All is calm.............

All is not calm in this house!  I wanted to make an inky background for this card but found my favourite blue spray was empty, couldn't remember what I had used to make it so rummaging about in a cupboard I found seven pots of something called Viva Metallic paint, all new, unopened, no idea what they were for, opened one, beautiful irridescent blue paint,tried to read what was on the label while I already had the top off and dropped it onto the carpet !!!!! whatever it is it doesn't come off,scrubbed and rubbed and used half a bottle of concentrated carpet cleaner,still a very obvious blue patch.  Its not even in a place where I can put something over it LOL, Anyhow back to my card, this is my DT card for Cardz4guyz challenge for which Amy has chosen Something beginning with T. A not very original choice of Trees for me. More of the Tim Holtz die cut trees and a reindeer from Tim Holtz Holiday Joy set.The wording is a freebie from Creative Stamping Magazine a couple of years ago. Hope to see you playing along with a card for a guy in your life.

  2. Poor you! All that trauma for a card. But it IS a really nice card!
    (Try Nail Polish remover on a sponge - find it works for paint.....)

  3. Beautiful card Joan, love the reindeer, pity about the ink on the carpet, hope it comes off with the nail varnish remover..
