Well Isn't That Just Bleachy Keen

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.

I 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”.
 
On 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.

On 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:
Pixie Dust Studio Challenge: No Squares Allowed
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #5: Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody Challenge #12: Anything Goes
Love To Create Challenge #50: Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Die Cuttin’ Divas Challenge #100: Anything Goes
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #87: Make Your Mark
Unity Friends With Flair (later on this week)

In an attempt to not get too melancholy by my fast approaching name day and adding another year to the stack, I shall focus on completing some more crafting quests and playing with my direwolf...he always manages to cheer me up.

How can I not love a card featuring underwear? And I must say, I find the thought of sorting/folding underwear & socks pretty depressing all on its own ;)
