I know this has been around for a while and that many of you may have seen it, but it tickles me every time I read it so I though I’d share it here.  It was initially penned by a lady named Jane and can be found on the free site Verses4cards.


She learned to stamp on Monday
her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner….
so away out we went to dine.

She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
she says they are a must….
they really are quite lovely
but there was no time to dust.

On Wednesday it was birthday cards
she claims that chalking’s fun
shading, blending and water-colouring
but the laundry wasn’t done.

Her card swap was on Thursday
she had to use green, blue and red,
it was obvious she was really engrossed
when she failed to make the bed.

It was Shaker cards on Friday
using techniques that she just adores,
what a pity she then failed to notice
the crumbs dropped all over the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
my wife can stamp her hours away
and the house will still be neat.

Well, already it is Sunday
and my forehead’s feeling damp
cos I’ve cursed, and raved and ranted
for the Maid has learned to stamp!!
