What a great challenge! I guess my joke would be "I cleaned my house last week. Sorry you missed it." To me this whole card is funny. I just love this greeting and the look on her face. This is a sneak peak of some brand new images from DRS Designs and they'll be released on Sat. Feb 4. And that greeting is my motto all the way!
I even have a note pad on my fridge that says "The only reason I have a kitchen is because it came with the house." Don't get me wrong. I can cook; I just don't want to. I don't even like to think about what's for dinner. So if my husband doesn't give 2 weeks notice that he's tired of a dish, the rule is, officially he still likes it. :) And to paraphrase Erma Bombeck "My second favorite household chore is cleaning (she said ironing, but I don't do that, either). My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint." I miss her witty words. She was one of a kind.
I stamped my new favorite lady and colored her w/ markers. I had this black oval frame left over from something and liked it so I cut around her elbow in order to let it be out of the box a little. The 50's retro sparkles were stamped in pink and black on the bg. I added a double punched border and a line of similar sparkle ribbon. I thought the punched houses and fence made her look like she's breaking out of the burbs, lol. You go, girl!!
The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. Hope you like these images as much as I do. This just posted on the DRS blog and while you're there, we'd love for you check out the DRS Thursday Challenge. So simple and you don't have to use DRS images to enter! My blog: The Write Stuff
