At Least You Don’t Have Ugly Kids – MIX Challenge #484

Today Angie has challenged us to use pets in the Free For All Challenge. And Janelle has challenged us to make MOMumental cards in the MIX Challenge. Searching my stamp catalog for “Mother’s Day” and “dog” resulted in the perfect stamp for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. She was just helping me fold laundry last night while we watched Jeopardy. This fun image needed a funny sentiment, so I went with the classic “No matter what life throws at you…at least you don’t have ugly children.” Her two boys are very handsome.

As always I’m sharing the sentiment here if you’d like to use it.  Just right click on the images below and save it to your computer.  If you use it, I’d love to see it, so please tag me @cardsbyjennifrann and #thestampingactuary.

To qualify for the MIX challenge, I went digging through my background drawer. It was a tough decision, but I thought this marbly background went well with laundry.  I’m always glad I have my phone handy when I’m trying to choose backgrounds.  I took pictures of so many options before I chose the one I did.

What do you think?  Did I make the right choice?  You know I always make two cards, but I only needed one Mother’s Day card.  For my other card I went with this gelli print that I thought had a bubbly/wallpaper look.

I love an excuse to use my favorite Riley and Company sentiment:

Good times in the craft room this morning.
