ALCM Funny Card Challenge


I wasn’t going to play the A La Card Monkey challenge this week, which was to make a humorous card!  I just couldn’t think of anything to stamp---too busy, too many other things on my mind.  But I did remember, (just before the deadline), that I had a cute stamp from CHF that I thought would be perfect for my weight-watching, Curves-going friends.  It’s a big image so I made a monochromatic card, keeping it easy:


Unfortunately, I did not realize it was a SKETCH CHALLENGE also, as I used Taylor’s sketch #136


What an idiot I am!  So sorry! 

It takes a few seconds for the “story” of this image to sink in……but I just think the expression on this lady’s face is priceless—what must she be thinking as she is stepping on the scale!  Her purse is flying, her hands are up in the air and the dog just thinks he’s having a great time! 


Here’s the inside sentiment:


So that’s the extent of my humorous stamps!!!  Thanks for visiting!

  • Stamps:  Weighty Matters, CHF
  • Paper:  VV, Bravo Burgundy, Botanical Gazette DP

And a photo from my DD:  kids start using technology earlier & earlier these days!!

  1. Your card is so cute and I love the idea behind that image! The expression on Cassidy's little face requires a caption!! She looks like she just received an email telling that her stocks plunged or something LOL I love how trendy she always looks too! :)

  2. Wonderful Card! I enjoyed even though I dont have a big dog to blame my scale troubles on.

  3. Note to self: next time I step on the scale, DON'T believe the results. A German Shepherd is probably messing with me. Noted. HeeHee! What a fun stamp! Thanks for the smile! :)

  4. Girl I did the same thing... Lol. I loaded my picture of my "Happy Camping" Card and then when I looked at Terry's Card then the picture with the Seal... I was "Darm it" and re-made the card to fit the Sketch. I think your the card is very funny.. thanks for doing a Card for A La Card Monkey.


  5. It's a really cute card! I really don't mind that you didn't follow the sketch. lol

    Shirley did the same thing for her card - she created it, then realized she didn't follow the sketch, ripped her card apart and repositioned the elements to fit the sketch! It happens to all of us!!!

    Thanks for playing along! Have a great day,

    A La Card Monkey

  6. I just love this card! I am still chuckling! Have a great day!

  7. CUUUTE card! LOVE that image! (Tell Cassidy to give me a call!)
