Special Request

My Aunt had a knee replacement a couple days ago and while she is recouping my cousin is doing her laundry so my mom asked for this particular card. I bought these stamps years ago when I first started stamping and when my mom had hip replacement a few years back I made a similar card for her because my dad was going to be doing the laundry. Now, in our house, hubs does most of the laundry, so if he ever gets laid up, I may have to make one of these for him! LOL!!!!

Anyhow, the stamps are from Stampouri and each one is individual. You sort of make your own scene. I also have some little stuffed animals that could be hung on the clothesline to dry. So, it's not a quickie card, that's for sure, it requires some thought on where you are going to place the images, what you will mask, etc. I stamped this in versafine and used my prisma pencils and gamsol for the colouring.

Inside, the sentiment is computer generated (the same thing I put in my mom's card way back) and I decided to edge the lining with my martha punch. I like to add liners to my cards, and usually stamp something simple on the inside. However, after an hour of colouring I didn't want to look at another stamp so I opted for the lace edge instead.
On another note....I just wanted to say WOW...thanks for all the wonderful comments on my white space card! And here I was afraid I might bore you all.

And don't forget to play along with Bellarific Friday. You can check this post on Emily's blog for this weeks color challenge. It's a yummy one and soooooo springy!!! And OH MY!!!!!!!!! when i scooted over there to get the link I see she has a sneak peek posted...must go see!

Terrific card. Your colouring and colours you chose are perfect. Reminds me of my Grandma's clothes line. Awesome card.

OMG, this is amazing! I LOVE those stamps and would love to track them down, if they are old there probably isn't any chance for that, but they sure are cute. Beautiful coloring as always!!

Hi Linda - great colouring - can you pass some of that talent along to me. What a cute card - love how you added that little bow to the side. Can't wait til the weather gets nice so we can hang our laundry outside again.

That is such a clever get well card, although I am not sure anyone wants to get well to do laundry. I have to laugh at Paula and all her comments to you :-))
