Don't forget to proofread when building a sentiment!

Yep, that is my tip for all of you.  I used JustRite Just the Right Words and stamped a lovely sentiment for a really awesome person.  Unfortunately I did not take my own advice and when finished assembling my card, this is what I noticed:

NO!

NO!

NOOOOOOO!


*I can tell you with certainty that I wasn't very pleased with myself*

Not only did I work on this card for the better part of the afternoon, but my husband wanted to see it (twice) as it is for him to give.  Neither of us even noticed :(

I couldn't take it apart and restamp so I had to add a little "you" stamp. 
Awkward looking - oh so sad :(

Card Ingredients:
Stamps:  JustRite Just the Right Words
Inks: Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegrenate

Oh hun, I can imagine your heart sinking. I think the revised version looks fine though. To be honest the recipient probably wouldn't have noticed either though! LOL

Well This is just BEAUTIFUL!! Even with the accident and you really did a GREAT job with squweezing in that you, because I probably wouldn't have thought any thing of it either if you wouldn't have said anything!! Anymore there are so many stamp sets that are putting different words together and using different fonts and sizes!! It turned out AMAZING and the recipient will LOVE and Cherish it I'm sure!! ;) turn that Frown right side up!! ;) THANKS for sharing and I hope you have a Fabulous Week!! ;)

I think this card looks amazing, and in your final version...If I had only seen that card....I would have definitely thought that was your original intention. You did a great job fixing it, and to make you feel better...I have this same set of stamps (I really like them and use them a lot) But I did sort of the same thing with them...
