Today I continue on my training class. Yesterday was pretty good. It's an Access database class. Covering the basics. Only Windows could manage to make something so complicated! I'd hate to see what the advanced classes cover. :-) (And I WILL be seeing what they cover next month.) It's just so much easier to write an SQL query and not deal with all the 'touchy feely' stuff that makes it "user friendly".

Anyways, before I head over to class, I'm going to drop by work and hand these out. I'm hoping I counted right (was going from memory of where everyone sits). If I was smart I would have brought home a phone list or something.

Half the men there don't eat junk food - so if I miscounted it shouldn't be a big deal. I got the cups at the $1 store (as well as the candy). I had the clear plastic "mug shrink bags" left over from my gift basket business. I didn't shrink them though (I just taped the bottoms tighter around the cups). The tag stamp is from SU. The part that took the longest was bagging them up so they still looked decent.

I still don't know what we are doing for halloween tonight. My oldest is going to be a pirate. A very cute pirate :-). The youngest one wants to be some guy from Lord of the Rings. My husband is in charge of the costume but I have NO idea how he's going to manage to make my son look like the guy. Usually we just go trick or treating around the neighborhood. Not sure if that's the plan for tonight or not. They are also having a party at the firestation, one at the park, and one at the mall. So we might choose to do one of those instead (or in addition to).

Have a great day!

Best Friend Scrapbook Pages

I decided I better get my butt in gear and get started on my Design Team project that is due on Friday. It's a 10 page 4x6 album...and I got the first two pages done last night (whoo hooo). Let's just say that speed is not one of my traits when it comes to papercrafting. Everything has to be JUST SO. But I do like how they turned out. Now just 8 more pages to go before Friday! ;-)

You can click on the photo to see it larger. MOST everything is paper here. The quote is cut from one sheet of the paper they gave me. The only stamping is the flourishes.

Once they display the album at the store for awhile then I get to have it back (my tiny payment). So I thought I'd make this a friendship album and then I'll have something done as a Christmas gift. I'm starting to stress about Christmas...I don't have any presents bought...only a couple made...and we're broke! Yikes.

I also found out yesterday that they are planning on moving our offices...even FURTHER from our house. Well, closer North/Southwise...but further East/West wise. And there is no East/West interstate and it's just going to make my drive even yuckier than it already is. Something will have to change (I'm hoping at some point maybe they'll let me go to 4 10s or work from home a couple days a week. Right now I'm just learning all I can and making myself trustworthy so they'll want to keep me and trust me to work PT from home.)

Have a great day all!

Happy Monday!

So, how was your weekend? Mine was good but way too short. How is it, exactly, that 2 week days feel so much longer than 2 weekEND days? I swear they are about 8 hours shorter each day! LOL.

Saturday I went up to Phoenix to my brothers' house. We had a family meeting to cover a couple things. Still working on my Dad's estate (probably something that we'll be working on for another several years) and also starting plans for the family reunion. We are in charge of the next one. (We hold them every three years.) I would love to hear about YOUR family reunions and all their details. Any suggestions of activities or fundraisers?

Sunday I went to a "stamp a stack". We made 16 cards...4 each of 4 designs. So I'll have those to share later this week. It's still dark right now so I couldn't get a good photo if I tried. But by tomorrow my artwork should be back! Although...if she designed the it MY artwork? Hmmm. Anyways, they are very cute cards.

I also made some halloween goodies for my coworkers so I will share a picture of that as well later this week. So good things to come.

Hope everyone has a happy Monday and I'll see you tomorrow!

Finally a Card to share!

Well, I didn't say it was a card from ME! But it is a card. My "little" one (who is now 7) made this card. One day when I was stamping he HAD to come stamp RIGHT next to mommy. After he finished his creation he told me he wanted me to post it on the internet (when do these kids get so savvy?).

So without further ado is Dakota's creation:



The hippo stamp is one I bought from Art Gone Wild...and honestly I don't think I'll be purchasing from them again. The rubber isn't cut deep enough and it's impossible to get the stamp inked completely withOUT getting ink in the middle of his nose. I've had a horrible time using this stamp myself.

Notice the embellishments (pennies) and on the inside the strips of paper at the bottom. And then there is the message...totally written on his own. It says "I Love Mom and Miss Franck". (No, this isn't a guilt trip for "Miss Franck" to stay and teach him next year...I swear!)

