Call the exterminator...

They KEEP getting in!

What's a girl to do!?! - Oh, I have an idea! I'm gonna MAKE stuff!
That ALWAYS cures what ails me. And JUST US GIRLS have a super
sketch for this week - the PERFECT way to craft away your troubles...

Okay...... NOT that I mind having my children around.... REALLY! They are
actually kind of adorable, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep them... {doh!}
But EVERY time I see a poster with this sentiment, it ALWAYS makes me burst
out laughing! So, after contemplating these darling card stock stickers from
October Afternoon for FAR too long, I decided to have fun with this sentiment.
So, until I can get my hands on a STAMP with this, unique observation, I HAD to go
HYBRID! {I know!} - Printed this baby right off my computer, with a fun font
from WAY back in the day - Typewriter by LISA BEARNSON! - Seriously, I LOVE
her font CDs. I have... uhm, several, *cough!* {HOARDER!} ... Anywhoo!

CAN you see the possibility! ISN'T this a beaut! - It's brought to you, following
a world tour, by our beloved, Pam! {Notice, I resisted calling her "Pammy-cakes!"}
WELCOME back, dear girl! WHAT a fabulous summer THAT gal has been having!
But whether or not she's typing with an Australian accent, we're hanging on EVERY
word - BECAUSE WE MISSED HER LIKE CRAZY! How fabulous that she's busting
through the welcome home signs, and out the chute with a SUPER fun sketch!

CHECK out my pals, the GIRLS, my craftiest cohorts of fun and inspiration...


Much, much, MUCH inspiration to be had, this week, my lovely
friends! Won't you PLAY with us? We'll bake you a little something!

Did I say "bake"?

Silly me.

We've got inspiration a-plenty! Hope to see you there!

This is so adorable! Love your blog too. I was looking for the feedbiz on your side bar but did not find any :( The best way for me to visit all my fav blogs is to have them dump in my email each day, lol.

Oh goodness - I laughed right out loud when I read this senti - great thought even though it was very tongue-in-cheek! I love your retro flair - I can't even begin to work with the retro looks cause it's too close to my childhood LOL You whipped up this beauty and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your new blog header! The winking, smiling cow just made me smile and giggle. THanks for a rockin' awesome job with the sketch and your very sweet comments = I missed all of you gals and am SO impressed with all of your works. NOT just for JUGS but overall you are an amazing group of paper crafting women and I'm glad to be a part. HUGS to you Mamacow!

I am rolling on the floor laughing! Love this card with the retro OA stickers.

Andrea M said...

BAAAHHHHH!!! This is so clever!!! I LOVE the retro look of this card!!! It reminds me of a t-shirt I had when I was younger - it had a pic of two, retro-looking ladies conversing. One woman has a speech ballon that contains "He said we had to chose him or the animals…. we miss him sometimes.." He He!!! Love that kinda humor!!! Thanks for making me laugh, sweet lady!!! Great take on the sketch!

Dana Gustafson said...

Hee hee! Good one mamacow! You KNOW how much I am loving this card with retro mama and her perfect little cherubs! Very apt I'd say!

Carol L said...

This little card is so much fun, and I know I heard that sentiment spoken many times by a famous comedienne, but I can't recall who it was right now. I'm thinking it was that lady who used to write for Good Housekeeping mag many moons ago. It's really funny to see it again after so many years! Great card with great vintage images!

This looks like it was fun to make. A great "out-of-the-box" choice.
