Have had a "numpty" moment . . .

Last week I could not photograph any of my projects because the camera was acting all weird. After much fiddling around with it, nothing still worked and I was becoming increasingly anxious that I would have to resign myself to getting it fixed or even replace it.

So being a good girl, I took it to the shop to see if they could help me/fix the camera. The nice man "said of course we can and it will cost . . . .  " (no surprise there then!!!). The nice man called me later that day to say you can collect your camera now and being so excited, I rushed over to the shop without enquiring about how they had fixed it. I waited patiently in a queue to be served to collect my camera and the nice man recognised me straight away and dashed off to get my camera. Handing it back I tentatively asked "how much?". He smiled and said "nothing as there wasn't anything wrong" !!!

It would appear that my camera had stopped taking photos because its internal memory was full and I had forgotten to put the memory card back in it after I had downloaded previous photos . . . this meant it just needed me to put the memory card back in and I could be "snap happy" again. Rather embarrassed at my complete and utter "numptiness", I retreated quickly from the shop. I just can't believe I had not checked if it has the memory card in . . .

Anyhow, I can now share with you this weeks card for ICSketches . . .

Papers: First Edition (Birdsong)
Edgeability scalloped dies
Marianne Creatablesoval and oval scallop dies
Stickers: Pebbles Inc
Felt flower cut with a Quickutz Die
Felt butterfly cut using a Marianne Creatables die
Baby pink bias ribbon
 Sentiment printed onto Safmat

I have made a baby card as my youngest sister is expecting her 3rd baby in mid-February and I thought I should start making her and her husband a card. They do not know what they are having so I will have made a little girl card first and will cover all bases by making a boys card later in the week.

I have had these Pebbles Inc stickers for eons, so dusted them off to make my card and not being a sticker person, am really pleased with how my card turned out.

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenge - new beginnings
Craft Your Days Away - new beginnings
CR8FN Colour Challenge - light pink, yellow & neutral
The Crazy Challenge - tic, tac, toe - my row: ribbon, embossing, diecuts

Have a great week everyone and I have to get prepping on my art project for school, so better get of here and make a start!
