If only Men could spell !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Evening Everyone.
What is it with Grandads and spelling their Grandchildrens names?
An old friend asked me to make a card for his Granddaughter - pink and girly, with her name on it. Should be a doddle.
I asked him to spell it for me as it is not a particularly common name.
When I took it round yesterday, he said how lovely it was, but that there was a Y in it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I suppose that with 12 children and numerous grandchildren (First Great Grandchild is on its way) it is hardly surprising that he got it wrong but it did give me a few hairy moments as I tried to change it without too much damage to the card.
Why did I get into silicone? It would have been easy with sticky fixers, they always fall off when you don't want them to, but silicone is so much more permanent !!
I think I managed to alter it without too much trouble, although I did have to add an extra panel of background paper to hide where the letters had originally been.
I seem definitely to be going through a cute phase at the moment.
I suppose it has a lot to do with the fact that several of the cards just lately have been ones that I have been asked to make after people have seen the other cute cards that I have done. What ever the reason I have to say that I have been having great fun.
It has been so nice to be able to use what ever I like for a change without having to worry whether or not it can be bought from where I am teaching.
There have been lots of flowers lately as well, and that set of letter has been absolutely invaluable, I just wish I could remember who made it.
I have used a mixture of flowers which I have made, and ones that I have bought, and some more of the stamen. Of course the only trouble with all the flowers is the need for a hand made box to put the card in.
You would be so impressed Gilly I know just how much you love making boxes and envelopes lol.
I have been having a great time today making more cute cards for various people, but I will share them with you as the occasions arise, it will be nice to have some cards to fall back on for the blog.
I think I might call it a night now and get some sleep. Then again.........................
I hope you have all had a great day.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving all the lovely comments, they are so very much appreciated.
Nite nite.

  2. I know what you mean about it being a man thing. My Mum always told me that my sister is Tracy without an E because my Dad went and registered the birth - bless him!!
    Glad you liked the card.
