Don't Drop Your Drawers!

This will be going to my crazy friend that was recently in an auto accident and is now having to use a walker for a while.  I'm telling ya' it looks exactly like her too!  Hair - short and gray.  Nightie - yellow her favorite color and she has a blue robe.  Boobs......yes, they're sagging!  Shoes - she always wears those Ugg bootie thingy-s.  Panties (drawers, bloomers, undies)...whatever you prefer to call them......

Ah, the panties.........several years ago I met her at lunch and we went walking into the local Dairy Queen.  You stand up at the counter to order and of course all the tables in there face the counter.  We were about half way through ordering and I looked down and yep..........she'd dropped her drawers!!!!   Her panties had fallen all the way down past her knees.  Seriously!  I'm one of those that always tries to find humor in situations but I completely lost it on this one.  I laughed so hard I was crying.  Everyone in there looked over to see what I was laughing about - right as she was trying to pull them back up.  That just made me laugh even harder!!  We still laugh about it to this day so I know she'll get a kick out of the card.

The image is from Polkadoodles, patterned paper and sentiment from SU, and the flowers from a die.

Changes..........also have a few changes I'm going to add here.  I'm finding it almost impossible to do all the commenting, make a card, take care of Jim, do everything else I need to do around here, and have any free time for, I'm making myself miserable even trying!   So, I'm not going to be commenting or posting as much in the future and I hope you understand.  Hopefully this will leave me a little extra time for other things.  

Thanks for stopping by.........and keep smiling!

Guesting for the Critters!

Critters, critters, everywhere!  I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer over at a new challenge this month called 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!     WhooHoo!!!!!  We all love the little critters and make cards using them - so come on over and join the fun and enter the challenge.

The challenge is always Anything Goes as long as you feature some type of critter.  Yep, that's all it takes....critters!  This month our sponsor is a store I actually wasn't familiar with but I am now and they have so many wonderful images.  It's called Fabrika Fantasy.  Check it out! You'll be amazed!

Now, on to the card..........This is a Chipmunk!  I've never seen one in this part of Texas but am sure we have them somewhere.  Pretty fascinating little guys that remind me of a baby squirrel.  This one is just happy that springtime weather has finally arrived (although down his way, we're hot enough for summer now) and wants everyone to be happy.   I'm not going to bore you with all the details on what and how I did whatever, but will tell you some of the supplies I used for this.  The main image is pre-colored from Fabrika Fantasy and I added some birds from Lawn Fawn and Newtons Nook, a cloud die with embossing added, distress inks, a frame die from Mama Elephant, and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.

I do hope you'll check out 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge and enter your card.
