This week over at the Jingle Belles blog the ladies are working their funny bones! Because challenge day fell on April Fools Lauren and Stef put forth the following challenge: So yes....this week is Jingle Belles, Batman Smells...we're asking you to make a humorous card for the holidays.It can be a bit twisted, silly or just plain laugh-out-loud funny...just incorporate some holiday levity into your design.
I pretty much groaned in defeat when I saw the challenge. Those who know me in person know that I love to laugh and have a very sarcastic sense of humor. However when it comes to my cards I NEVER make/send any funny cards. I'm always so serious, and I figured I'd just have to sit out this challenge.
Yesterday I decided to go through my bin of misc Christmas stamps to see if I potentially had anything that could be deemed "funny", and I found this stamp that was given to me by my cousin a few years ago. I figured the caption could provide a chuckle and I'm sure that many folks could relate to it!
If you want to see some seriously gut busting cards, head over to the Jingle Belles blog and check out the submissions. I was giggling like mad yesterday!! (and I always try and comment on the other cards submitted, but my computer is being very temperamental right now so please dont think I'm ignoring anyone! I love all the inspiration provided by the different cards submitted!)
Here is what I came up with. Sorry the picture isnt that great..its snowing here today and the light in the house wasnt that great no matter where I set up! Thats ok, I ♥ me some snow!
Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: main image stamp by unknown, background snowflakes from SU Holiday Sampler
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, PP from S.E.I. Glitzmas
Ink: Black StazOn, Old Olive, various SU markers
Accessories: Old Olive ribbon, dimensionals
HAhahahAhahaHA! i think we can probably *ALL* relate to that one, a bit, eh?! awesome stamp & sentiment and i love the fun & pretty card you've built around it! (& a big well done, you for thinking outside the box, too!) :)ReplyDelete
So glad you pushed your funny bone boundaries and joined our jingle belles mayhem this week ... fantastic holiday card.ReplyDelete
I thought I was gonna sit this challenge out to...it was a toughie! Our cards are even funnier, I think, because they are so out of character for us :)ReplyDelete
I love it...we were thinking the same kind of thing on our JB cards:)ReplyDelete
Great card! Question: Do you know my mother-in-law? This is pretty much her mantra year 'round!ReplyDelete
funny! really funny! so true!ReplyDelete
I had no idea what I was going to do, either! Yours is fab!! At least you OWN a funny stamp and really ROCKED it! This is so good. Love how you kept the papers so "serious" with such a fun stamp & sentiment. Awesome! :)ReplyDelete
I'll second Lisa-papergrace's comment. That is how I am! lol! and WOW! I love this sentiment... that is going to be my tagline for the holidays... when they get here! Thanks for the creativity and the laugh!ReplyDelete
