I have a card to share with you today that I did for today's teaparty challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. This week Cindy has challenged everyone to make a card with the theme being One Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest. The story is about Beulah the Bluebird who got hit by Lexus, and thanks to a crafty lawyer she's been given a bird and breakfast as compensation. The problem is Beulah needs all the help she can get because ever since she got hit by the Lexus she's been a little scatterbrained.
I thought Beulah could use a good maid to help keep her bird and breakfast clean and tidy, so here's my card.

This was such fun to color, but I had a bit of time deciding what I wanted it to say! The image is French Maid Service from Squigglefly's After Dark section. Isn't this a fun one?
I colored with Copic markers and used chalk for the floors and background. I finally settled on the old school "I see London, I see France" verse for the front. The fun is coming up with the inside - I've tossed around these ideas
I can't play now
I'm dusting the plants!
Looks like someone
forgot to wear pants!
I know you
took a second glance!
I'm only in this silly outfit
What's your favorite? Tell me one of your own, or maybe you'd go a completely different route altogether. I'm only sending this as a silly card to make someone laugh, but this would be a great image for a spouse's birthday or valentine's card, wouldn't it? Hmmm, what would the card say then? I'll give it some thought!
I hope your day is a wonderful one, and thanks so much for stopping by!