Kids amaze me. Even though they drive me CRAZY at times...I'm so glad I have my boys.


Friday, October 26, 2007

And I thought I was bad!

Look at THIS!

How can you even come close to justifying THAT many stamps?



Thursday, October 25, 2007


Just a quick update. Went to the doctor and she determined it's a sty. (or is that stye?) Anyways...picked up my prescription for eyedrops and now I'm off to bed with a hot compress. She said hopefully that'll clear it up, but if not I'd have to go to a opthmologist and have it lanced. Ewww and scary (I don't want them lancing ANYTHING near my eye!) Regardless...probably won't have a whole lot of new artwork to share for a few days. I'll see what I can dig up from my scrapbooks.

On a different note...I lost 5.6 pounds this week! Well, actually over the last two weeks (I didn't go to my Weight Watcher's meeting last week.) I'm pretty excited about that. It feels like it's taking forever for the weight to come off this time. I know I'm not trying as hard as I could be...but it's hard when I'm at work with junk food freely available and people bringing in donuts and cakes, etc. I also am often gone for 10-12 hours a day so any exercising I do I have to fit in during work hours. I've started trying to go for walks a few times a week. It's a nice break to my day...especially if I can drag a coworker along for company.

Anyways, that's my update for tonight. Off to bed!



Something is going on with my eye. It started two days ago. Hurting in the corner of the eye when I blink. By yesterday it hurt when I blinked or put any pressure on the inner part of the eye. I came home from work (after staring at a computer all day) and put hot compresses on it and was asleep by 8:30. Today the eyelid is swollen and the bottom rim (where the eyelashes are) seems darker. Hopefully my doctor can fit me in today.

So, no artwork to share today. (Unless you want to take a picture of my eyeball! LOL!)

Have a great day everyone.

Happy Hump Day!

Good morning! At least hopefully it's going to be a good morning...I'm going to have faith that it's going to

My eye is killing me this morning. It started hurting yesterday. I'm not sure what's up with it. The corner of the eye feels like someone is poking/pushing it with a pencil lead every time I blink. It also feels the same way any time the eye is closed or pressure is placed on it. I'm hoping it goes away on it's own...but if not soon then I'll have to schedule a doctors visit. Don't want to mess around with my eyes!

I'm running out of cards to share (since I didn't make as many this weekend). I'm sure I can find some scrapbook pages to share though that you haven't seen. So, without further's my last card for this week. It was made for sketch challenge #146 on Splitcoastampers. It uses 2 background stamps from Stampin Up, the main image (penguin) is from Memory Box, and th saying is from Hero Arts (these should look familiar from a card I posted a few days ago). Not sure I like this card a whole lot...but it sure is patriotic! ;-)

Have a great day...we're half way through the work week! What do YOU have planned for the weekend?

Thinking of You Card

Love how this simple card turned out. Once again, it's a sketch from Angel's blog. The only stamp it uses is a $1 stamp from Michael's that I'd bought and was still a inkless virgin. It's been laid by the inkpad now. :-)

It's a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card. I paper pierced all around the outside of the kraft cardstock. Layered on a piece of decorative paper. Stamped my greeting on white and layered on kraft. I stapled it (just those two layers because I did't want my staples to go all the way through the card front) and attached the greeting layer. Then tied on my ribbons and wa la...done!

Have a wonderful Tuesday.

Thanks Snow Much!

I LOVE how this card turned out. Very simple, very linear....right up my alley! LOL.

The dots are a stamp from CTMH. It's from a set called Simple Stitches. All other stamps are from Stampin' Up.

I got the sketch for the challenge from here. If you like sketches, go check out her blog!



Be Happy Every Day Penguin

Yesterday I managed to make 4 new cards...and I like all of that makes it a good stamping day. I made two cards using the same stamps - but different colors and designs. So I thought I'd start with one of those.

This card uses my new Memory Box Penguin and the saying is from Hero Arts. It's one long saying...but I just inked up part of it and stamped and then did the other portion. I got the card sketch from Beate's weekend challenge

Sometimes I have REAL issues following sketches. I'm not good at partial layers and this one drove me NUTS to do. I tried several types/colors of papers for that area to the left of the image. Couldn't find anything I liked. The ribbon was the closest I could come and still be able to live with my final choice. I'm one of those people who like everything equidistant and centered! LOL.

