Sorry, I meant to come back a little earlier and play cards with you. What happened was my neighbor needed me to help her with something and in the process, the back door fell off, crashing through the plate glass living room window, sending the other neighbor's dog out into the street and across two other backyards and out of sight, so she took off after him and I went in search of a deep bowl to rescue the goldfish that were now lying somewhere under the living room couch.
Hmm, no, actually I just went out to a lunch that ran longer than I expected. You know how rowdy and long-winded six blue-haired old ladies can get!
So, without further a dew:
Here is the first card, which I made for the "Hello, Sunshine" theme at the always-fabulous Less Is More challenge.
Next, while I had my SRM thank you stickers on my desk, I made another thank you card. This one was inspired by the The Card Concept "Frilly and Fabulous" challenge. In addition to the sticker sediment, I used: a NBUS woodgrain stamp from Altenew "Wood Pallet Background," a "Folded Banner" die from Simon Says Stamp, a store-bought blossom from Jessica Swift, a piece of v.o. mesh, and two enamel dots.
Wait, hold up. We have a bonus card today!
The Mister's gym shorts needed an iron-on patch on the left thigh, just above the hem. (Ancient unsolved mystery: Why is it that all men's shorts rip horizontally right there?) At first, I laughed hysterically when he pointed it out to me, with a fond far-away look in his eyes, as if remembering the early days of our marriage when I did such a thing.
Then he went out of town for a couple of days and I don't know, I must have mist him because I thought I would shock his biscuit by patching them while he was away. So I got into my sewing basket (after taking a few icky minutes to remove all the spider webs) to see if I still had some antique iron-on patches and just look what I found under the bottom tray:
"Oh, would you look at that?" he marveled.
Whereupon, I gave him something else to marvel about.
Speaking of rejoinders, you all made some great comments to the last post. In fact, I was over whelmed by them! I've decided to give a spontaneous little somethin-somethin prize to Brenda of Inkspired to Stamp, who said:
"If you are under whelmed, does that mean your wheel was square or you just didn't finish in the alloted time?"
