My BIG Fat Card BOO BOO

Well happy April 1st to ya!
 No FOOLS here! Just my My BIG fat card BOO BOO of last year.
Thank you Darnell for this fun lite-hearted hop!
Here it is in all it's Grammar Error Glory:)
Can you see it??
Back story...My oldest daughter, almost 18, was getting married in 3 days and I wanted to make a card for her for The Big Day. In my haste and frazzled state of mind, I chose the wrong use/spelling  of a word. It wasn't until a kindly gentleman reader pointed it out to me in a comment after publishing, that I saw the error. I quickly fixed the problem and was grateful for the grammar police...I really need them around as I don't squeak/speak or type so good,always...my mind is easily Be-fuddled! HA!!
I DO apologize to those that must endure my poor use of the English language...It has never been my strong point:)

Thanks for stopping by..Enjoy the rest of the BOO BOO Hop and find that we are ALL human after all:)

HUGS!

  5. Yes! I do that often. I know better, but when I'm tired I ALWAYS mess that up. You are totally excused and how exciting is that!? Congrats to you and your family. :)

  6. Oh, how awful for you when you worked so hard on the card. But I think we all mess up occasionally. If a card was perfect, no one would know it was handmade and done with lots of love.

  7. Wow, I'm wondering if I've done that and haven't caught it. What a great save! Thanks for sharing~

  10. Speaking of grammar police..Let's try this comment again, shall we:
    The 'grammar police' have been called on my cards (amongst other written items) once or twice *grin*! Your card is gorgeous and what's a little 'you're' vs. 'your' when it comes to family! Thank you for sharing your oopsie with us!

  12. I'm not sure I understand the problem with you're card, LauraJane! It's a maddening error and I can tell you, this type of grammar error happens more often once you become a gramma!! Another one that sneaks by me a lot is "it's" and "its!" Thank goodness someone was kind enough to point it out so you could fix it in time! It's a gorgeous card and a lovely sediment for the occasion as a reminder to breathe and enjoy the day! Happy April Fool's Day and thank you so much for playing in my first BFCBB Hop!! Hugs, Darnell

  13. Great card, lucky it wasn't up to me to correct it. I struggle with the correct grammar at all times. I had full education but English and all its correctness is just beyond me. Your daughter I am sure would have been so excited by the day she would have treasured it just as it was.

  20. Giggling here, not at you but with you as I've done similar spelling errors! I think using contractions can get confusing especially when you have a lot on your mind. Your card is just beautiful and I'm sure your daughter loved it as well and would have still loved it with the spelling error. Hugs, Brenda
