Sprinkler Girl

Are you familiar with the saying "of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most".  That one seems to be hitting home more and more lately.  I made this card last week and I thought that I'd posted it already.  Just another forgetful incidence. The more I forget the more  I'm hanging onto something I'd read or heard a long time ago, that is "Don't worry when you forget you keys or where you put the phone, it's time to worry when you no longer know what they do or how to use them."  So far so good, but what about putting the iron in the refrigerator.  It's not like I use it very often, in fact I can't remember the last time I used it but I do remember laughing hysterically when I opened the fridge door and it was sitting there.  Ah, life, ain't it grand.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "PI Sprinkler Girl"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" for image and "Bamboo Leaves" for sentiment
paper - Stampin' Up "Dusty Durango", "Crushed Curry" and "Kraft" card stock; My Minds Eye "Lime Twist - Fly a Kite" dp
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Skyline" and "Star" border (the star border ended up getting buried under the ribbon but the bottom yellow border is one of the toss away sides from the cut); Stampin' Up "Bermuda Bay" ribbon; yellow floss; sun charm; buttons; star brads; Spare Parts clip; machine stitching

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club MFTWSC84 - sketch
No Matter Which Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too #19 - Anything Goes
One Stop Crafts #195 - Summer Holiday
CRAFT #167 - Add a Charm
