Hey! Who Wants a Sandwich?

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, race fans!

Today's card project was created for SCS's Sketch Challenge, SC264. For all the challenging deets, including a look at the sketch I followed, clicky HERE. To go straight to the SC264 card gallery, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky anywhere on the photo.

I used digital files to create the patterned paper on this card and a font-a-licious rubber stamp that my BFF sent me long-time-ago.

For the rest of the exciting product info, check out the supply list, below.

Soooooooo, on Saturday night, Sheila and I, together with our respective DH's, went to a l'il meet and greet at Jill's. For irregular readers of my blog ... and you know who you are ... Jill is Sheila's psychotic younger sister.

When we last left Jill, it was on the heels of her infamous "Rolls Royce" date. Since that 'terrible' night, she's been seeing Jack. According to Jill, Jack is very bright, terribly funny, and drop-dead gorgeous. All this, PLUS he has the soul of a poet ... and miracle of miracles, the guy actually has a job!

On Saturday night we were summoned to Jill's to meet Jack ... you know, 'cuz he might be The One. Tee, hee ... Jack and Jill; now that's poetic!

We arrived and after the obligatory air kisses, introductions, and cold drinks, Sheila and I were dragged into a corner by Jill.

"What do you think, isn't he dreamy?!?"

"Oh, dreamy. Just dreamy." Sheila replied.

"So, please, would you two go talk to him and make him feel welcome? The guys are kinda ignoring him."

So Sheila and I engaged Dreamy Jack in small talk. After the "whaddya do, who do ya know's," the conversation lagged for a bit. But Dreamy Jack grabbed the ball and ran with it:

"So. Ladies, has this ever happened to you? You're like hungry, so you make a sandwich. And then, ya know, you get tired, so you put the sandwich down in front of you and then you put your head down and like, fall asleep."

"And then, when you wake up, the sandwich is like stuck to your forehead, but you're so out of it that you don't realize it. So, then, you like, go make yourself another sandwich."

We both just stood there, dumbstruck.

"Yeah," he continued. "I go through bread like crazy."

And at that very moment, Jill called from the kitchen, "Hey! Who wants a sandwich?"


Thanks for stopping by today! May all your sandwiches be headless ... and vice versa.
