Thanks for stopping by the Guild Hall. Preparations are in full swing here, in anticipation of the arrival of our lady mother, traveling from Castle Cambric to celebrate Mother’s Day. The house gnomes tend to get uneasy when our mother visits as she has quite a commanding presence. One of the house gnomes, Myrtle, had decided to make an extreme amount of doilies to set on all the side tables around the Guild Hall. I’m not sure what possessed her to do such a thing, but I left her to it, not wanting to spoil her pleasure by telling her our mother was not fond of doilies.
I started this card by cutting the base out using patterned paper and the Art Philosophy cartridge. The letters for "mom" were cut using the Birthday Bash cartridge. I stamped the lady, using the Unity “Queen of the Universe” itty bitty, on the inside of the card so you could see her through the little wi. The sentiment was also stamped using that same set.
On the inside above the lady I stamped the “thanks” using the There She Goes "Cinnamon" set and the rest of the sentiment with a Unity stamp (not sure where it came from as it was in a grab bag I won). This earned me +184 mysterious XP points. I don't know what stat to apply them to as there are a mystery though...
On the envelope I stamped the corners with the Inkadinkado “Decorative Corners” set as I thought it sorta tied in with the flower doilies on the paper.
This card will stand tall in the following challenges:
In the end Myrtle had made 27 doilies. I dutifully placed them around the Guild Hall as she watched with pride, sure that these frilly clumps would impress my lady mother. I suppose I could always try and donate them somewhere after this weekend….who would want 27 doilies though? Most people don’t even want one...
