Orange You Glad It's Wednesday?


I have to start by saying I have no WIGW card. I am extremely busy this week and haven't had much chance to stamp. This card today is for the MOJO Monday Sketch. It's a very fun sketch I think. I really love this card. It took me WAY too long to make though. That is another reason for no WIGW card.

You will notice that I still haven't ironed the background of my photo area. I really hate to iron so the idea of ironing a sheet seems way out there for me. Don't the wrinkles give "character" to my picture:) ? Just kidding. It will go on my list of things to do today.

Ok, here are the deets: My card base is Whisper White. I used some retired DP from SU (Hawaii Papaya) for the brown and orange. I matted each piece with the same color cardstock and then paper pierced the edges. The circle in the top left corner is cut with my CM circle cutter and run through my cuttlebug using swiss dots embossing folder. I matted it with Choc Chip and then a piece of Kiwi Kiss that was cut with my scalloped circle nesties. The flower is from Looks Like Spring (retired) and was stamped twice with Tango Tangerine and cut out. I used a Jumbo Brad for the center and topped it with a half pearl from the Pretties Kit. I then stamped the leaf from Best Blossoms (retired) in Kiwi Kiss and also cut this out. The tag on the right is from an SU sizzlet packet of tags and was cut out twice with Kiwi Kiss and White. I stamped the sentiment in Choc chip and added the flower in Tango. The sentiment was a dollar stamp at Michaels and the flower is from Verve's Beautiful You. I just tied a knot in the Vanilla/Kiwi Satin ribbon and adhered to the sentiment with a glue dot. The tag is attached with dimensionals.

Now that I have shared my card I would like to share a few stories over the next few days of funny things that have happened to me over the last week. My daughter had me take a "quiz" out of one of her books about what kind of person I am. It was only a 3 questions quiz so not very accurate. But it said that I was funny, was good at telling jokes and had my friends in stitches. 1. I don't like jokes very much. I definitely can't tell a joke. 2 While I may have my friend's in stitches at times it is usually from them laughing AT me. Because 3 I have a funny life. Things happen to me and my family members that are funny. Case in point...........

Last week I was getting ready in the bathroom. I have a cupboard right above my toilet with lotions and various other things for getting ready. I had just put something back in the cupboard and, without me realizing it, a tube of lotion fell out on top of the toilet seat. I grabbed my socks from the sink counter and proceeded to sit down on the toilet seat to put them on. A very loud ...ahem...noise erupted from my derriere region as I sat down. Basically, I "whoopi cushioned" myself. When I sat on that lotion tube it sounded like...well you know. I mean this kind of stuff doesn't happen to the average person. It cracked me up though. I had to run down and share with my family the "joke" I had just played on myself.

Stay tuned for more stories like this that have occurred to me in just ONE week's time.

Hope you have a great Wednesday.
