When Your Dreams Turn to Dust

I've mentioned that my big stamp club does a mystery challenge item card every month where you agree to make a card with the mystery item before you know what it is.  Sometimes they are really challenging and other times just plain fun.  This was a fun one.
The mysterious item was the hunk of lace, which immediately made me think of aprons and this dude.  My original plan was to have the hunk of lace sticking out more at the one and two o'clock position but then I went and stuck all the red line tape across the top, so that's where the lace ended up.

The inside greeting is a fun stamp a friend gave me once.  It reads: When your dreams turn to dust, vacuum.

The Fine Print: Vacuuming dude by Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers, designer paper by Making Memories and hunk of lace from someone else's stash.

OMG! I think that with THAT image, I've now "seen it all" in the stamp world. I mean, WHO KNEW that a cross dressing male wielding a vacuum cleaner would sell? Who????

Fun card PJ!

And going back to your previous post . . . I have the answer to finding more craft time, losing the commute AND regaining your lunchbreak . . . . GIVE UP WORK!

Hugs, Sarn xxx
