Always Check Before you Stick

It's Nat's turn to set the cahllene for the Daring Cardmakers this week, and she's chosen the theme
"New Beginnings"  

"... today happens to be the day that one chapter of my daytime career ends and another begins. So, inspired by "New Beginnings" and everything they entail I challenged my fellow teamies to create a card on this very theme.
and everything they entail I challenged my fellow teamies to create a card on this very theme.
Whether new beginnings in work, love, family, life in general or in celebration of a new adventure, or simply sharing inspirational and uplifting words of wisdom - the choice is yours!"

Before I share my card I just want to wish Nat every success in her new endeavour - it's a scary and exciting time setting up on your own, and I wish you all the luck in the world xxx

It's our wedding anniversary today, and all week long I've been trying to make a card for hubby -I don't know where my inspiration has gone to, but it's certainly not been here this week.  I finally finished it yesterday lunchtime, which meant my New Home card for the DCM was very last minute and of necessity,  simple to put together. 
Mind you I still made a hash of it by discovering that I'd stuck everything on, not with the fold at the top as planned, and not even on the left side, which would have been ok - but on the right edge - what a numpty!  
Luckily I was able to pull the yellow layer and everything on it off the card and stick it all on a new one.  
"More haste, less speed" in action, I suppose

Materials and Tools
Smooth White card blank plus extra for upper layer (PDA)
Yellow, Green, Turquoise and Peach card (Bazzill)
Ribbed Kraft card (PDA
Petite Dots 6x6 embossing folder (Crafters' Companion) 
Circle and tiny heart punches
Tiny red pearls
pc generated sentiment
Hand-cut pennants tree trunk and house

That's it for this time, thanks for looking
It would be great if you'd leave a message - feel free to share your own mistakes - it would make me so much feel better to know I'm not the only one who makes them!

Cute! I usually cut along the fold and stick the whole shebang to a new card blank when I make that kind of oops! I'm always nervous of damaging stuff if I try disassembly!

It's because you were distracted by the apparent difficulty of making a card for the person in your life you know the best...should be easy..never is!
I work on the cards flat, so don't often stick the stuff on the wrong way....but that doesn't preclude me from making every other mistake you've ever heard of! My current favourite seems to be just deciding to add something stamped to the finished item and wrecking it. Just. Can't. Stop. Myself!

A fabulously cheerful card Kathy, just right to welcome someone to a new home. I've stuck things the wrong way many a time. I just cut the whole front off and stick it to a new card blank xx
