Wish card

Good morning on this rather wet Saturday here.I suppose
the garden needs the rain though ! Another weekend and
so yet another  'LIM'  card . The recipe this week  is .......
"You can use the shop bought type or you can make your
 own one way or another. We know you will be inventive
 if you don't have any in your stash "...

Posting card first to spare you having to read all below, but
please do if you have the odd hour lol :) Handmade Washi tape
using tissue, d/s tape, stamped with tapestry stamps &  use 
of lots of naughty words :)

Thankyou C&J for choosing my card to be showcased last week,
 so kind :)

Fairly sure this is a 'Day for Daisies' digi, I added the Wish sentiment & the star.

 Well panic set in early this time lol, as I am not a fan of Washi
 tape . I did know I had some lurking around here in my craft
 room. A freebie a while ago which of course I haven't used.
 Hmmm but could I find it..............NO ! ( much searching and
 muttering to  myself )..."I must put things in  logical places".

 Tape should be with all my other tapes grrrrr.
 So the only thing to do was to make my own. Let's just say it
 didn't go too well..... ( understatemenet of the year) all that sticking
 and trying  to peel the back off flimsy tissue paper. Almost lost the  
will to live!!! Anyway sorry about the rambling YET again, here's
 what I came up with.

 Do  have a lovely weekend whatever you  have planned ( smiles).
ps. Sorry I am so late commenting again , ( catching up today).
The cleaning and sorting ( almost finished in rest of the house
 now....sighs! )  has begun in earnest ( whoever he is !) in my craft
 room and as you  all know ( insert much laughter here)  that 
isn't an easy place  to clean and  sort lol.

So pleased for my DIL as she has passed her GCSE in 
Spanish and got an A gusta ! ( thanks
to my lovely friend  Loli for teaching me  a little Spanish  too
mwahhh xx :)

 It seems I have another unexpected big family party to plan again
 here  for thirteen of us  for next week. Raiding recipe books
 and racking  my one remaining brain cell !

I love your wishing on a star image, Viv. Such a lovely way to combine your washi tape!
You have been a busy bee, and it sounds as though you're going to have a lot more organising and entertaining to do. It'll be all worthwhile in the end...I'm sure x

What a very entertaining post! I've chuckled my way through the whole thing Viv... thanks for the laugh, even if it was mostly unintended.
I think your card is wonderful, despite the frustration you felt. You did a great job creating the washi tape it looks great.
Have a great party!

Viv, this is so precious! I think you might have back-to-back LIM showcases!! Thanks for the honesty about making one's own Washi - I wondered how easy that was and now I know!

Have a great weekend! I'm sure your party will be a huge success!! Hugs, Dr Arnell
