Unattractive Housework

>> Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Don't you just love a card that tickles your funny bone?  Well, this one does it for me!

I so would rather be doing something crafty than washing floors or cleaning the stove.  Even with my smooth cook top range, it's one of my least favorite chores! 

I think the retro look of Josephine the Bold and Dear Housework sentiment are just over the top cute :)  Since the image was a throwback, I made a little yo-yo embellishment and took the color inspiration for the card, from the material I used. 

After stamping my Interlocking Circles background, I colored them in to match and I used white embossing powder, as well as the new Retro Starburst stamp for the back drop to my card.

Have you checked out the stamps in the new releases section yet?  Lots of great designs and I know you will love them :)

And one last thing, Happy Valentine's Day to you!

This is super, Karin! Love the colors and the white embossing. The circles on top are just terrific with the little punched border below.

Karin....a day or so late and a dollar short:) I LOVE the colors you've chosen and your homemade dp with the interlocking circles is the bomb. Best of all, the spiral punch border. Great creation.