Thanks for Your Support

I'm going to attempt to add a new picture here. Yesterday it was a blogger issue. Then yesterday my DH messed with our computer and apparently all my pictures were lost (as well as some software that will need to be I don't have my regular photo editing software right now).

So, I'm saying, forgive me up front in case the photos come out huge or tiny. I'll get dh to fix it when he gets home but I wanted to go ahead and post something for now. The card design is a sketch from Angelosity's blog. So...without further's a new card!

The bra stamp and saying are from Gina K Designs. The circle background is from Cornish Heritage Farms (they have great backgrounds among other things). I pierced around the circle that holds the sentiment. I also added some stickles glitter glue to the frills on the bra.

And on the note of new stamps...I thought I'd show my newest additions! SCS is such a BAD INFLUENCE when it comes to spending money. They always tell you of all the sales going on. And it's hard to pass up a good sale! These stamps came from a company that was going out of business. Everything was 40% off. I couldn't pass up my Memory Box Penguins at 40% off! I bought the rhinestones thinking they'd be smaller. Does anyone know where to get LITTLE rhinestones? I want them for the centers of flowers, etc. And the Roadrunner Stamp is actually a different purchase. My kids go to "Roadrunner Elementary" and I've been wanting a Roadrunner stamp forever. I asked at a small store about an hour from here and they said they could order one for me and have it shipped. So, I paid full price for him...but hopefully I'll get lots of use out of him. He's made by Copper Leaf Creations.

Ok...guess I need to go make the kids breakfast and get the day started. I'll try to work on some new stuff this weekend!


Friday, October 19, 2007


I can't get Blogger to cooperate this morning. It doesn't want to let me upload photos. So I guess you'll have to wait till tonight for my new card (made with the matching bra to yesterday's panties card).

Hope everyone has a great Friday. We're in the home stretch now!

Liz's RAK and A Little Something From Me

Yesterday I received a beautiful RAK in the mail. What is an RAK you ask? It's a Random Act of Kindness. Liz belongs to a yahoo group I belong to and is very talented. I wanted to share her card here for all to see.

She used a House Mouse image that I haven't seen before. The little mouse is inside the birdfeeder looking quite full and content...the birds are outside looking at him. She added dimension to the birds by popping them up...and each bird has a different area popped, for example, the one in the middle has a in indent where his neck would be bent looking up...but the rest is popped up. Very realistic. She also added something like liquid glass to the birdfeeder so it looks like plastic or glass. And there is glitter on the flowers. This cheerful card is JUST what I needed when I got home yesterday. I hadn't had a good day and it really was a nice surprise! Thanks Liz!

And here is a close up of just the birds...hopefully you can see the dimension. I've never seen it like this before.

And now...just a little something from me!

This is a new Langley Design's stamp from Gina K. The design is a sketch from Angelosity's blog.

I added little glitter dots to the panties. Isn't it fun? The set also has a bra stamp which I'll show you tomorrow.

Gotta get dressed and out of here for the day. Have a great Thursday...TGIF is ALMOST here!


Wednesday, October 17, 2007


I walked in the door from work last night and my husband says "You got a phone call from the scrapbook need to return the call by 8:00". So I go get on the phone and call the scrapbook store...and
are you ready?????
are you sure you're ready????
I was chosen to be on the DESIGN TEAM for the store!

I'm so psyched (can you tell?) I don't know the details yet (how sad is that...I'm this excited and they could tell me I'm working for nothing...but I wouldn't care...I'm still excited about being chosen! LOL!) On Friday I'll pick up my first Design Packet and all the details will be in there. I can decide then if I want to stay on the team.


Tuesday, October 16, 2007

More Gina K!

Another new creation to share thanks to my new Gina K stamps.

This one is Sandy Claws. The whole greeting says "Sandy Claws is Coming to Town" but I only used the "Sandy Claws" for this card. I also used liquid applique on the coat and hat to make it fluff up. I had a really difficult time getting a decent photograph. Hopefully these two will do it justice. The sketch is from Beate's Saturday sketch challenge here.

Here is a close up of just Sandy Claws...isn't he adorable?

Have a great day!

Monday, Monday....

