I hope this finds you all enjoying a Sunday Funday!
How was April Fool's Day for you? Did you pull any spanks? Did you have any pulled on you?
I was hilariously enjoying my Big Fat Card Boo Boo Hop Friday when I suddenly got the "Blue Screen of Death" on the PC. I had to wait several hours for the Mister to get home from work and slip into his IT uniform. We were hoping against hope that it was just an April Fool's joke, but alack and aack, it was not. For a hefty fee, Microsoft happily spent the next several hours evicting rat bastards from where they were infesting the bowels of our computer.
And, hey, Hal A. Lula, I am back in bizness with a new Fire Wall around me so the eviltarians better not even think about climbing in here again. That's right, I said FIRE wall! Don't you just love how scary that sounds? Sadly, we thought we already had a good one, so I guess it doesn't sound that scary to everybody. OTOH, after decades with a home PC, it's our first time being ghacked, so that's not too bad.
Okay, well, that's not why you called! Let's talk about the Hop!
Me and Hammy et al. resoundedly declare it a success! Thinking there might only be 3 partypants, I am very pleased that there were 36! That's tremendous considering you only had two weeks' notice and you weren't for sure what I was looking for! I know there were several more of you who planned to play, so I think I will do it again next year and keep the logo on my side bar to remind you. I hope when you make an April Foolish boo boo throughout the year, you will think of me (wait ~ what?!) and stop to take a picture so you can join in next year!
It was a very tough call! Well done, Lorraine, and thank you for joining in the fun!
As a matter of fact, it was so hard choosing just one that I'm awarding a surprise second gift card of $25! This entry was a story, rather than a card (which was acceptable), so well done and thank you to:
Ladies, I'll be in touch!
I have had many emails both from folks who played in the Hop and from those who didn't saying how much they enjoyed this little hooteninny! We laughed until tears ran down our legs! We comscissorated with each other and felt a crafty connection as we discovered that we are not alone when it comes to making bloopers and blunders! I want to thank ALL of you who played for taking the time to do so, for being supportive, and for being incredibly good sports about your boobs, sorry, boo boos!!
If you didn't get a chance to hop around the gallery yet, I highly recommend it! You might even want to bookmark the post and refer to it any time you "can't get it right" or you're just feeling blue!
Speaking of boo boos, I made this card especially for today:
I said "speaking of boo boos" because I made this card using a boo boo that I rescued from my fellow BABE Geri when we were at our stamping adventure in October 2014. Bless her, Geri became so flusterated with this sweet little vase and bouquet that she threw it in the recycle trash and started over. Well, no fool me, I
I don't think she believed me.
Well, it took awhile, but this is my year of cleansing the BOB box and when I saw Geri's discard in the box a few days ago, I thought it would make a perfect ending for the Big Fat Card Boo Boo Hop! I still can't find anything wrong with her fun vase and flowers, so I simply added it to a linen panel, matted it with pp from PTI and attached it to the base. The sediment is from "Year Round Puns" by PTI. Thank you Geri for making this beautiful focus pocus for me to use on this QACAS birthday card all these months later!
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!
Hey, quick question: anybody have their followers gadget disappear in the last few days? I don't mean just a few followers, but the whole gadget? Blogger did this once before a long while back, but the gadget came back in a coupla days. I'm not sure if that is what's happening again or if it has to do with my computer purge ... thank you for any intel you have about this!
