Need a chuckle???

Yep!  I'm back with a 2nd post for today!
It's such a beautiful day here in Ohio (actually washed windows today), and I probably should be doing more 'spring' cleaning but hey ... spring is just beginning so I have plenty of time!  Right???

Besides, I wanted to share a cute card I made to join in the challenges
at Classy Cards n Such (Silly or Fun Stamp) as well as Joan's Touch (pattern paper, use a stamp, corners).  Here's what I came up with ...

LOL!  Oh I know SO MANY that could 'relate' to this card!!
(myself included, lol)  What fun!

The stamped image is Inky Antics 'Worldly Women #3'.
I've colored her using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers but her dress is paper pieced!  The reverse side of the upper 'green' pattern paper from First Edition Paper 'Love Letters'.  The lower half paper is a scrap of Graphic45 'Secret Gardens'.
The dividing ribbon is a dark green Offray satin from either JoAnns or Michaels.
And the corner treatment is Cheery Lynn Designs B165 'Lace Corner Deco E'.

A few challenges to share in:
Loves Rubberstamps - Anything Goes

Well the sun is still shining so I'm headed outside for a bit to see how much 'outdoor' spring cleaning I can do!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a wonderful day!
