Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger & Returnees!

August 7, 2012 at 9:24 am 14 comments

Don’t be too shocked at the amount of posting! Have had a multi tasking load of crafting going on due to some other projects I’m doing. So.. thought I’d pop this ‘very very quick to make’ card into the ring for Cath’s Moxie Fab ‘Type Hype’ challenge
Here’s the trigger picture

Cute– huh.

and my take is fairly simple. No amazing originality and no stamping ( sorry). Not sure why I feel the need to apologise it’s not stamped. Will the stamping police come and get me?!! I hadn’t any typewriter stash at all. So I just pulled one off the web and raised it up a little. It already had the ‘letter’ bit on it so I just filled it. I also had to use my fave font ever ‘American Typewriter’!!

I feel like Mrs Tiggy-winkle from Beatrix Potter’s book. You know, the old hedgehog washerwoman!! My washing machine and I are extremely good friends. I tell it- please do your stuff with no frills and you’re welcome to live here for as long as you like. It needs some attention really. Think it needs a high cycle with bleach. It’s getting really hammered particularly since the returnee arrived back home with 9 days worth of less than clean washing. Surprisingly it hadn’t just been dirtied by her- some of her recently acquired friends had also helped with the process. What is that about. I don’t think I ever borrowed my friends clothes to wear on camp. I, however would have drawn the line with socks. They were even sharing them ( and after they’d been worn!). Awww, the things we do for our friends!!

See you tomorrow ( perhaps I have another layout lurking !) when hopefully I’ll have got rid of all of the washing xx

    Wow, I so love this, Keren! The placements of elements and colors are spot on. This is exactly my type (sorry…I can’t help it–heehee) of card! Enjoy your washing machine 😉

    HAHAHA Keren…Always a good story on your blog. I too (heart) anything that makes being a mama easier. No domestic goddess living in my home…lol! The card is a winner, stamping or no stamping 🙂

    Great card, Keren, wish I though of going out on-line for a cute little typewriter like you found!
    PS: funny story about the “returnee” sharing clothes AND socks 🙂

    Fantastic card Keren! At first I thought “ewww” about the socks~the Lord reminded me that I have (on more than one occasion) stripped off my socks to hand over to one of my girlies (who forgot to wear them to dance). Only a mother would do that (walk barefoot in her shoes)~or so I thought. Sweet friends! 😉

    Yeah for you!! A well deserved win on this delightful card!
