We’re Cracking Up in the Sisterhood

2010 May 12

Ahhhh we all need those cards that will make us erupt in laughter, don't you think?  I love cards which crack me up.  Be it the image or the sentiment or both, I always seem to receive a funny card when I most need it.  And boy, do I need it this week!  

Since I didn't participate with my sisters in last weeks Sisterhood of Crafters challenge, still dealing with health issues and major stress at work, I dug out  my 'Old Age' stamp set from Sunday International to play along.

After much deliberating I chose this old fella:

SHC Micki 51310

I even used some of my ancient SU DSP….woohoo!  Instead of using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I used Memento Rich Cocoa to stamp the image and sentiment.  I then colored the old guy with copics and used Distress Ink pad & sponge to blend the edges.  (Image is stamped on Neenah Classic Super Smooth CS).  Added some clear buttons which I glued some scrap DSP onto.  And voila…. now come on, you gotta admit you'd laugh if you were to get this card, right?

For more awesome cards…..oh but wait, I'm getting ahead of myself.   Surely you figured out what our challenge is this week at the Sisterhood, right? 

This week's fun challenge is You Crack Me Up

So join us this week and get those humorous sentiments and image stamps out and for further inspiration and all the details, be sure to head over to the Sisterhood of Crafters to check out what the rest of my sisters created.  It's sure to crack you up and don't forget to link up your projects.
