"L" is for Layer at SOSS

Ok, so I read the "L" is for Layer at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and think "WOOHOO!  Do I know how to layer!" but uh...no, not layerS, LAYER, meaning ONE (or if you must, because you are worried about f'ing up your card base, 2 at the MOST).   In other words CAS, not my strong suit.

However, if Edna (my Mom's name, which totally cracks me up, however she does look more like my Auntie Lee) can go flat, so can I.  So above you see my one layer card, done in Printmaster Platinum, using eyeglasses from The Graphics Fairy, that went perfectly with the sentiment I saw somewhere on the net and wrote down because I'm sure in a few years that will be me, and also because they look a bit like Edna's.  WOW!  How's that for a run on sentence?  I'm in rare form today, eh? Well, Edna snuck on the corner of my card (my Mom was pushy like that too) but was really pissed when I left her colorless (but Copics would have bled through my CS 'cause I use the cheap stuff).

Visit Sister Lee (aka Violent Kitty) to grab your own Flat Edna.  Mine insisted on some color and posing with the card.  (See, I told you, PUSHY!)  In case you're trying to read it on one of those itty bitty smart phones it says:"God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference."  AMEN!

Since coloring took up the better part of my morning, I skipped my walk, so Edna, always the taskmaster, put me through my paces in the exercise room.  First the elliptical trainer.
Then chest, back and shoulders on the weight stack.

And finally, dumbells for biceps and triceps.

Phew!  Time for some liquid refreshment.  Red or white?

Red it is!  Tah!


  1. Oh how I love this! The card, your Edna, your entire post! That sentiment is utterly brilliant. And your Edna looks perfectly divine! Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

  4. Oh that Edna...she's a saucy lass! Love that she put you through the paces then ended up where she always does - with a bottle of wine!
    I adore the sentiment on your card and that Edna did a cardbomb (is that a thing?? like a photobomb??) in the corner.
    Thanks for coming back to play with the snarky sisters and giving us a good giggle with your card and your post :)