Boy, that weekend went by fast! ;-) I did't accomplish much. Saturday we tried to find the farm but wasn't successful - so instead we just went into town and ran some errands. Yesterday I did make homemade bread and chicken n' noodles. Took some of that over to my neighbor whose husband passed away. Her kids left this weekend so she's alone...figured she may not feel like cooking for one. I managed a few cards this weekend. Seemed like each was a struggle to come up with something I even somewhat liked. My stamping MoJo has got up and gone bye-bye. It'll come back always does.

Anyways, in the spirit of is one of the cards I made. It was made using this weeks sketch challenge on SCS. The red strip is actually on the inside of the card and the front of the card has about an inch cut away. The image overhangs the cut away part. The penguin image is one of my new ones from Gina K Designs. I wanted to color him with my black prismacolor pencil...but that pencil must have gotten up and walked off on it's own. So I had to use markers on him for coloring. The greeting is from CTMH.

Here is a close up of the image itself...isn't he a cute penguin? Did I mention my penguin fetish???? Maybe it's because I waddle like a penguin myself some days. Or maybe it's just the black/white color combo (hey, that makes them REALLY easy to color!) I'm not sure if you can see it but I used stickles (glitter glue) on his hat and scarf.

And to continue my penguin passion affair...I just ordered 3 more of the Memory Box penguin stamps. I found a company that was going out of business. All stamps 40% off. I wish they had more selection (I imagine they originally had more but it was first come, first served.) I got the hawaiian penguin, one holding a bouquet of flowers, and one in his swim trunks. The other one they had was a surfing penguin...but it didn't "float" my boat. :-)

Gotta get ready for work. Have a great day all!

Penguin Joy

This is the new stamp I picked up at Michael's last week. It's made by Stampendous. Very, very cute. I seem to have a thing for penguins and crabs when it comes to stamping!

I followed one of the sketches from Angel's blog Angelosity. She is counting down to her birthday and posting a sketch each day. You can read the details on her blog...but it has chances to win blog candy AND great sketches (and you all KNOW how much I love sketches!)

Here is the card I came up with:

I flipped the sketch so it was vertical and not horizontal. I used the cuttlebug snowflake embossing plate on the blue background. I colored under the penguins with light blue to simulate ice and then used glitter on that area as well. I used the huge decorative staples instead of regular staples. The "joy" word is from CTMH (an old retired set). The striped mini brad is from Queen & Co...and it went perfectly with the ribbon (which was from Michael's).

Hope you like it!

Just a Little Monkey Business

I love my Stampendous Changito Monkey stamps!

Last night I was feeling the need to
do something creative before I went to bed. So I whipped up this card. Easily a 10 minute or less card. So nothing fancy but I like it.

I stamped the monkeys and colored them in. Layered twice (using corner punch on all layers) then set aside. For the base I used the dark green base...and then added a 4 x 5 1/4 panel of patterened paper. It aleady had the nice little designs and the center strip with the text worked perfectly to divide the card up. So I just placed my main image on top of that using dimensional adhesive and put two brads on either side of the strip and a little piece of folded ribbon at the top corner. All done! Sweet and simple. Usually I'll spend hours doing a card but last night I didn't have the energy to do anything complicated. I'm really happy with how this card turned out considering the time/energy invested.

There is a farm opening today where we live. They are giving tours and having vendors there. We might take the kids to do that...if so I'll be posting pictures soon. Have a great weekend!

Umbrella Girl from Amuse

Is it Friday yet???? Boy this week has seemed long! I'm so ready for the weekend. When that alarm went off this morning I just wanted to curl up and stay in bed. Of course as winter comes and it's darker and just makes that instinct stronger.

Anyways, today I'm sharing a square card (5 1/4 x 5 1/4). I love square cards...but unfortunately they cost more to mail. Usually I'll make a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 card and just use a regular card size envelope and then not pay extra postage.

The girl and the oval stamp under her are both from Amuse (the girl is a stamped image I got from the Wish RAK on SCS). I don't remember who makes the greeting.

Have a great day all.

It's a Bella kind of day!

I decided to dig into my stamped images envelope and find something different to play with. I don't own any of the Bellas (from but have received quite a few images from swaps on SCS. I think this one is called Cosmobella (for obvious reasons!)

I used a couple stamps from a Michael's $1 set of acrylic stamps on this. You'll see the flower on the background and also the greeting. In addition I tried to add some interest by rounding the corners and allowing just the bottom edge color to peak out.

