You’re A W{anchor} Card


So…while on vacation, I found a basket full of clearance cards. I bought one, it was $1. I had to put my own spin on it.

I dry embossed the royal cardstock, then fussy cut the wave edge. I pulled out a crochet hook and did a simple chain stitch for the anchor chain using metallic thread.

Here is the original card, from the company kissmekwik in the UK:

And, from The Urban Dictionary, I chose the 2 variations that most match my interpretation of the word “wanker”:

UK/Aus/NZ slang for:

2. Someone with a faintly sociopathic lack of regard for other people; see also arsehole.

3. Someone useless, inefficient or time-wasting, especially in a place or work and/or position of responsibility.

  1. nice link on the word masturbate.. v helpful

  2. Thank you for the keeping me informed on the word, ‘wanker’. I shall make them the only official definition for the slang, once I become the next British monarch. In fact, that will be my first decree.

    • I hope you were not offended – I edited the post mid day, after Offspring3 alerted me that, *perhaps*, my original that included all 5 definitions was too much! I truly think of a “wanker” as an “arsehole”.

  3. ha,ha,ha. I am not. I did deduced something along those lines from the previous comments. If you said it, Kathy, it must be right.
