I love a good joke, especially the kind that evokes a good belly laugh. You know, the side splitting guffaw, tears running and you can’t breathe laughter? I feel euphoric after a good laugh and always want more. My sister and I would try to make each other laugh all the time when we were kids, especially in church or other places where it was “inappropriate”! We would get the biggest kick out of making my straitlaced grandparents laugh. Memaw would have to tell Papaw to calm down! My kids knew from an early age, all they had to do was make us laugh and all would be right with our world. My husband says that he asked me out a second time because I laughed at his cheesy pickup line AND I had big boobs. *shrug* Laughter truly is good for the soul!
This is my kind of humor…
It reminds me of the videos of Gramma and Ginga!
I recreated this cartoon on an Easter card. I don’t like marshmallow peeps, yuck, but they are a kitschy celebration of spring. I won’t eat them, but I’ll make art with them!
The new challenge is up at Just for Fun Rubber Stamps and the theme is die cuts. I dusted off my Cuttlebug and cut the background panels using one of STAMPloration’s crazy running stitch rectangle dies and trimmed the green panel with Lawn Fawn’s stitched hillside borders. I stamped the blue background panel with JFF Rubber Stamps seashore grass silhouette for depth. The marshmallow bunnies were stamped on Club Scrap® card stock (don’t you love the patterned paper from the Delft collection?) and trimmed with detail scissors. I added some Diamond stickles for sparkle and a little bowtie that was an embellishment in Club Scrap® ‘s Trattoria kit. I added a three-part bow to make things a little more festive. (Watch this video to view the steps to create a perfect three-part bow for yourself!)
I created the speech bubbles in Photoshop Elements using digital elements from Club Scrap® ‘s Comics kit, printed them on white card stock and trimmed with detail scissors.
I like to add dimension with a little foam tape, so I popped up the Happy Easter speech bubble and dapper bunny with a few pieces.
I had a leftover bunny, so I gave him an Easter makeover. May I present…Sir Peepsalot!
My crochet skills came in handy! I chain stitched some gold wired string I had in my ribbon basket and added an over sized egg with some stickles to complete the necklace. My little Easter rapper needed some sunglasses, and the Tim Holtz Crazy Things stamp set had the perfect pair!
Life is better when you’re laughing! ♥
