Oops... A Ryan Post!

Oops! 
No Mad About...Mad Men series today. I have been busy with ongoing projects (Gallery Idol) and didn't have time to create for the Mad Men series. I am sure you'll understand.
 
What is oops anyway? Interjection: oops
  1. Acknowledging a minor mistake.
    Oops! I left a big mess in your craft room.

  2. Used sarcastically to acknowledge a major mistake.
    I just dented the most expensive card stock! Oops!
    I almost ran over Dr. John's finger in that Cuttlebug . Oops!
    Oops, I didn't see 50% off coupon and got it for full price at Michael's!
    Synonyms: oopsy, uh-oh, whoops, whoops-a-daisy
  3. oops
We all had those oops moments in life. All we need is a little bit of humor sometimes...
The colorful inky images/blotches on the card were the result from the blown alcohol inks on the glossy card stock. I had to blow the ink very quickly as the inks are quite dense and do not move very fast...However, the vibrant colors are quite lovely! I happen to have the perfect sentiment for them.
Humor makes everything better! Hope this post (and Ryan, too) make you smile!


 Voting begins at noon (MDT) on Monday, June 3rd. You will need to create an account  (if you don't have one) with a password. When the voting time comes, you are all set to go. You can register here
Thanks for stopping by!
