Housework Can't Kill You...

Just a quick post today as I've lots to do - not anything constructive like housework mainly reconstructive i.e. beautifying myself for a night out tonight - as you get older it takes longer and longer don't you think? It's really just the makeup which is holding my face together!!! So for my LIM 3,2,1 challenge entry this week I'm sharing this card:

As you can see there are 3 colours, 2 letters and one ribbon. The letters and pink heart were cut using my Cricut and for the embossed lines I used my Scor-pal.

Before I go today I'd like to share a few of the late Phyllis Diller's one liners. She died this week and I remember she fascinated me when I was little even though I probably didn't understand her humour (or I had a very mature wit for my young years!) It was probably her outrageous  wigs, costumes and her equally outrageous laugh which appealed to me. Anyway here we go:

o Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?
o I want my children to have all the things I couldn't afford. Then I want to move in with them.
o Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age - as your beauty fades, so will his eyesight.
o Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
o The reason women don't play football is because 11 of them would never wear the same outfit in public.
o Tranquilisers work only if you follow the advice on the bottle - keep away from children.
o Best way to get rid of kitchen odours: eat out.
o It's a good thing that beauty is only skin deep, or I'd be rotten to the core.
o You know you're old if they have discontinued your blood type.
o Most children threaten at times to run away from home. This is the only thing that keeps some parents going.
o Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
o Old age is when the liver spots show through your gloves.
o What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.
o A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
