April Fool's Day Boo Boo Hop

Hey, everyone! I came across a great opportunity this morning to enter into the first ever April Fool's Day Boo Boo Hop - a unique one-day-only challenge invented by the ever talented Darnell at djkardkreations asking us to reveal a mistake we made during our cardmaking. We all make mistakes and those of us with creative papercrafting skills usually find a way to disguise them without anyone else noticing. You know who I'm talking about - we've all done it and we do it well! And as much time as I invest in making a handcrafted card, I'm for sure not throwing it away if I don't have to.

Well, I remembered a time when I didn't catch my mistake before posting my card for the whole world to see. I had stayed up super late making a card for my daughter from the tooth fairy for a very "special" tooth. You can read the original blog post for more details.

Anywhooo... can you spot my mistake?


If you can't find it, the note on the front meant to say, "..it would mean a lot to me...". I discovered my mistake later, long after the card had been posted to my blog. Misspelled words and all, I still love this card and we will always treasure it as a childhood keepsake. You can view the full post here with lots more photos and card details.

  5. Oh, how upsetting it is when we do such stupid things. But yes, I have done plenty in my days of card making and usually spot things. But I hope we can sit back and laugh a bit over these boo boos.

  8. Oh, what a beautiful tooth fairy you created (the flying teeth make me giggle)...and the note is especially sweet! I hear you with the sentiment 'oops', as I've done a few (zillion *grin*) myself! Sometimes we just have to read between the lines! Fabulous boo-boo!

  10. Its a beautiful card and will be treasured by your daughter and probably shown to her children who will all sit there and ponder what you meant by 'mean' instead of me. I am so enjoying this hop and seeing others can make mistakes too.

  14. This is such a darling card, Jen, even with the Big Fat Boo Boo! Your coloring is divine! You put a lot of work into it so I'm glad you didn't notice it at the time; you stayed up late and would have been so devastated! Now it's a fun story to tell in more ways than one! I assume you've become a follower on my sidebar and I thank you for that! I am now a subscriber since you don't have a follow button and I hope to see you again soon! Happy April Fool's Day and thank you for playing in my first BFCBB Hop!! Hugs, Darnell

  15. Awwww, this is an adorable card and such a fun idea too! Yes, I saw the mistake and all I can say is that this stuff happens. lol It happens to the best of us, but that's ok because it shows that we are human. Plus it is fun to look back through our memento's and laugh. I think you and your daughter will have fun looking back on this one! Hugs, Brenda
