Housework Stinks and Star Rocks!

Smiley from

Housework. Don't ya just hate it?! I don't know, I think some people enjoy it, blech, not me! Although it's nice when it's done, maybe I need to hire a cleaning lady. Yeah, right.

When I saw this image in the Crafty Secrets Girlfriends Images & Journal Notes booklet of the lady and the wringer washer, I had to make a card for my friend Lana. She was so funny at the retreater commenting on my southern way of talking Smiley from

Supplies: Stamps - gingham background stamp. Paper - red & black card stock, Georgia Pacific white, image from Crafty Secrets Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes booklet. Ink - red classic pad. Acces. - ribbon, button, felt flower, black brads. Tools - nestie scalloped rectangle, slit punch, Scor-Pal, swiss dots Cuttlebug folder, Big Shot, Round-it-all. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I made this Thank You card for someone who is very generous and she loves to color and design!
I started out sewing on my card and my Janome mini sewing machine was giving me fits. The thread got hung up and then the needle wouldn't pick up the bobbin thread. Pfffffft. I couldn't get it to work. I have NO patience for sewing machines when they aren't running smoothly! Needless to say I only got the top of the cardstock sewn. The eggplant cardstock was a left over piece that I had when I used my coil binding machine. I liked the holes on the side.
OK, back to Star Rocks Smiley from
Star is my fave girly OCL stamp! I love her hair, the fact she's a rocker and I can relate to the peace sign and lava lamp!! Have you noticed all the peace sign stuff coming back in style? Cooool.

Supplies: Stamps - Our Craft Lounge Star Rocks. Paper - Georgia Pacific white & eggplant cardstock, MME Penny Lane, green notecard base & envy by Hero Arts.
Ink - Ranger Distress Black Soot, Copic markers. Acces. - Prima flowers, flower brads, ribbon. Tools - scalloped border punch, Scor-Pal, needlepoint canvas, paper piercer, broken sewing machine.
I hope your day is a good one, thanks for stopping by!

Great cards, Pam! I am NOT one who loves cleaning, either--just had to do it Mom came into town, but I do love it when it's done! I usually need a good reason to do it, though! Beautiful inspiration, as always--thanks!
