Sniffing Glue

Today there was a little mishap at the Guild Hall. The Lady Commander of Copics decided to assist the house gnomes in planting some tulips to adorn the grounds for our lady mother’s impending visiting. As she was planting them however, she seemed to be handling them too rough as the petals kept breaking off. Being the crafty guildy she is (and ignorant of proper flower care), the Lady Commander quickly fetched her glue from the crafting chambers and proceeded to glue the petals back on the tulips. Stepping back to admire her work she smiled, thinking herself rather clever. As she leaned over to smell the blossom she had just repaired, that’s when it happened.

This card was created for the reminder post about the Just Some Lines “For Mom” Challenge that is happening now!

I started this card by creating the background using Dylusions spray inks, a stencil and a Dylusions stamp from the “Bordering on the Edge” set. I coloured the Just Some Lines “Emo Tulip” image using Prismacolors. I added the word “mom” using some puffy sparkly stickers that were given to me by one of the machinists who works at the carriage and wagon repair shop in the village. This earned me +281 sticky exp points which will assist me in future glue related quests I’m sure. Some brads and ribbon finished off the front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments using two different Unity sets “So Deer to Me” and “Encircled Love”.

On the envelope I used the same stamp from “Bordering on the Edge” and inked it using two different Distress Inks to match the colour scheme of the card from.

This colourful creation will be hanging out in the following challenges:

I came outside and saw the Lady Commander still sniffing the flower. “I didn’t know you were into tulips so much,” I commented, chuckling as I walked towards her.
“Mfphing nfis,” the Lady Commander mumbled.
I looked at her confused, not understanding what she was saying. I activated our sister psychic powers and spoke to her using only our minds. “What are you trying to say?!” I asked.
I tried using glue to fix the petals, and now the flower is stuck to my face!” came the desperate reply.
I did the only thing a good sister would do...I burst out laughing.
