F4A372 4/7 Odd Sayings?
3 Attachment(s)
Hi all! Stamperrobin aka Robin Clendenning here.

It’s my turn to host the Free 4 All Friday Challenge this week.

F4A372 Odd Sayings? Need help? Here are some suggestions (and you can find many more on line)...

"Bats in the belfry"
"Big fish in a small pond"
"Barking up the wrong tree"
"As happy as a clam"
"High on the hog"
"Hold your horses"
"He can't see the forest for the trees"
"Waking up on the wrong side of the bed"
"Spill the beans"
"Hoe your own row"
"Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy"

My challenge to you: Make a card that reflects an odd saying like "Happy as a clam", "In the pink", "Two peas in a pod" or make a card inspired by one of these TYPE saying that is UNIQUE to your state or country.

Just for fun
(optional, in NO WAY mandatory) add a button to your card. *For anyone new to these challenges, this extra imaginary points option is just for your own fun and your own personal challenge IF you choose to.
