I'll try to be nicer....


I saw this funny Bugaboo image and knew I had to make it into a card for my dear friend Janet. She works for H&R Block (a tax preparation company) and I know that as the April 15th tax deadline draws closer, she must be thinking something similar several times a day LOL!  Janet has this beautiful head of grey hair (very premature grey I must add)  so here she is, in all her glory.

I stuck the paper clips on the ribbon with crystal effects and also added some on Stella's glasses.

I used  this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I tell you, this is one friendly group of stampers...you must give their challenge a try!

I hope you enjoyed a little of my "sarcastic" side...these digi's  just tickle me. I have several more to work up so watch for them in the future!

This is one great card, and I'd like to send one to every company rep who answers the phone and has no clue how to resolve a problem!! It seems to happen more often than not! LOL

OMG!!! This is sooooo cute!! I love the paper clip border!! I used this image for one a project for one of my friends that just needs some finishing touches before I give it to her. Used the digi to make it much bigger and colored it up to frame for her "space." I could just picture my friend saying this...she is not known for her tact, but those of us who know her, know she has one of the biggest hearts out there disguised by her sassy remarks! Thanks for sharing this cutie...I love it!!!
