Today a travelling pedlar stopped by the Guild Hall, attempting to sell us a robotic housekeeper. I assured the man that we had no need for such an extravagance when I had numerous house gnomes in my employ, whose sole purpose is to care for a household. The man insisted I “test drive” his newest model and he would come collect it in a week’s time to see if I’ve changed my mind. Virtually leaving me no choice, he left the robot on the doorstep and hurried on his way.
I made this card by cutting the robot maid and the sentiment out using the Robotz cartridge. Instead of the boring eyes that come with the cut, I gave her some fun googley eyes in two different sizes, as is my usual style. I always say anything with different sized eyes is automatically much cuter than its equal-eye-sized counterparts. I embossed the robot’s hair and apron using my Cuttlebug and trusty Swiss Dots folder. The background I embossed with my gears folder and added some Distress Ink to make the gears stand out a little more.
The inside sentiment I stamped using the Technique Tuesday “Tin Man” set. I stamped a little paw at the bottom, since I was going to sign my direwolf’s name in addition to mine and my lord husband’s.
This robotic card will take a byte out of the following challenges:
I turned towards the robotic maid and before I could say anything it opened its mouth and a computerized voice came out, “ROBOMOM-1200 REPORTING FOR DUTY. PLEASE INPUT FIRST TASK.” This was going to be an interesting week.
