Today as I was absently sorting my lord husband’s freshly laundered small clothes, my mind started to stray as I repetitively folded and sorted each item. In less than 14 revolutions of our planet, it will be my name day, and I had yet to started preparations for any festivities. I am finding as the years wear on, my name day becomes of less import and rather than excited I start to feel sad as the date approaches. Suddenly no longer interested in the white under-cloths before me, I set out to my crafting chamber to create a card.
started this card by cutting out the base using the Art Philosophy
cartridge. I then cut out a smaller layer using some textured paper I had
recently procured from the discount shelf at the Paper Weaver’s stall
in the market square, adhering it with pop dots. This earned me +62 dimensional exp points.
I stamped the image from the Unity “Change is a
Good Thing” stamp and coloured the seams of the underwear using my
Distress Markers, while adding some shading with the Hydra Brush. I
stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s “Jessie’s ABCs”.
the inside I continued the sentiment (which I saw on one of those
e-cards everyone posts on FaceBook) with “Jessie’s ABCs” and added a Happy Birthday from My Pink Stamper’s “Family & Friends” set.
the envelope I fashioned using my Scoring Board of Deep Folds, I
stamped an image from the Dylusions “Further Around the Edge” set.
This tighty whitey will be stretching its way into the following challenges:

cheer me up.
