Lucky! FMS76


Time for the annual St. Patrick's Day card!  Actually I made two of these since my husband John and his twin sister share a St. Patrick's Day birthday.  Her card will contain some Lottery Tickets - so I hope she is lucky! His card sends the message that we are lucky to have each other because I can't believe anyone else has conversations like this:

I swear the following is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth........

The setting:  I was home watching Emma and the noon news when the phone rings and my daughter's home phone number pops up on the TV screen. I immediately think my daughter came home from work early. I answer the phone.


Me:  What's wrong?  Why are you home?
John:  I'm not home.  Aren't you home?
Me:  Of course I'm home - you just called me here.
John:  Well then you should know I am not there.
Me:  I know you're not here - I thought something happened with Erin.
John:  Something happened to Erin?
Me:  Nothing happened to Erin - I meant with Erin - like a reason to make her come home early.
John:  Well I'm at her house and she's not here.
Me:  I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE!!!
John:  Well then I don't know why you are so confused!

So help me God.........



No confusion at Freshly Made Sketches this week - just a great sketch from Linda S!

Hilarious! I loved your story and your card. The shamrocks on the chevron pattern look fantastic and I like how you also added some "gold" to your card by using the summer starfruit ribbon. Well done!

Hilarious!! That would have been a laugh for last week's challenge too. I love your LUCKY card, the pearls look perfect in the center of your clovers..the one with 4 leaves goes with the lottery ticket!

That is too funny!!! I thought I was the only one who had these circular conversations! ;-) Adorable card...and they are lucky to get them!

Jen said...

That's a great story! Glad you preserved it for posterity here!! And that's a pretty cool card too!

Nancy said...

Too funny Linda, but love your sharing it with all of us! BTW very cute card, husband is a twin huh, interesting.

Rita said...

LOL We have these conversations much too often these days here too. Thanks for the laugh tonight. My brother was born on the 17th, so I need to whip up a card full of green for him soon! I love yours and wish I had bought that stamp now!

Jen Brum said...

Love your card Linda! Those shamrocks are fabulous! Great colour! Your husband and his sister will love it! I love your conversation! i thought my parents were the only ones that had those kinds of conversations!!!! Glad you wrote it done! I'm sure Erin got a kick out of it as well!

Ann Schach said...

What a hoot, Linda! I love the conversation. It sounds similar to the conversations at my house. Your card is adorable. I love the pearls!

Deena Boos said...

Gorgeous card! Enjoyed your little story too, too funny!

Typical male convoluted logic. I can certainly relate. I've been married to one of those for the last 32 years. I think I'm still somewhat sane; although there are times when I'm not so sure.

Love the card by the way.

Linda Suarez said...

Very funny Linda! We've had plenty of those kinds of conversations at my house! I love your card! Those shamrocks are so cute with those pearls. I was just thinking that I needed to make some cards for St. Patrick's. I always forget and they never get made. Your card is such a wonderful inspiration for me!

Narelle Farrugia said...

That's funny Linda! Gotta love them! This is a fabulous card you've created - love the shamrocks! Is that gumball green? Thanks for the warm welcome - I'm so thrilled to be playing along with you all!

(giggling over your phone conversation) LOL!
I love the combination of 2 shamrocks and one four-leaf clover over the word lucky! Brilliant!!

Cindy Hall said...

Oh my gosh, Linda! That is so hilarious! It reminds me of "Who's on first?". Men are so confused, but they keep us laughing. You card is fabulous. I love everything about it, but was especially attracted to the spritzing... a tool that I never remember.

Connie said...

LOVE your story!!! Too funny! Gorgeous shamrock card...love how they appear to float across the panel! Thanks for playing along with the SUO Challenge!

Marisa said...

What a fabulous St. Patrick's day card!! Love the shamrocks and the lucky banner.

That conversation is too funny (well at least maybe now but not when you were in the middle of it LOL!). I think I had a lot of those types when I was spaced out exhausted and sleep deprived when my kids were young!
