Exercise anyone?

I have had a hectic day, so thought I would share this card - well it made me smile when I was making it! The pink punched piece on the right is an EK Success border punch, and I cut a strip of the diamonds from the pattern paper to layer on top of it.  


 My friend Carol in Florida bought me the stamps - they made us laugh!



Here is why I am a bit frazzled - a work in progress - can you see any clothes in these suitcases? No, not a Tshirt to be seen, just paper, and inks, and all manner of stuff I just can't manage without, and can't afford to duplicate, like Nestabilities, embossing folders, distress inks. Then there is all my Craftwork Cards stuff, my Polkadoodles CD's, my new Kanban stuff..........I have a lot of the basics in both places, but it's all those extras (multiplied when I came back because of the spending spree I will have with coupons at Michaels and Jo-anns!)


I guess I may be able to squeeze some undies and a toothbrush in.


See you tomorrow x

I so agree with your card. If worse comes to worse here in the US we have Good Will stores. People donate clothes, housewares and such and they sell them cheap to make money for some of their other projects. I have found really nice designer labels for cheap cheap. You have to look for spots and such but it makes for an interesting scavanger hunt. I see all sorts of people from well to do to really down on their luck in there. Just think of the tales you will have to tell us about.

Oh my gosh, Enfys!

That card should come with a drink alert - I almost spit my tea (still morning here) all over my computer!

As far as clothes, oh darn, guess you'll just have to shop when you get here!

Safe travels,
Donna

It's so hot in Florida all you need are a couple pair of shorts and a couple tees and you're all set for clothes. Save the suitcases for the important stuff like your craft things. I sure don't envy your packing.

Katina said...

Lol, fab card Enfys!

Sarah said...

Duplicate the clothes! Leave some here so you don't have to pack them, then you can stay focused on the important stuff!

Debbie said...

Love the card. Have some people to send it to ;- ) I also love you packing mentality. Glad I don't live between two places, esp. if I had to fly >.< Maybe a container ship!

Linda said...

Who needs clothes when you have crafting supplies. Didn't you say you will have a ton of boxes from Blitsy when you get to FL from before they shipped to the UK? LOL Backing is the pits.
Love the card and the sentiment is sooooo true. LOL

Kristie Maynard said...

Great card. Sure gave me a smile. Don't you wish you could just duplicate everything? It would make traveling so much easier for you.

How fortunate to have such problems, lol.

Clothes are over-rated, Enfys ;p especially in scorching Florida!

Love that sentiment on the card - too funny!

Have a safe flight!

I'm just realizing that you are coming to Florida for SUMMER not winter! You are a brave woman! I had to laugh at the suitcases - thankfully you don't need many clothes. :-)
