Hello fellow crafters out there!
I have some wonderful news to share.
I was recently selected by the amazing women at
Make It Monday
to be part of their DT team.
I'd just like to say THANK YOU to all you wonderful ladies
and I do hope that I can keep up with all your amazing talent.
Okay, on to the business of the day...
My DT Card...
I'm 40+ and to this day, I'm still asked by my aunt,
"Do you remember what you said while I was walking down the aisle to be married?"
My response is always, "LOL...yes, I yelled out,
'Something's wrong with my bottom!'"
(Piano player screeched to a halt since she couldn't be heard over the laughter and my aunt, after coming over and hugging me, had to do a "re-do" entry) Ahh, good times.
While making this card with all the little ruffles, it reminded me of when I was little and my family seemed to be obsessed with dressing me in ruffled, foo-foo, underpants.
Horrific fashion faux pas, in my opinion.
However, it does inspire me to make a polyester argyle card as well...
but that's a different traumatic childhood memory for another time.
SO, today at
We are hosting another challenge with many unique and wonderful DT inspiration cards
of all shapes, sizes and variations!

Way to go Wendy!
Isn't this amazing???? Yes, yes it is!
I find your card completely inspiring and the scenery is absolutely original
and so uniquely creative!
Well done :)
Ruffled Bum (sorta) Side View
I didn't have any blue tulle, so I dissected a blue paper rose and cut the petals into sections and placed them around the edge to have a "tulle" type of appearance.
You know, this cute little image, Peekaboo,
from Karen's Doodles, has really grown on me.
Even though I may not have enjoyed the experience of sporting all those ruffles around,
this little ballerina in her tutu is just too precious!
I can only imagine that my family felt the same way about me
and I'm pretty sure that I spent quite a bit of time in the exact same pose going,
Thanks SO much for stopping by my blog today and I hope that you've found yourself inspired.
It would also be comforting and fun,
if when you left a message,
you could share a childhood memory along the same lines.
I know I'd love to read them and I'm sure the other readers would love a giggle as well.
Take care all and happy stamping!