Going to be a long day for me today. Work till 3:30 when I need to leave early and drive an hour to an appointment that starts at 5:00 and should run till 6:00...then attend the neighbor's viewing from 6-7p.m. Can someone out there take a nap for me and do some stamping for me? Something fun??? ;-)

Happy Christmas Chick

I saw this sketch on Di Hickman's blog and wanted to try it out. Now I'm not sure I like it! Oh well...can't love everything I do.

The chick is from Stampendous. He's such a cutie.

On a personal note, did I mention that our neighbor died on Sunday? I can't remember if I did or not. They were a senior couple and had always kind of been the 'parents' of the cul-de-sac. I always kind of equated them with my folks. So I guess it's no surprise that him dying has brought back a lot of emotions about my parents' deaths. And last night I drempt that my Dad died again. Bleh, bleh, bleh. Hate those dreams. I wake up sad and exhausted. Today I'm in charge of ordering the flowers for our neighborhood and having them sent to the funeral home for the viewing tomorrow night. I'm thankful it is just the viewing and the burial will be elsewhere. Don't want to attend another military burial. They had one on a TV show the other night and I had to turn it off.

Anyways, off to a morning of training and then inbounding claims files. Have a good day all.

Beate's Sketch Challenge

Beate (one of the queens of the stamping world) has a sketch challenge on her blog each weekend. This is for WSC22.

The dog, the saying, and the background stamp are all from Stampin Up. The oval under the dog is from Amuse. Cardstocks are from CTMH, as are the inks. This looks cuter in person...somehow pastel cards just don't photograph well.

Have a great Monday.

Sketch & Limited Supply Challenge

I seem to have gone straight from Halloween cards to Christmas cards this weekend. The card I'm sharing today is one that meets SC144 (Sketch Challenge 144) on SCS and also meets LSC136 (Limited Supply Challenge 136). The limited supply challenge stated you could only use a sentiment stamp (no backgrounds, no images).

Combining the two...this is what I came up with...

The saying is an older wood mounted one from Close To My Heart. It was perfect for this sketch. Most of my greetings are smaller - but this one worked well for the sketch. Everything else is just paper - and three mini brads from Queen & Co.

This morning I woke up to the sound of a helicopter. Not that unusual around here (there is a airbase just a bit away from us so sometimes they fly over) but then in my muddled brain I realized that the sound wasn't going away. Opened my eyes and saw red lights flashing through our blinds. Got up and looked out at the medical helicopter which was landed in our cul-de-sac. Two things happened...first off I wondered who it was for and secondly I flashed back 10+ years ago when they were all there to get my husband who'd been bleeding internally and lost 7 units of blood. I got dressed and went outside to see what I could find out. There is an older couple that lives in our cul-de-sac. They've lived here since slightly before us. So we've been neighbors for about 11 years. They took the male away to the nearest hospital - but told us he had no heartbeat and wasn't breathing on his own. His wife will be lost without him. Typical older couple - he always dominated, she always waited on him. I think she's stronger than we give her credit for. At least I hope so because it wasn't looking good when they took him away this morning.

On a more cheerful note, I applied for another Design Team on Friday. It's for an online company called Prickley Pear Stamps. I've bought a few of their unmounted stamps in the past. I was able to submit one item using their stamps and a couple other items. So wish me luck.

I was hoping that more places would have sales yesterday (National Card Making Day) but didn't find any. I did break down and went to Gina K's site and ordered this, and this, and this, and this. I LOVE her crab designs...they are so personable. I guess you can see why my fantasy includes going on her cruise next year...anyone win the lottery lately and want to pay my way??? ;-)

About Me

Well, no new pictures to share this morning. But I'm feeling remiss in missing more than a day on my blog. So I'm going to do something a little different today. I'm going to talk about ME (not my artwork!)


1. I'm an Arizona native. I've never lived anywhere else. I always said once my parents passed away I'd probably move somewhere cooler. But now they are gone and I have kids who have started school, a hubby, a house and dogs and .... well you get the picture! I feel settled and doubt I'll ever move.

2. I'm a tomboy. I grew up with 3 older brothers. To survive you become a tomboy! I can change a tire, I can change my oil, I can ride a dirtbike. I've drank nasty water out of a cow pond. (My oldest brother hiked me to the middle of nowhere with no water!) I broke my wrist in two places on a dare from my 'youngest' brother.

