Tag, you're it...

Hpapy Aripl Floos Day!

I was tnriyg to cmoe up wtih siotmnehg fnnuy and cevler to do for toayd's psot but utnortufnaely niotnhg rlaely cmae to me. So iansetd I tghuoht taht I wulod sahre a ltitle fiactod taht I fuond on the irntneet... did you konw taht by unisg the icndeblire pweor of the hmuan mnid, aocdcrnig to rseecrah at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mttaer in waht oderr the lterets in a wrod are, the olny irpoamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rhgit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whoutit a pboerlm. Tihs is bucseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey ltteer by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Aaznmig, huh?

Heeheehee... ok, so the jokester in me won out. I couldn't help myself! That is oddly cool though don't you think? ;)

Now for today's card... it was a fairly quick one considering that all of those pretty tags were part of a single sheet of paper. All I had to do was cut them out, add a bit of twine and a sentiment, then line them up across my card. Voila... layout complete. And it is so different from my usual go-to layouts that I felt like I was shaking things up a bit which is always a good thing. I added Gorjuss Girl Rose as my focal character simply because I thought she would look smashing with this Pretty Party paper. That, and I'm still on my mission to ink up some of my more neglected stamps. :)

Ok, tmie for me to siplt. Hvae fun tadoy kodids and aylwas parnk rnespsoliby. ;)

Yes, I've read about that research, and it's really amazing, isn't it? The only word I couldn't make out in your story was 'fiactod' lol. Love the card.
Have a great Sunday! Hope it turned out dry and sunny? It's warm and sunny over here. Outside, that is. In my home office it's on the cool side, but it's high time I got my new laptop up and running, since it's my main tool for earning a living.

Amy this is so sweet. I love your little tags that you have made. I also love your April Fools writing. Only you would think to do that. I just do it as I am a bad speller. lol.... Hope you are having a great day. I was able to use a new stamp (digi) for my card tomorrow and I have to say that I am so proud of myself. It turned out just like I wanted, so I am really in the mood to be creative today. Hugs, Lisa

Awww this is so sweet Amy, your colouring is fantastic as always... and you do need a spell checker he he joking .. aren't our minds amazing, I read every word of that!

Craftdee said...

Too cool, Amy!! I did know about it because my nephew has what is known as a "coding" problem, which is a form of dyslexia, and one of the exercises he was given went along these lines; the interesting thing is that this was 25 years ago!!! Cute tag, but then you never do any other knid!! Donna ☺

Cami said...

Oh Amy, you are so funny and yes, I've heard about this research, and yes, I was able to read what you wrote like it was all written funny is that...but that's the human wonder I have a hard time finding typos LOL!!! Seriously, your card is super adorable!
