At long last, I am finished with my 22 tags for the Peppermint Tag Swap at Elizabeth's Bluebird Papercrafts.
At the Crop for Africa Missions, we had several ladies who had their Cricut machines out and humming...I asked one if she had a cupcake on any of her cartridges...
On a cartridge entitled Celebrations, she found a cupcake that would work...I asked her to cut ONE, from chipboard for me to use as a template...
And (so as not to dull her blade) I cut the rest by hand. 22 cupcakes from chipboard...my "scissor hand" was screaming!
I envisioned a Christmas cupcake...and what I would love to see under a glass dome on my table...
And then I thought "I'd better check back at Elizabeth's and see when I need to send these...THAT is when I saw it...(insert "dum dum dum" ominous piano tune here)
"Our tags will again be 6" x 3", a whole punched in the top, ribbon can be added." WHAT?!?! 6x3? Well NO WONDER everyone ELSE who sent tags all sent similar shapes and sizes! Behold the lovelies:
Truly, dear friends, I did NOT intend to be a "rebel" ... a "rebel without a clue". :-( Elizabeth insists that I should still send the tags, although they are and will be "not like the others."
The cupcakes are being boxed up and lovingly sent PRONTO...not only did I make the WRONG kind but I am also late in making them! ARGH!
To all the dear ladies involved in the tag swap, please FORGIVE this clueless wonder her transgressions...and know that I will TRY to color INSIDE the lines in the next swap!
