Gettin' Down and Dotty ... a 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Happy Tuesday and happy "National Anthem" day. If you're interested in knowing what version of the National Anthem I love-a-bunch, click HERE. It'll give you the chills, baby, the c-h-i-l-l-s!

ONward H-C-M's:

Today's 15 Minute Project was created for Splitcoast Stampers new "Clean and Simple" challenge. This weeks challenge, CAS04, "Accenting with Dots," called for a clean and simple card ... and, not surprisingly, dots! For all the challenge deets, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of this card, clicky on the photo.

I stamped my dotted border stamp on Stamper's Select card stock with Pacific Point dye ink, stamped my sentiment with the same ink, and added a dotted Prima flower, a Pacific Point blue flower punchie, and a Pacific Point blue brad. Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

BAWDY ALERT! The following Sheila story contains adult language and may not be suitable for children, small pets, or linguists:

Sooooo, this weekend the DH and I had dinner with Sheila and her family.

We knew going in that Sheila was cooking venison, but they had decided not to tell Reid-the-Wild-Child, what kind of meat it was ... 'cuz he loves Bambi and all. However, if he guessed correctly they would be honest with him.

Naturally, the l'il bugger was eager to know what kind of meat was on his plate, so he begged Sheila's DH, Ken, for a clue.

"Well," Ken said, "It's what Mommy calls me sometimes."

Reid-the-Wild-Child grabbed my arm and screamed, "Don't eat it, Aunty, it's an asshole!"

I. Kid. You. Not.
