Happy Hump Day!
ETA--This card was made for Kim Heggins for her birthday on March 21st, now that the birthday party linky is set up on Kylie's blog I can add that to this post. Happy Birthday Kim!
I was so excited when I received happy mail yesterday from Lawn Fawn.
The Loads of Fun set is so cute and I can think of so many different types of cards that it could be used for.
Our last house had a laundry room upstairs on the third floor. So when our kids were young they didn't have hampers in their rooms. At the end of the day the laundry went into the laundry room. They put the whites in the whites basket and darks into the dark. Once they were in junior high I would put their clean clothes on their beds and they would put their own clothes away. Once they were in high school I made sure they knew how to do laundry, I still did it but I wanted them to know how. A good system right?
So I was puzzled why when they come home from university that they bring home all their laundry?
It has become the joke that because I miss them so much they bring it for me-lol Well last week when they were home I asked about what they do at school? Well laundry is really expensive especially the dryer! Further discussion lead to how expensive fruit and veggies are. I had to laugh out loud, they are learning about life!
Back to the card, I think I will be pulling this one out a lot. I started by stamping and colouring all the images. Then of course I had to watercolour a background--do you remember going through this with me and sequins? Once it was dry I played around with the images to find a placement that worked and adhered them to the base. The washing machine and watercolour panel were adhered with foam tape for dimension.
This is also for Day 24 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.com!
