Ross and the Leather Pants


Do you have (or will have) that one iconic tv show that defines our late teens and mid twenties?  For me, it is Friends. The catchy tune, the characters that didn't change, hidden meanings, the lessons learned. My all-time favorite episode?  The one with Ross and the Leather Pants (season 5, episode 11 "The One With All The Resolutions"... here's a link, I dare you not to laugh.) Still chuckling now...
So many of the Friends episodes ran through my mind as soon as I pulled together this sentiment and card for Wplus9's Color Cue Challenge. Ahh, love it when cards make me feel a bit younger again...

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Yellow), (White) Office Max

Patterned Paper: (Green) SU
Stamps: (Brothers and Sisters, All Occasion Tags) Wplus9
Ink: (Basic Gray Pigment) SU
Embellishments: (Sticker) Heidi Swap- thanks Kelly!, (Gray Grosgrain Ribbon) Offray

  2. Yes! Friends it would be for me too! My fave scene is when Monica and Rachel are fighting about something (don't remember what now) and Phoebe gets in between them and grab one of their ears and says something like "If we were in prison, you'd be my bitches". I laugh so hard when I see that! I'm laughing now :)

    This is a lovely color combo and you've really run away with it! Great job girl!

  5. I started laughing just reading the title of your post - that's my all-time fave expisode, too, and I usually start giggling anytime I see lotion & baby powder sitting next to each other on a shelf (They're forming a paste!")

    Lovely card, btw. I really like the subtletly of the white on the pale yellow
