There are only a few household chores that I dread..... vaccuming and ironing.
With that said, I love being a SAHM.
My hubs loves that I do a great job keeping the household running smoothly.....
Don't ya love this.....I do!!!
This has to be my expression on my face when I feel the dread of any
impending ironing looming over my head....
not sure what she's thinking but I'm probably thinking that very thought myself.
I going to hang this in my laundry room and maybe it'll give me a *giggle*
when I have actual ironing to do.
First I went looking in my studio for something of a household nature to use as the base.
I found a balsa wood ironing board....perfect.
I then, covered it with some thin batting and then this gorgeous black gingham.
I added some cotton cord on the back for a hanger and then added the peachy/pink
card stock to the backside to cover up the fabric ends.
I found this peachy/pink floral fabric and cut a small rectangle and used and adhered it to the top of the ironing board at an angle and gathered a little.
I used a piece of metal from a soda can and made a makeshift iron using a paper piercer and a stylus to emboss the edges a bit.
Then stamped the lady's face stamp onto the same peachy/pink card stock using black ink and blushed up her cheeks with some chalk. I used a white gel pen to highlight her eye a wee bit also.
Stamped the sentiment and used coordinating oval punches.

The stamps can be purchased here......
The rest of the items were in my stash of 'schtufffff ' as my hubs so lovingly call it.
Until later, jokesters.......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!!!
