**This is my second post for the day. To see my Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #7 post scroll down or click here.**
Happy April Fools' Day! My awesome teammate Nora (from A Creative Touch
) has organized a super fun blog hop, which starts here
. We each have a "punny" card to share and some of us (including yours truly) even have PRIZES
to give away. :)
I think this is such a fun way to celebrate. Much better than the playing pranks kind! I only did that once...and I still remember it and feel bad. I believe I was six. Ice in my parents bed (my little mind didn't think about the fact that it would melt and soak down into the mattress) and mustard in the white tub...why, I don't know. It probably goes without saying that letting mustard sit for a long time leaves a pretty tough stain and a completely soaked mattress takes a really long time to dry. My poor mother.
Anyway, back to a much happier topic...cards. We each picked a previous challenge board and created a punny card based on the elements. I picked Challenge One
and used the diagonal from the top: gold, embossing, shaped frame.
Can you tell I'm having a hard time letting go of Easter? I feel this way after most holidays...they always seem to sneak up on me, so I'm not quite ready to move on when they are over. And these bunnies from Clearly Besotted's Woodland Kisses are so cute, I couldn't let the season pass without them making an appearance. When I finished my card I thought the pun was cute, but not really comical. My husband agreed. So another card was in order.
And this one cracks me up. I'm fairly proud of myself because while my husband can dish out quick funny comments and puns like you would not believe, I am what you might call funny challenged. I laugh easily, but I am not funny. All of my funniest moments are complete accidents and usually extremely high on the embarrassment scale.
My husband even laughed when I showed him the pun. Yay! I love how this one turned out. I smooshed the octopus "ink"and then added a distress ink blended, water splattered octopus on top. Isn't he cute? It's been a long time since I pulled out Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Sea, so it made me extra happy to dust off another long-time-no-use set. Hey, maybe I should start LTNUS, like Darnell
has NBUS. :)
And speaking of Lawn Fawn, they are one of the cutest punny-filled stamp companies I know, so the prize I'm giving away is their Let's BBQ stamp set. I figure since I'm always behind, I'll help you be one step ahead for fun summer cards, although really you can use this set all year. Just leave a comment on my blog by 12 pm (CST) on Sunday, April 3rd. I'll randomly choose a winner from comments here and announce the winner on Tuesday, April 5th.
Laughter is good for the soul (it also burns calories...win-win!), so here's the line up so you can keep hip hopping along and filling your day with happiness. :)
