My Motto

>> Friday, February 3, 2012

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff

Happy Friday!
Yep, that note says it all! That's my motto...all the way. I even have a note pad on my fridge that says "The only reason I have a kitchen is because it came with the house." Don't get me wrong. I can cook; I just don't want to. I don't even like to think about what's for dinner. So if my husband doesn't give 2 weeks notice that he's tired of a dish, the rule is, officially he still likes it. :) And to paraphrase Erma Bombeck "My second favorite household chore is cleaning (she said ironing, but I don't do that, either). My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint." I miss her witty words. She was one of a kind.

These terrific new DRS images will be released tomorrow! Yay! I love 'em! I crack up every time I read this greeting. Even my husband laughed. He knows me so well. So I stamped my new favorite lady and colored her w/ markers. I had this black oval frame left over from something and liked it so I cut around her elbow in order to let it be out of the box a little. The 50's retro sparkles were stamped in pink and black on the bg. I added a double punched border and a line of similar sparkle ribbon. I thought the punched houses and fence made her look like she's breaking out of the burbs, lol. You go, girl!!

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25. Thanks so much for stopping by! Forget the cleaning and go have fun this weekend!

You do know how to put it all together, Julie! Your card is brilliant!

Kathy Vogel said...

That sentiment is so funny & true for me too. T he pink & black color combination is perfect. The houses & fence punches do indeed make her look like she is "breaking out of the burbs" as you say.

Fantastic color combo! She's a lady you wouldn't want to mess with!
