Sunday - OWH Sketch time


My twisted version of this week's sketch from Operation Write Home's card blog - Stars and Stamps.  As I was going through my Silhouette files - the mustache jumped out at me as a border so I went the masculine route on my card.  I think it will bring a smile to someone's face.

As I was doing this - I was thinking about other uses for the mustache - and came up with the idea of a mustache for a retirement card - retirement - now you have time to sit back and watch your hair grow - or for a woman - gee retirement - you no longer have to worry about your mustache and plucking it.

OK - enough warped sense of humor - I guess I need to drink another cup of coffee.

Barb, you certainly brought a smile to my face and I love your thoughts on retirement cards with mustaches. Good thinking!!! All we need is a jumping off spot and I like the direction you jumped in.

It's always fun to see a new sketch, then immediately scroll down to see what you've done with it. Often I get great inspiration. This time I got a big laugh that woke up my dog. Great job of making it your own!!!
