Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: You Can Do It!!!!
So the door on one of the kitchen cupboards has been hanging precariously for months. Yes, months! I kept hoping that a magic fairy (or Michael) would fix it in the middle of the night and I would wake up one morning and it would be fixed! Well, today the magic fairy came...she just happened to be me :) I guess Michael had taken a look at it awhile ago and was stumped by the hinge and how it worked, so he was waiting for some inspiration. Rather than wait any longer, I got out the screwdrivers - 3 of them, mind you - and went to work. I am very happy to report that I did have to go into the craft room for a bit of clay so that I could hold the screw onto the end of the screwdriver while trying to screw it into place! :) Michael even tested out my handiwork and was quite impressed with the result! Yeah!!!!! It's amazing how happy a properly working cupboard door can make you :) So the next time you are waiting around for the magic fairy, thinking you can't do something on your own, think again! YOU can do it!!!! :)
This card came together quickly - although I must admit, it came together backwards :) I was originally thinking about using 2 different patters of paper and then decided I liked it best with this pattern...and realized that I cut my paper diagonally the wrong way - at least according to the sketch challenge - oops! So, I hope you will forgive me - you can imagine the diagonal line going the other way...after all, I was able to fix the kitchen cupboard today and that's gotta give me some points to use against other goofs :) Hope you like it!

Hee Hee! Good for you! You go girl. It amazes me sometimes what we can do once we set our minds to it. I love the black and white card and the dp you used. I too used the same paper on both sides of my card and the first one I cut I had going in the opposite direction. Don`t think that matters at all! Love the definition sentiment and the lovely ribbon and buckle. TFS!
