No Dirty Dishes Day

Hooray! May 18 is No Dirty Dishes day--more on that later.  Not only no dirty dishes for me, I am seriously considering letting someone else cook also. So I am spending the time saved by doing something fun with this cute dancing chick.

Digital image is From The Heart (now out of business). Sentiment is from a sign I saw in a gift shop. I traced over the word sparkle with a clear gel star pen. The pattern paper is by Recollections. I used a Fiskar border punch for the shiny purple scallops. Bling added with pink and gold sequins. I used some clear glitter glue to add sparkle to the tutu.

Inside I did a computer sentiment, stamped a tiara (unlabled) and colored it with gold gel star pen.

Entering in a couple of challenges

Double Trouble Challenge:  

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Did you know that May 18th is "No Dirty Dishes Day"? This special day encourages people to take a break from doing dishes for the day and spend the time saved doing things for FUN.  So, let's keep your sink happy, use paper products and do your part by saying NO dirty dishes today!
So... for FUN use some patterned paper from your stash and create an any-occasion girly girl project." 

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "What! No Dirty dishes for only a Day?  My sink is used to being piled up just like my stash.  So let's choose some embellishments and/or bling (glitter, gems, sequins, ribbons, flowers, etc.) from your stash, and don't be afraid to pile it on your girly-girl project."  

Optional Twist:  If you have included embellishments and/or bling on your project you will earn another chance for our Random Draw. Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Trouble Maker's girly girl requirement, with or without bling, you are eligible to enter your project HERE  for the Stinkin' Inkers Challenge "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".  This is a monthly challenge and DTC will be participating starting Monday, May 17th through Sunday, May 30th.   

I used the sketch from Tuesday Mornings Sketches



  1. Love that chick with her sparkly tutu. Fun card! I like the idea of "no dishes day," too. Don't you think we could assign one day a week for that?

    1. Cheryl, I think we just just assign one day a week to do dishes —all the other days off!!!

  2. That is a really fun image, and definitely a good choice to make it into a card than to worry about dishes or cooking! Thanks for joining us at Double Trouble.
