did!! And I LOVE how it turned out!! LOL!!
So this was SUPPOSED to be cut in pink with a brown mat, but instead I cut the main image in brown & the mat in pink! I already had my card base picked out & all my other pieces too! Now if I wouldn't have told you all this, you probably wouldn't have even known it was a mistake...AGAIN!! :) But I just love it when this happens! Now believe me, it doesn't happen ALOT...but when it does...YAY!!! LOL!! The "squiggly" background paper is from The Paper Studio-Birthday Extravaganza stack! It works so well with the image from Elegant Edges!!

I also have to show the COOLEST thing my Mom bought for my desk!
OMG!! I just LOVE this thing!! I have to smile every time I look at her!! It has a large magnet on the top of her head so all the paper clips just stand up & flip over all over the place!! :) So stinkin cute!!! Thanks Mom!!

Tomorrow I will have some really cute candy jars I finished up tonight & matching place cards! Place cards? Candy jars? It must be a party!! Stay tuned ...

Until next time...
