You Bring Out the Happy in Me!

Pin It

Oh, yes, you do!! So, big, happy, Thursday hellos, and a very happy National Hug Day to you!

Today's card was created for SCS's "Clean and Simple" challenge, CAS18. This week's challenge is a color challenge: pink/coral, kraft, and one other color of your choice. I, obviously, chose New England Ivy green. Not to be confused with Southwest Ivy green ... or Deep South Ivy green. Geez, who names these ink pads? Wouldn't a simple "Ivy Green" suffice?

For all the challenging deets, clicky HERE. To go straight to the CAS18 card gallery, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky there on the photo.

This card couldn't been any simpler ... cleaner maybe, but not simpler! For all the breath-taking product info, check out the supply list, below.

Sooooooooooooo, I was babysitting with Reid-the-Wild-Child the other night and he startled me by asking, "So, Auntie, where does poo come from?"

"Yikes! Can't you ask your Mother these kinda questions?" I responded.

"She'll just make something up; you'll tell me the truth."

"I'll do my best ... okay, so you know what you ate for dinner tonight?" I started.

"Yup." Reid answered.

"Wellllllll, the food goes into our tummies and our bodies take out all the good stuff, and then whatever is left over comes out of our bottoms when we go to the toilet ... and that is poo." I expertly explained.

Reid-the-Wild-Child looked perplexed and stared at me in stunned silence for a few seconds ... then asked, "And Tigger?"

Oh Deb! I needed to laugh this morning - especially!!! Thank you so much! Sounds like something I would try to explain (and find myself answering the wrong question!).

You card is so cute! I need to try the lattice on the bottom trick - that is so elegant - just the right touch! Man-o-man I've missed you. It was only a month or so, right? It seems SO long!
