One ringy dingy, two ringy dingy

     If you know what my title is talking about then you're old as dirt like me.  LOL  Just kidding.  :-)  I was just a little kid when Laugh In used to be on television, but I have no trouble at all remembering Lily Tomlin doing the switchboard lady Ernestine with her lips pouched and that nasally voice and snort.  There was no way I couldn't remember that when I saw this image.
     This is "How May I Direct Your Call" from this weeks new release from A Day For Daisies.  There are some really cool antique phones in there too.  This also marks the beginning of a new challenge for us at the ADFD blog.  This time we want to see calico on your creations.  We'd love to have you pay along  We had some amazing entries in the last challenge.  You can see all the DT projects there as well as all the challenge details.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

     Have an amazing Friday!

  28. Oh Ernestine Ernestine! LOL Don't you just love her snorts! LOL I can hear her now. LOL I always got a big kick out of Laugh In. (Although I was a bit older than "a little kid" in the late 60's. LOL sssshhhhh)

    Love your coloring, Girlie. I love how you always 'ground' your images with shading in varying shades. Looks great.

    See ya on the flipside. LOL
