Lucy's New Year Sketch Challenge Week - Day 6

I have no idea what I am doing! I received this Polka Dot Person (and it's Plaid mate) stamp from Hero Arts in my surprise package win for the last Blog Hop, and I am truly grateful, lots of other spectacular stamps accompanied these two.  BUT, for the life of me, I have absolutely Zero Creative Juices when it comes to figuring out how to use this stamp (and its mate)!  So, bear with my very simple design, (can I even call it a design?), and you can laugh with me too, or give me ideas, or else sometime soon I will have to give these two stamps away to a better home (sorry Hero Arts, it's not you, it's me!).

Wait for it!  Don't fall over laughing, ok, here it is:

Paper: Hero Arts Notecard, PTI cardstock
Ink: Hero Arts Chalk Ink - Punch, Versafine Onyx Black
Stamp: Hero Arts, PTI (sentiment)
Other: Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Sticker (the "U"), Glossy Accents, Dimensional adhesive

That's it!  All of it! After a lot of deliberation, this is the best I could come up with for Lucy's Day 6 Sketch which you can see HERE.   I may have stretched the interpretation a bit, and I did not feel like sewing or doodling around the edge of the notecard - I don't think that there was anything that "I" could come up with to make this better.  However, I am sure that there are many crafters out there who would have had lots of awesome ideas!  Please share them.

No explanations required, I simply added lots of Glossy Accents to the "Person", and adhered the sentiment piece with dimensional adhesive.  When I was done I laughed because it looks like a construction worker who instead of holding up a "STOP" sign is holding an "I MISS U" sign!

Hopefully you get a good laugh out of it to end your evening if you are on this side of the world!  Thank you for putting up with my 3 posts in one day!

Brenda, your card is really, really, really cute! And yes, YOU (actually your comments)made me laugh out loud. I had to share it with my husband, because of your hilarious description.
Have fun creating.

Love how this turned out! I thought I commented on this must be on flickr. Simple, but still makes a statement!
