Mojo Monday AND Pink Elephant challenges

Everyone is mad at me today. I started sweeping and as I pulled out the dining room chairs to get to the hardened pieces of play-doh wedged in the crevices, I displaced both cats. One meowed and the other just gave me a withering look before padding off to the bedroom to get his revenge ... perhaps with a well placed hairball under the pillow.

The dog, who needs to be near me ... always, gave a heavy sigh each time I asked him to move. And when I tapped him with my broom for the 12th time in a minute, he too abandoned his quest for togetherness.

The last straw was when the two four year olds complained. One dressed in an apron and carrying a light sabre and the other wearing a crooked page-boy wig and half a giraffe costume were running through my house and slid through my pile sending it careening in all directions. "Mom," said the aproned Jedi Knight. "This," he said sweeping his arm to encompass all my cleaning supplies, "it just isn't safe."

I took it as a sign from God, and went down to stamp.

This card fulfills two challenges. The layout is based on the Mojo Monday sketch. I moved the eyelets from the end of the rectangle to the corners of my card. My rectangle was too short!

I am not sure what stamp this is since it's an RAK sent from a fellow stamper. I also fulfilled Lori and the Pink Elephant team since her challenge is to use green ... and there is green on my card ... a bit anyway!
