Today is the day we show our boo boos! Everybody's friend, Darnell , of djkardkreations blog is hosting a party! See all the fun right HERE in the Playhouse.
Each year at Christmas time I create several different Christmas card designs to send to my friends and family. I will usually make about 4 to 6 of each design. In 2014 I made several cards like this one. I am crazy about the zipper die by Papertrey Ink and the coordinating stamp set. I love creating a secret message that you get to see only when you open the zipper. The message under the secret strip is:
"a Merry Christmas"
My late sister, Sherry's birthday is December 21st so I decided to change up one of the cards to make it a birthday card for her. The secret message on her identical birthday card read:
"a birthday as special as you are!"
I bet you are guessing what my boo boo was aren't you? LOL Soon after the cards were sent I got all sorts of calls or e-mails thanking me for my sweet hand crafted cards. The ones who received the secret message card were the most enthusiastic of all! - I beamed!
When I spoke with Sherry on Christmas day she commented on my cards and asked me why I sent two Christmas cards to her. During that conversation we laughed until we cried when I realized that someone on my Christmas card list got a card wishing them a happy birthday!. The sweetest thing of all? whoever received the wrong message never said a word about the mistake - they just thanked me. I never did find out who received the boo boo!! My sister teased me about it until the day she died.
I just can't wait to see what everyone else reveals about their funniest oopsie! It is sure to be a fun party. I hope you will hop over to Darnell's blog to join the hilarity!
Thank you for stopping by : ) have a great day!
