Dinner for One

Hey y'all.  Another week, another dollar my pa would say.  Once again it's Inventory Challenge time! I have been challenged to make a card using ribbon and lace.  Now let me tell you - that is one heck of a challenge for this mountain woman.  But it does remind me of when Tilda was invited to a fancy dress party.  Mama was all excited and really had to rummage through the trunk to find some pretty stuff to make Tilda a dress.  Mama was  hoping that Tilda would meet a proper suitor and settle down.  Little did she know . . . . .





Isn't Tilda's dress purty!  She looks just like an angel.





"KISS ME!" the frog said.  "And I will turn into a handsome prince and I will marry you.  You can cook my meals, wash my clothes and have my children . .  and we will live happily ever after."





That night, while dining on frog legs . . . . . . . . . .







The moral of this story is NEVER BELIEVE WHAT A FROG TELLS YOU!

My sincerest thanks to Angela Wood for the dress design. You can see the original on her blog.  I would like to invite you to visit my team mates for Inventory Challenge #19 ----
Christina,  Danielle ,  CharleneRene,  and  Jean.

Additional challenge:   Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I sure do appreciate your comments.

Hugs - Sandy

Card Crazy said...

Sandy, this is great. You've done it again. Tilda in her beautiful, frilly gown, so girly and sweet, and then you throw the curve. Too funny, too true! Although if the frog turned into Johnny Depp I'm not sure I'd mind too much!

Barb Hardeman said...

This is just such an adorable "girly" card with the ribbon and punched lace! And hilarious too! When I saw the front I thought of The scene Carol Burnett did on her show once about Scarlet O'Hara and she had the curtain rods still attached to her dress. ROFL! Your wonderful sense of humor comes alive once again! Love that "phat" frog! Love the way you did Tilda's dress with the hearts...you just keep getting better and better!!!
Hugs,
Barb

Hi, Sandy!
Another adorable sweet card and a delicious story to go with. Now, I'm pretty sure a real prince wouldn't try to impress a girl with that sort of story but gosh it's so funny:))
Your coloring is marvellous and that dress surely looks great (saw it before on Angela's blog and thought to make one too! Great idea!
Lovely simple construction of the card! Just adorable Sandy!
Always a pleasure to read your blog!
