Happy Sunday—Happy PALM Sunday—Happy APRIL! It’s proving to be a beautiful day here in SE PA, I hope it’s nice where you are too! Today’s Paper Players theme is hosted by Anne Marie, and it’s a good one! Whaddya think?
When I first saw the challenge, I thought “UH OH!” I don’t do “funny” too well. As a child, I can remember my mom ALWAYS buying funny cards for my dad! And I rarely do---not that I don’t have a good sense of humor, or love a good joke, but I usually make a more thoughtful card! But I did dig around and found some “punny” stamps---I must have used them at one time---and dusted them off for my Tickle your Funnybone card:
I had just printed out these fun digital papers, and I thought they would go with my “chicken up on you” creation! Just a little note about the sentiment; my friend Marisa just had on her blog that she was nervous about cutting her stamps apart to use a partial sentiment. This clear stamp sentiment was on one line, but I snipped it in half so that it would be easier to fit in the corner. It was much simpler to ink and line up the two separate sets of words than trying to ink just a portion of the stamp, and it’s very easy to line the two pieces back up. So don’t be afraid!! Fun colors, a fun sketch #234 from the Mojo Monday blog, and I was on my way:
Really, this was a simple card to make….I just used some layers, a couple brads and paper-pieced my chicks; the most challenging part was drawing in the grass with my marker. Oh, I added a heart from the Owl Builder punch, and a tiny little rhinestone accent. I know just to whom this card is going, too! I hope YOU can play along with us---we all need a good funny-bone tickle now and then, so I can’t wait to see what you create. You can find all the details over at the Paper Players blog, and while you’re there, you can laugh at the what the other designers have come up with. I have already gotten a hoot out of some of the cards! And I am REALLY excited because my sweet friend Shirley, at Cute Stuff by Shirley, (who has the FUNNIEST, CUTEST cards) is our guest designer!!! So be sure to check out her card as well!
