Dum, dum, de, dum!


The weekend starts here Fluffers, with this fantabulous sketch from Jo at Sketch Saturday:


Now, you may remember a while back, I was looking for this stamp and I couldn't find it. Anywhere. The Bat Cave looks chaotic, but, I know where everything is (AKA should be).

We've been watching re-runs of Friends recently. My (excessive) OCD Tendencies are common knowledge amongst my friends and family and I'm often likened to Monica. (Very Understanding Hubby even mentioned it in his wedding speech!) Actually, she's quite calm compared to me. But anyway. In this particular episode, there's a locked cupboard and Chandler isn't allowed to look in it, which of course, means he wants to look in it even more. He eventually gets inside and the cupboard is a mess! It's like my house! Everything has a certain place. Everything needs to be in that certain place. It's tidy and organised. (I am calm because of this existence, which makes me a nightmare to live with, but I am calm.) Apart from my Bat Cave! I've often said The Bat Cave is me rebelling against myself!


Anyway, it upsets me when I can't find things, so I was really happy when Georgie sent this stamp to me in the post. I'd lent it to her and we'd both forgotten. (And I know it's mine, rather than a replacement, because it has my catalogue indexing on it!!) Happy Days!

I had a lovely afternoon making this card, right up until the point I couldn't find my sentiment stamp... Note, I found it eventually. I wish I could say there were no Fluffies harmed in the production of this card!

It's FABULOUS! So love your paper choices because they are unusual - it's kind of Utility meets Cute and Cottagey. Lovely colouring and perfect interpretation of the sketch. Great cutting out too! I find it too hard to leave a decent margin. Hugs, Lesley

Lol - I remember this episode too! You have to be able to rebel. It is the other way around for me though, the house is a mess and I have one tidy cupboard (somewhere)!

Glad that I returned this stamp, as you have made an absolutely stunning card with it - I love it :-)
