Happy Friday & Happy Weekend to you all! Well as I'm writing this the snow is falling once again here in Northern VA and we're expected to get a few inches along with high winds and temps in the teens--blech!! When is spring again? LOL! Today I have a project that involves chores and to-do list--we all have them and we all have ones that make us happy and ones that probably don't. I don't mind cleaning--I really don't--I like my house to be neat, clean & orderly--I can't stand clutter/mess. But laundry & ironing is a whole 'nother story for me, hee hee--I HATE THEM! Now granted neither chore is hard to do, but I just strongly dislike them--I will wear every piece of clothing in my closet that doesn't need to be ironed before I iron something, LOL! And laundry, I don't mind putting it in the washer/dryer but the folding, the putting it away and the fact that the chore seems never ending. Just when you get all of the laundry done, the dang hamper is filled to the brim again. It doesn't help that hubby comes home, strips off his suit to put on jeans & sweatshirt for a bit then changes AGAIN into his jammies and throws everything into the hamper like the 5 MINUTES he had it on it got SOOO dirty---it irks me, seriously! And don't get me started on the kids--there are so many discarded clothes in my daughter's room that I don't know what's clean or dirty so I have to wash it all and my son well, let's just say he can't ever keep his clothes clean, LOL! And no I don't want them washing anything cuz' I don't trust any of them to do it right (yes, my control freakness setting in) but they are all required to put their clean laundry away (ha ha--yeah right, like that happens only 50% of the time)!
So I would put laundry at the top of my "HATE TO DO LIST", hee hee! So what's your least favorite chore to do and why? Funniest comment will win a NEW pad of Basic Grey's "Sugar Rush" and a $15 gift certificate to 7 Kid's College Fund just because I hope to get a good laugh to make me forgot about the laundry I have to do and the snow that is outside, 'kay!!? Let me know by Sunday at midnite and then I'll pick a funny winner & share it with you all! If I get enough comments, I'll pick a 2nd winner just because and they'll win a Gift Certificate as well!!
"Shy Nessa" from Mo's Digital Pencil--there are 4 of these cuties and you can see them all HERE but you can buy her separately HERE too! I just adore her and I colored her with Copics and added diamond glaze to her shoes and heart! I added stickles to the rim of the circle and on top of the diamond glazed heart (it's the only way to use stickles on digi images cuz they smear the ink for some odd reason--that irks me too, hee hee)!
The papers are from SU and the sentiment is from the PTI "Vintage Picnic Sentiments" set--I love that this card could be sent not only for Valentine's Day but just a Hello/Love You or Birthday card as well! The swirls got some stickles and pearls to dress them up (find the scroll punch HERE). And I had to add a cute metal charm--I added pink Smooch to the center to add some color (Smooch paints and Spritz can be added to any metal, plastic, wood or paper & even flower soft)!
PTI HERE (they come in packs of 10 and in cream or white) and the sentiment on the front is from the PTI set "Take Note" and embossed in white (with Stewart EP my fave). I created a lil' notepad cover and then a small pocket on the inside so you could slip appointment cards or recipts in. PTI has a template HERE that you can download to print right onto your cs to make these covers if you like---I make my own, but the template is nice if you need help with it.
NEW Lockhart image "Laundry"--I colored it with my Copics, added some stickles and some Sparkle Fluff in white to the towels! I used my Nestabilities Labels 4 to cut the image out, left it in the die and then sponged around the edges of the die to keep the frame nice & white (did that on the Valentine card above too)!
Both of these projects are for sale HERE in my Etsy store along with some other new stuff if you want to check them out! Have a fab weekend & I'll see ya back here tomorrow!!
