The Something Completely Different challenge this month is to make 'thrinchies' (three inch squares) and the theme this week is Men. I rummaged around in my stamps to see what kind of 'men' I had in there and came across this one which I got in a charity stamp mixed bag. My brain worked something like this: Men...bicycle = that old 70s women's lib adage "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle"

I did go through a bit of a women's lib phase e.g. reading Spare Rib and wearing dungarees (only because they were fashionable) but I never was able to give up men!

Distress Inks (damsels in distress?) in Peeled Paint, Worn Lipstick and Milled Lavender.


  1. Good job you stayed on reasonable terms with men - could have been tricky in your household otherwise! I love this quirky little thrinchie - fab job!

  2. lol I was thinking the same as Joanne regarding the men in your house!! roflxx

    Great Thrinchie and I love the colour scheme - I've got that stamp I think its by rubadubadoo....


  3. LOL what a great comment Janice! Dungaree wearer here too - they were extremely comfortable.

    Great card too! :)

  4. Hehe, that's the perfect quote for that image. :oD

  5. hahahaha I love that saying!!!! I loved my dungarees too! Gorgeous thrinchie hon XXX

  6. Oh! Absolutely fabulous love it! :)
    I had some dungerees too...they were pink!!! Don't think the colour quite fitted the womens lib ethos LOL

  7. Its a great stamp! lovin' how you used the quote LOL.

  8. He He!! Made me smile!! Great stamps but that sentiment rocks!!
