Hedgie Laundry

     I'm sending this card to a recently-divorced, 30-something, dad-of-young-kids who suddenly became aware that he had no idea how to do laundry!  Inside I added a cute but very vintage list of which days were for which housekeeping chores.

     How many of you remember the old song called "Rest on Sunday?"  My mother and my Grammy taught it to me when I was very young.  It went like this:

Rest on Sunday 

Wash on Monday, Iron on Tuesday, Mend on Wednesday, 

Market on Thursday, Clean on Friday, Bake on Saturday. 

Then you have all day to Rest on Sunday.

      I remember we had dish towels in our kitchen with the chores embroidered on them, too.  :-D

      This adorable image is from Penny Black.

Colored with water colors & gel pens
Cut with Spellbinders deckle die
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Raffia bow
Green CS background is a scrap


     I'll have another cute Penny Black image to share with you later this week but for today. this is all I have.  After three separate posts yesterday, I'm tired!  lol  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

A real fun card, many thanks for sharing and joining us at Penny Black and More challenge.

Yes, I remember the rhyme told by my Gran, here in the UK the wording was slightly different and ended with 'And Sunday is a day of rest'.
