Life is Too Short to Match Socks.....

...and besides, how can you match them when they disappear into thin air?  I will never figure that one out, seriously, where on earth do socks go???  I have a drawer in my laundry room with no less than 30 unmatched socks sitting in it right now.....and some have been there for over a year (because I think the minute the garbage men take them away the match will mysteriously appear and then I just wasted a perfectly good sock) yeah, I admit it, sometimes my kids wear unmatched socks (although the only difference is the color stitching of the logo).  I also admit that it drives me nuts that there are missing socks out there...somewhere......

Now onto the card that inspired this little discussion: 
I think this is just a really "fun" set to use.  I followed the Unity Hip Hop sketch on SCS for this card.  When I saw it I knew I wanted to play along because this is actually one of my favorite sketches and I have used many variations of it in the past.  Since my background paper is a bit on the busy side, I added a simple knotted ribbon to the corner and then some brads to the sentiment in place of the o's.

I do have one more card that I finished today, but I can't show you that until Thursday.  Now to type up and pre-schedule that post since I'm not sure when else I will have a chance to get to it.

Oh I love this card Jodi, every mother understands your dilema. I used to play a game called 'Pairs' with my children, I would get out all the odd socks and the child that got the most pairs won the game lol, it doesn't work anymore though, the older one's just don't get excited about it anymore lol.

Great card, and so true! Unmatched socks are the style though, they even sell them that way! I guess someone got tired of always trying to find those mates! Thanks so much for joining us at Meljen's Designs!
