Has my blog titled intrigued you? It's a really funny story! But I'll get to that in a bit. I've been wanting to do rosettes for a while and when I saw the sketch at Mojo Monday. I thought it was a perfect opportunity. I also had some pattern paper scraps remaining from a previous project and they happened to totally go with the Dynamic Duo color combination this week which is monochromatic and this also happens to be the challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown. So all things put together, this is my card.
Now on to the story. About a month and a half ago, my apartment building had this carnival and I put up a stall of all my cards and crafts. It sold like hot cakes and my major market were young girls - from age 5 to 14! A few days after the carnival, one little girl came to me and said, 'Aunty I didn't see your cards at the Carnival. All my friends were saying you were selling such beautiful cards. I didn't get a chance to come by. I really want a card... Do you have any left?
I said, 'Sorry - no all my cards were sold.'
She said, 'Oh Aunty can you make one for me, I really want one'.
I said, 'Ok sure - it will be Rs. 70.
She said, 'Ok thanks'.
A few days later as I was sitting in the playground with my kids, she came running to me,
'Aunty, have you started my card?'
'No not yet', I replied.
'Oh thank goodness!' she said, 'Actually Aunty, can you make a 50 rupees card? Not a 70 rupees card?'
I giggled to myself and said 'Ok sure'
Then yesterday she ran up to me again, 'Aunty, I want to give the card on Monday - is it ready?'
'Oh ya.. I forgot about that', I said, 'Ok I will give it to you tomorrow'
'Thanks so much Aunty!' And she ran off but not before saying,
'Only 50 rupees ok Aunty!'
And this is the card she is getting. Even now as I type, I am giggling to myself. Sometimes you need comments like this to stay grounded, don't you think!
Have a great Sunday folks!
