Oh Crap!


I'm so sorry but I just couldn't resist making this card.  This was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the Ink Splash stamp from Neat & Tangled.  (My apologies, Danielle!)  My first attempt only used white ink for the… um… "accident" but it didn't look quite right so I did some experimenting with adding some brown and grey and thought this looked a bit more realistic!  :D  What did we do before we had Google to show us what everything looks like?  (Although given the joy the seagulls seem to be taking in decorating our dock I wouldn't have had to look far for true inspiration.  But I digress…) I am gleefully entering this in the One-Layer challenge at Little Tangles and also the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge:  Restocking the Shelves.  I always need birthday cards but what I need even more than that are belated birthday cards and this fits the bill perfectly with the right sentiment on the inside.  ;)

ETA:  Tracey pointed out the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is Let's Have a Laugh which would fit perfectly with my card so I'm going to enter it over there.  Thanks, Tracey!

Stamps:  (Ink Splash) Neat & Tangled, (Sentiment from Alpha Tabs) Sweet Stamp Shop
