Dr. Seuss Christmas

I hope you had a good weekend!  I finally got to do laundry after going almost a whole week without a washing machine!  We’re in the middle of an addition to the laundry room and have had to unhook the washer and dryer for a few days.  DH finally took pity on me Saturday afternoon and hooked them back up so I could get five people’s worth of laundry processed for the week ahead!  Whew!  There’s nothing like clean laundry all washed and put away!

Between loads of laundry, I was able to stamp a card and today is Prickley Pear Monday!  I just love this sentiment, a quote from Dr. Seuss!  He is one of my favorite children’s authors and, as silly as his books are, he has a way of getting a point across!  I felt like using both traditional and not-so-traditional holiday colors for this card, but used bright hues just for fun!  The cat makes me smile in his hat and when I cut him out, his tail naturally spiraled outward in a cute curl, making him that much cuter!

Supplies:
Stamps – Prickley Pear (Holly & Berries Clear Set – cat, It Came Without Ribbons – sentiment)
Paper – My Mind’s Eye DP, Bazzill textured white CS
Ink – SU Basic Gray, Lucky Limeade (sponging)

Accessories – Nestabilities (circle), red gemstones, SU Real Red taffeta ribbon, Stickles (Diamond, on hat), foam dots (popped up cat image)

    Sooooo cute, Melissa! I just love that Dr. Seuss quote, too. Works perfectly with the adorable retro cat. Love your color palette here and the fun papers. This truly makes me smile!

    Perfect quote…so very true.

    Glad you got all your laundry done, and 'put away'…that's the big one. 😉 Doesn't feel done, until it is put away.
