FAMILY IS ANOTHER WORD FOR LAUNDRY

My sister used to have a stamp that said "Family is another word for Love" - I told her at the time it should be "Family is another word for laundry" -- so when I saw this Mo Manning Digital design I knew I had to have it!  I was going to put the sentiment on the front, but didn't have enough room to make it look reasonable, so it's going to have to go on the inside.  I got the clothes pins from a present I received last year.  I peeled off the things that were stuck to it, and used them as an embellishment.  I decided that since laundry was a day-in day-out task, I'd also put a little calendar on the front to reflect the endlessness of the task!  The destressed edges are also meant to leave the viewer with a subliminal message!

Fantastic card! I love all the bright colours. What a fabulous image this is and I agree, family is another word for laundry. I think you should go into the business of clever stamp sayings.
