I avoided the back door today by covering my smudge with a flower. No EPEC (extra points for extra cookies) as I could not locate Dexter for a photo op!

What a great idea to make a tray from recycled material. Had to laugh at your lesson learned. Oh how many times have I learned the hard way when it comes to stamping! Hope you aren't returning to Colorado this week as it is snowing after record breaking temps last week. Go figure.

LOL, I've had that moment with embossing too. Not quite the same - I've gone to the lengths of embossing the edges of a Nestabilities die, only to realise that they'd get totally smooshed when I then embossed them in a folder.
Gorgeous black paper - so elegant!
