Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at MFT Color.

This card will need an explanation.  My Mom has a great bunch of friends at her Assisted Living place.  They all get along so well, 6 woman at one table.  The Head Chef is Charlie, and Charlie is FUN!  The girls love giving him a hard time and he gives it right back.  This card is for Charlie's birthday.  My Mom wanted something fun and sassy!   They make Charlie work for his money.  When he serves them there is always one more thing that they would like.....mostly sour cream and tartar sauce.   Of course I do not own any stamps that say forgive me my chicken scratch! 
The girls will love this and I am sure Charlie will get them all back for it.

The stamp set is by Art Impressions, Gossip.  Aren't they fabulous?   Designer paper by Cloud 9 Designs, Wild Indigo.  Image colored with Copic Markers and lots of Sakura Glitter pens to add a sparkly accent.  Eyelets in red and blue and ribbons.  MFT Blueprints #12 Banner die.   


May Charlie never forget their condiments again.  lol
Thank you so much for coming by.  Have a wonderful day!


  1. OMG!! this is FANTASTIC!! The "girls" need to keep Charlie on his toes and he is going to love this card. BTW; I would have used the computer for the sentiment because no one could make out my chicken scratch lol Ya gotta love those Art Impression gals

  2. My favorite kind of card is one that tells a story. This is too funny and so very creative. Love what you have done for MOM. Charlie will truly love this special card made with love. No where can you buy one like this. Art Impressions has wonderful images, but when you put a story with them.......Priceless!

  3. Oh my gosh - CHARLIE!!!! He is gonna LOVE THIS!!! You clever girl, love that you wrote out the greeting and sentiment. Why not, right? These Art Impressions divas are becoming classics, love them all. I'm sure your mom can't wait to give this to him!!!

  4. I love your card and thanks for the story behind the creation of it too! I am sure the girls and Charlie will be well pleased and get some good laughs too!

  5. This is hilarious! Too funny. Thanks for joining us for the MFT Color Challenge this week!

  6. Oh, how much fun is this. I can just picture the smile on Charlie's face. this will make him feel very special. I have discovered that many men are very sentimental about the cards that are made for them. I am sure your Mom feel special too because you took the time to do this for her. You are a good daughter. By the way, I love this card.

  7. Yes, this stamp set is fabulous for sure! Charlie will definitely get a kick out of this! Have a Blessed day!

  8. What an awesome story, Donna! My parents just moved into an assisted living place in November, and they have lots of tales to tell about the dining room. The head chef at their place used to be my dad's student!

  9. What a fun card and story! Sounds like they have a lot of fun there. Love the Art Impressions funny!
