Do I have you toadally confused with that title? I will explain...
My Mother-In-Law, Linda, and I had a great relationship. She was more than my Mother-In-Law, she was my friend. We liked to tease each other...a lot. Whenever I would show her a project I was working on she would glare at me and tell me "you're so perfect!" "Everything Tina does is always so perfect!" I'd say "Whatever!" and we'd both laugh.
About 4 years ago I decided I was going to make her a teddy bear. We had just found out that we were expecting baby #4 and I wanted to give her the teddy bear holding my first ultrasound picture as a Christmas gift. We thought that would be the perfect way to announce our pregnancy to her. The teddy bear turned out super cute! I'd say PERFECT. Until I realized that I had sewn the paws on the wrong side. Lol. I decided to leave it that way knowing she would appreciate my imperfection. Unfortunately, I was never able to give her the teddy bear. She passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 11, 2010.
This is a picture of the bear. We named it granny bear. I will eventually give it to Echo (the daughter I was pregnant with while making it).
Okay...Now on to my imperfect card! I created this card for the Chevron challenge going on over at Top Tip Tuesday. It's my second entry for their challenge...you can find the other one here.
The images are from the following Cricut image sets...
Tree - Teresa Collins December 25th
Christmas gifts - Winter Frolic, Christmas, Disney Pooh and Friends.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks Vintage Photo and Barn Door.
Looks good right?
Here's the imperfection...
Yes! I am that big of an airhead! I put everything on upside down! Lol!
When I realized I had done that I smiled, thinking of Linda laughing.
This one's for you Linda! I'm showcasing my imperfections =) I miss you tons!
Thank you all for stopping by Toadally Love To Craft! I hope my imperfect card has made you smile too.
