♥robot loooooooooove♥*

lovely husband jeff thinks this card is, and i quote, "kind of strange". bear in mind, lhj has lived with me for close to a quarter century...so you'd think he'd've developed a pretty high "strangeness tolerance" by now, wouldn't you??! i should mention it's an anniversary card for our friends kim and dave, who've also known me for 25 years. and they DEFINITELY have a high strangeness tolerance, so i think it'll be fine!

this is also my card for the brand new CAARDVARKS challenge, which starts today and runs through midnight, august 31st. this time we're sponsored by the lovely folks at my stamp box, who've challenged us to make *new* cards using their logo colors: black, white and hot pink!


of course, this was a very difficult task for me, these being colors i soooooooooo rarely use!** but i muddled through, and strangeness notwithstanding, i am quite pleased with the result!

(transparency, robots, word bubble, bracket & "love": hambly; journaling card: adrienne looman for prima; pink patterned paper strip: doodlebug; ribbons: michaels & making memories; epoxy heart stickers: paperchase; "robot" letter stickers: staples; embroidery floss: dmc; adhesives: tombow mono runner & 3m foam tape)

be sure to bop on over to the 'varks blog to see the rest of the crew's take on the challenge, and cast an eye upon the lovely MSB goodies that shall be *YOURS* if you make the winning card!


*feel free to say this in your best barry white voice. or your best r2d2 voice. or your best marvin-the-paranoid-android voice. all of these are quite fun!...isn't it great to have *OPTIONS*??! :)

**if you are buying this, then you're definitely new here: WELCOME!!!

  2. Holy Moly, Girl! Your followers just exploded :) Kudos to you!!! I was one of the first, I knew you when you were just a little famous.

    I just came from the 'Varks. I was scrolling through the lovely cards, enjoying each one, then I saw yours and burst out laughing*. I adore LHJ (seems like I know him so well), but I don't understand why he thinks your card is "kind of strange." It is 100% Lauren. Anything else would be ho-hum and a disappointment.

    *Homer Simpson is one of dh's idols. One of his fave Homer quotes is, "it's funny 'cause it's true." I laughed because your card is true to YOU, the Lauren I love so well. Mmwaa (that is a cyber kiss from me!)

  5. I went with the Barry White voice, quite appropriate I believe.
    And I must have a high strange tolerance because I think these bots are perfect for an anniversary card! ;)
