However, before we get to that, I simply MUST share with you this story. You see, it is not often that women get arrested for domestic abuse. It probably should happen far more often, but it is rare. However, in this case, my friends, the Police were there and ready to take this woman in! She was attacking her husband, for goodness sakes!
Here's a quote from the Chicago Tribune...
After that, she reached for the box of desserts and directed a fusillade of snack cakes at his head and body, her husband told police. Several of the confections apparently hit their mark, as the man's head and shirt were smudged with icing when officers arrived, according to a police report.
Apparently when the cops showed up, she spoke 'aggressively' to them and they arrested her for domestic battery and the judge set bail at $10,000. For reals. The husband claimed that he was concerned for his safety. REALLY??? Mind you, I would NEVER make light of domestic abuse, as it is a very real problem and men are often abused by women and the police don't even take it seriously. This actually happened to someone close to me. HOWEVER...cupcakes are not a weapon and they don't count. The story is, however, a wee bit hilarious. Just say'n.
NOW...onto sketch GOODNESS! We are getting prepared for Christmas, folks! Today each member of the Skipping Stones Design Team is featuring one of our Christmas sets to get you ready for the holidays! AND...they are on sale in the store, too! YAY for good deals on stamps!!!
I chose to use Christmas Swirls for my card today along with Cristina's fabulous sketch!
I stamped the image in red and black and then cut it out and cut it in half to mount on my card. I folded the ribbon and stamped the sentiment just below that with Momento ink. The patterned paper is from Echo Park. This sketch pretty much ROCKED! You HAVE to check it out over at SSD and then check out what the other girls created and THEN create YOUR OWN card using the sketch and link it up on the Sketch #98 post over on the Skipping Stones blog! And don't forget that Christmas Swirls and Wisemen are BOTH on sale this month! These are two FANTASTIC sets! Check them out!
In the meantime, avoid throwing cupcakes at people, as you could get arrested. Unless you throw them at me. 'Cause I'll just eat 'em. Just say'n.
