Today's the first Clear it out Challenge day and the theme is : Thank you, use buttons
My image is a character called Gertrude by the challenge sponsors Bugaboo Stamps. You can find Grumpy Gertrude fake plants here .
So there is a bit of background to this card design but I'll save that to the end
When we were waiting for our house to be build we stayed with my father in law. Actually he moved out so we could move in. He thought that would be the easiest for us since we had two very small children.
In addition to taking care of the children I was learning how to use an accounting program to further my career. I kept the house up (just the basics) but in doing so I totally forgot to water the plants. Like never. SO wasn't my father in law surprised when he came back. He asked me how often I watered them (assuming I OVER watered them) It never dawned on me that they were real plants-lol.
When I saw this digi I thought this would be the perfect card to send to my father in law as a thank you for having us at Christmas. I think he'll get quite the chuckle ;)
Thanks for stopping by. Please remember the challenge is weekly now so you have until Monday night to enter~good luck!
