Then a couple of weeks ago we bought a 2006 FORD FREESTAR. One week later the transmission went out. My first thought was: LEMON. Fortunately the dealership put a used transmission (only 40,000 miles) in it at no charge to us. I picked it up yesterday morning. Drove it to work and it drove like a dream. YAY!!!!
Guess where my van is now? In the shop of course. When I left work yesterday to come home - NO TRANSMISSION!!!! Can you even believe this??? Can YOU say LEMON????
So, what's a stamping girl to do when life gives her lemons? That's right - go shopping and buy more stamps!!!! LOL! I remembered seeing this House Mouse stamp at my local craft store and it was so completely perfect for the way I've been feeling lately, I had to have it. So off I went in my "loaner" van to make my purchase.
The yellow polka-dot paper is from Hobby Lobby. I added Only Orange dots around the white polka dots and Old Olive dots to the centers of the polka dots as well as around the white mat. The green and orange designer papers are from Stampin'Up! I used Prisma pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS) to color the image. Crystal Effects was added to make the glass appear "glassy" and once dry I cut out the image and poppep it up on dimensionals. The flower is 2 seperate pieces held together with a glittery green brad and held in place on a piece of yellow polka dot ribbon with a large glue dot.
I haven't added a greeting to the inside yet - I thought about the traditional "when life gives you lemons" saying but then also thought I could start it out that way and end it with "Pucker Up!" Any ideas out there???
Thanks for "listening" and being my sounding board today.
Until tomorrow -
