LF WashMach Bday Shaker Card

Had fun making this birthday shaker card. Stamped the socks multiple times. Paper pieced the socks by fussy cutting and gluing the rainbow of colors stripes onto the socks. CASEd a card by Kelly Marie and you can see link of Kelly M. below.

We were going to replace our washing machine & dryer. The washing machine sometimes does not start after the lid is closed & filled with water. You have to nudge the washing machine and/or lift the lid and close again to get it to start. Also, sometimes it does not complete the rinse cycle and you have to move the dial. Have had our Maytag units since 2002. We had looked at new Maytag but figured that the ones we have still work even though you have to check on them to see if they have stopped.
