But I'm kind of a hoarder, or packrat or whatever, so I set it aside and went off working on another card (I have a ton of birthday cards to get ready this month!!). Anyway, I was sitting here, fuming about the goof, when I remembered a joke or story I had read somewhere about all the animals who shouldn't have been invited onto the ark (you know: skunks, rats, mosquitos etc.) and so I was looking at this unfinished card and suddenly woodpeckers came to mind. That would work to "cover up" the mistake! So that's what I used. And I think it turned out funny.
You never know when a goof can become an asset! So don't pitch those mistakes immediately anyway, hang onto them for a while and rethink.
