prosaic: adjective

 characteristic of prose as distinguished from poetry : factual
 dull, unimaginative
everyday, ordinary


( As a side note, I have to say I got tickled yesterday in church when our Preacher coincidentally used the word for the day that I had posted on Sunday. He was talking about the acrostic that we use to remember the colors of the you know it? )

Hi everyone, it's time for the Frosted designs Monday Inspiration girls to give you a last burst of creativity for the new challenge...are you ready? Now they gave us a LO sketch, but frankly after all the scrapping I did for NSB I was totally out of pictures. Can you believe it? So I converted the sketch into a card.

So I am hoping that if I put my card right next to the sketch, then you will see how I adapted it. Not always the easiest thing to do, but it is doable.

The playing cards came from a museum in Charleston, SC and I've had them like forever. They are too flimsy to actually play with and I never knew quite what to do with them. So glad I hoard  save everything! lol See, that reinforces me to not throw anything away!

The last of my black felt butterflies....sigh....

Colorbok - butterfly
CARDSTV - sentiment stamp
Faber Castell - PITT pen
Ranger - Distress Marker

My discussion over at Journal of a Lazy Dieter is about the affects of caffeine on your body. I HAVE to cut out the tea and chocolate, heaven help me.

Fun use for the playing cards you can't use. I had to chuckle as it reminded me of when I went to Paris they said Marie A. really didn't utter "Let them eat cake". That was a surprise to me.

Such a clever way to adapt your challenge. Loved the card, how wonderful you were able to remember you had it (and FIND it!). Great sentiment with the motif too. TFS & Stay dry. Hugs

Now that's a coincidence!
I never learned the rainbow color thing. What a deprived childhood, eh?

Hi Sandee,

Great card. I can see why you saved the cards - they are very old looking (or is THAT how long they've been at your house?)!
