Word for Word Translations are Funny

Spanish MPP

That’s Great… Enjoy… This Day – This is how it reads literally translated.  No wonder some people don’t understand me… LOL.   I sometimes feel as if some people may not understand the way I explain things.

I’m just joking, but seriously, there are times when I have to think things through a little more than the average person because I also think in Spanish as I write in English.  I know some of you are knodding yes… because you know it’s true.[clear-line]

Eso es genial … Disfrute … Este Día – Así es como se lee literalmente traducido.  Con razon algunas personas no me entienden… JAJAJA.  A veces me siento como si algunas personas no pueden entender la forma como yo explico las cosas.

Sólo estoy bromeando, pero en serio, hay momentos en que tengo que pensar las cosas un poco más que la persona promedio porque también pienso en español, mientras escribo en Inglés.  Sé que algunos de ustedes dicen sí…porque sabes que es verdad.

Lesson Learned: This lesson is an old one you’ve heard over and over again.  Yet I will continue to preach it… why?  Because it’s true!  THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN STAMPING.  If you make a mistake, it can be covered up with an embellishment or do what I did here and turn the paper to the other side… =)  Did you see how easy that was?[clear-line]

 Lección Aprendida: Esta lección es una vieja que has escuchado una y otra vez. Sin embargo, lo voy a seguir repitiendo… ¿por qué?  Porque es la verdad! NO HAY ERRORES EN ESTAMPADO.  Porque es la verdad! Si comete un error,  puede ser cubierto con un elemento decorativo o de vuelta al papel para el otro lado. =)   ¿Viste que fácil fue?

Please leave a comment below… tell me if you have ever used card kits to make cards… if so, which one’s?

My whole purpose of this blog is to share my simple handmade cards with as many people as possible and I can’t do it without your help, so go on and share.

If you could pass this post along to at least one friend who you think would love to learn about card kits
that would be great!

  1. No worries, Maggie. I’ve never noticed you having a lack of words, lol! You know our mutual friend in Florida? She always says in English, “the mother of Joe” instead of “Joe’s mother” and I have always found it endearing. Sending virtual hugs to both of you este dia.
