The Old Sot

Outside
One of Squigglefly's recent releases includes The Old Sot by artist Lynne Stansbery and I personally share her attitude when it comes to housework! If I absolutely must undertake any form of housekeeping, I look for an excuse not to or take the easiest possible way to get it done. One of the tools I have in my arsenal of cleaning supplies is a hairdryer. Turn it on, aim in the direction of the dust and call it dusted!  


Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals are providing the inspiration for Squigglefly's challenge that starts today. It's a recipe challenge calling for the use of ribbon or twine, glitter or something sparkly and a brad somewhere on your card. I got all three elements but you have to look close for the glitter, it's the pimentos inside the three brads a/k/a olives at the bottom of the card. 


Hope you take a look at what Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals have created and then play along. We all know, you can't win if you don't play!

  15. oh is that ever funny! and great advice. hubby always said... if you want something done, give it to the LAZIEST person because they're sure to find a way to get it done QUICKLY!

    fortunately, it's ONLY me. no kids, no pets. i think my craft room is the messiest room in the house - and jade's room, but that's her stuff. i don't touch it. if i did... it would be in the car for GOODWILL!!!

    hugs :)
