Hi Everyone

Good Tuesday morning to my lovely regulars, my new comers and to anyone who passes quietly through.

I did start off with socks on the line either side of the puss cat, but I wasn't quite happy, it seemed too Christmassy, and because I knew this card would be going live in the New Year I decided to spice up January. I hope it's not too Saucy. I drew a pair of men's pants and added them to the card and asked my son what he thought. He said my goodness mum what are those , they don't look like pants, you need to google mens pants. I thought isn't that wrong!!. So I asked if I could draw a pair of his ( from his pant draw), and this is what I came up with.

The colour of the pants and leg length have been changed to protect the modesty of the recipient!

The ladies pants were a lot less stressful. I also asked L Steph about the contents of the card, and she said not knowing C E, maybe they'll have a  sense of humor, and luckily they do, as they gave the go ahead for the card. Thanks Steph.

So here is the big reveal, so to speak!!

  1. A really lovely card Tina so fresh looking, really love this one, no doubt inspired by Bubble and Squeak and the antics they get up to! I must admit your card took me down memory lane, we once had a corgi who could jump to the washing line and swing from it! Thank you for sharing such a sweet card with us.

  7. Good afternoon Tina,,
    Thank you for your comment on my card and Rose. I really appreciate you taking an interest in my work.
    I use one of the first ever SB Rose Dies. I have long thrown the packaging away.
    It is basically a set of "deckle edged" circles which I then cut into to form the petals.
    I use min.160gsm paper and Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I find once the glue dries it gives a very strong/firm flower.
    e-mail me on pjdtrimbush@aol.com if you need any further information.

  11. The incidence of skin cancers in Australia is two to three times the rates in Canada, goedkope timberlands schoenen the United States and Britain, the Cancer Council said.
