Well, it’s Monday again. A-freakin’-mazing how fast the weekend flies by. I wonder if it would if I was “really” retired? Would I still get the Sunday-afternoon-blues? Hmm. Not sure.
So – I had a bit of a revelation this weekend. Ready? Here ’tis.
Mrs. Brady had it made.
Not cuz they knew it was much more than a hunch.
Not even cuz all the girls had hair of gold like their mother (the youngest one in curls).
It was Alice!
Mrs. Brady had Alice.
I don’t even know if she realized how good she had it – her fake tv house was always clean – fake dinner was always ready and the fake dishes were always done.
And – thanks to Alice – Mrs. Brady wouldn’t even have gotten upset over…
Sigh…9 months. 15 more months of chewie….sigh…. Alice would just cheerfully vacuum up the mess. No. Wait – she’d pick up all the pieces, stuff them back in the toy and sew it up. All while a lovely roast was cooking in the oven.
want need Alice!! 😉
Now – my card for today is another Valentine’s Day card or a hey-I-really-love-you-here’s-a-card card. I used the Annual Catalog host-exclusive set called Love You Lots, plus a few goodies from the Sealed with Love Bundle. And threw in a little…Grateful Bunch! Take a look-see:
This one played along with the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches this week.
And…the Just Us Girls Photo Week inspired much of the card.
I started with a plain Whisper White panel and stamped a field of Grateful Bunch daisies across it – using So Saffron ink and stamping it off once before stamping the card. Then I SNAILd the panel to a Real Red mat.
My hearts are from the Sweet & Sassy Layering Framelits – and the Love Notes Framelits. I cut two Sweet & Sassy hearts – one from the Sending Love DSP Stack and one in Real Red. The Real Red heart got embossed in the Happy Heart TIEF, too.
I cut a heart from So Saffron card stock, using the Love Notes Framelits die. The last heart…started with the cute ladybug stamped image from Lots of Love. I stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White. Then I colored the image with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and cut the image with another Sweet & Sassy Framelit.
The sentiment is from the Sealed with Love stamp set. To start, I inked the little interlocked hearts image in Real Red, stamping it off once on scrap paper, then stamped my card stock. Over that, I stamped the little sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Then I cut the image with the matching die in the Love Notes Framelits.
I adhered the three bottom hearts to the card front with Liquid Glue. The lady bug heart and the sentiment are popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a Real Red Enamel Shapes heart and the card front was done.
On the inside, I simply stamped a single Grateful Bunch daisy in stamped-off-once So Saffron in the middle of a Whisper White panel. I used some sticky note tape to cover the other two flowers on the stamp.
For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added more of the Grateful Bunch daisies in So Saffron across the front…
