Give In Gracefully? Nah!

There comes a time in the life of a woman of certain years when she really ought to know when to give in gracefully, to know when she is beaten and admit defeat, rather than carrying on blithely and making a complete arse of herself.  Unfortunately I haven't reached that stage yet.

This week, of all the darned weeks, Lili's Little Fairies are offering a four week GDT - but the theme of the challenge is Ribbons n Bows.  Aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!  Oh well, time to make myself look a complete fool yet again.


Ingredients for this card are
Stamped Image  Lili of The Valley Ride With Me
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  A mix of black n white from DCWV and Dovecraft
Red matting layers are white card edged with Poppy ProMarker
Ribbon  Fantastic Ribbons - dotty black organza
Extras  Flower punch, spacer and crystal brad from stash

I'm off to hide now until the shame wears off.

Ooh, meant to mention, yes, the Dear Customer Services letter was mailed yesterday.  Let's see if I get any kind of responses, lol!

Hugs, Sxx

What is with you today Miss Squirrel? Just what is wrong with this perfectly lovely card? I happen to really love this one - the colours are retro chic downright fabulous. And that bow has been nowhere near sausagey fingers!!!!! This is really great and I don't know why you haven't put GDT after your name! Honestly woman, this is great and I love the gem in the middle of the bow. I may borrow that idea! lol! I never give in gracefully - Fairies fight on!! Super big hugs you crazy lady; where would this challenge be without you? Jayne xxx

Hmm, now this is meant with affection - but you are such a whack job - you make me look nearly sane!!!! I will post on the Fairy Forum that you want to be considered for the GDT! Gosh, your jelly baby saga had me crying with laughter. You know I'm not getting paid for all this care in the community mularky - do you think I could get some sort of tax break if I mention it to Inland Revenue? Jayne x

And why, pray tell, would you even consider "give in gracefully"??? This is a fantastic card! You've certainly not made yourself look a complete fool! I'd have you on the DT in a minute.