3. My beverage of choice is Mt. Dew. I don't drink coffee...but every morning I sit with a mug of Mt. Dew and check my email/update my blog. Now that I'm on Weight Watchers I only drink 1 cup a day so it's a special treat in the morning to jumpstart my day.

4. I've had many losses in my life including family and friends.

5. I'm a dog person. In general I'm an animal person...but dogs are my favorite. As a child my favorite book was a hardbound book about all the AKC breeds. We bred beagles. The first dog that was MY dog was a 13 in miniature beagle that I named Twinkle Bell Star (yeah...I was 10...give me a break!) She rode the swing with with me, rode the motorcycle with me...etc. She had one batch of puppies and then at some point ran away and got hit on the highway. We had several after but none were the same to me.

6. My first car was a 1969 mustang. White with a dark blue racing stripe up the center with a hood scoop. It was one HOT car. Only two in our high school had classic cars and we tended to park them by each other. His camero and my mustang. My brothers got mad at me when I got rid of it a couple years later.

7. I'm shy...believe it or not. I'm always surprised when people describe me as outgoing...because I really feel shy. But I guess it depends on the circumstances. In a group I'm shy. One on one, I'll talk to complete strangers (and do).

8. I've been married 16 years...more than half my life! It seems so strange in that context. We got married at 20 years old - so maybe if we live to be 70 we'll actually get to reach a 50th wedding anniversary! One advantage of marrying young.

9. I've gotten more judgemental as I've gotten older but I still consider myself pretty open. It may just be that I'm not as patient as I used to be, or that I've learned that there are some REALLY important things in life and some really UNimportant things in life and I don't have patience for people who are so wrapped up in the UNimportant things. Also, I've learned I want to surround myself with positive people so that changes my selection of friends at some point as well.

10. My favorite quote is, "Success is getting up ONE more time than you fall down." My favorite song right now is, "If You're Going Through Hell". My favorite color is blue. And you all know my favorite hobby!

And now...I need to go get ready to have lunch with a friend. Have a great day all! I'll try to create some new things this weekend to share in the upcoming week.

You're Just My Style...

The department administrative assistant at work is a major SHOE person. And she got put to the task of getting my name changed everywhere (I go by my middle name but as a new hire the phone directory, email, etc was set up under my first name). So I wanted to make her a shoe card as a thank you. I love how it turned out. Brighter than my normal style but it really fits her personality.

The stamp is a stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's. The saying is from SU's Haute Couture set. I used the SU slot punch to make the scalloped edge to the border and then used an eyelet guide to make perfect circles with my white gel pen. Each shoe is covered in clear stickles so it really shines.

Oh...on a totally different front...a friend sent me a link this morning that is hilarious. I'm going to see if I can post it here and get it to work. It's the Mom Song...everything a Mom would say in a 24 hour squished down into a song that runs under 3 minutes.

Enjoy! and have a great day!

I know how SHE feels!

I saw this stamp for sale and HAD to buy it. I SO know how she feels! LOL. Very simple card...using a sketch from a yahoo group I belong to called Scrapandshare. I do Weight Watchers with the neighbor lady...I think this card will go to her on Thursday when we go to our meeting.

I used my prismacolor pencils to color her in. I wish that I would have dry embossed the background paper but was feeling too lazy. I used pop up adhesive on the panel itself so it's a little higher than the card base. SU corner punch and mini brads...and that's about it. A very simple card. (About as simple as mine come...I struggle with anything simpler.)


Monday, October 1, 2007


I'm not positive who makes this snake stamp...but if I had to guess I'd say Viva Las Vegas Stamps. I received it in a trade of unmounteds. I love how the card turned out and it could just have easily been made for a boy's birthday or something similar. The greeting is made using Karen Foster Snap Stamps.

Enjoy and thankzzzz for stopping by!

Man Basher Card

Remember a couple posts ago I showed the new stamps I'd bought? Well, when I was stamping Saturday night I looked through my grab bag of unmounted rubber from Viva Las Vegas Stamps and came across a saying that just HAD to be used with one of the stamps.

So, this card is for all you disgruntled ladies out there (or at least for those with a twisted sense of humor!)

In case you can't read it, the saying says: "If there were no men in the world, there'd be no crime and lots of fat, happy women!"

Happy Monday everyone.
