Favorite TV show

Today's challenge was to make a card inspired by your favorite TV show.

DH and I love to watch sports, mostly baseball and football, and animal shows.  Our favorite animal shows are on cable......Dr. Pol, and Dr.K's Exotic Animals.  Both Dr.s deal with farm animals, so I chose the following.......

Of course, I couldn't just make a card without some humor, so inside it says,

"You are YUMMY, and so are lamb chops!"

This will go to one of our grands.

The card has a layer of acetate between the two sections of printed sheep paper, and the rest of the saying is under the panel.  Thanks for looking.

Brads today! (CCEE below)

The challenge today over at SplitCoastStampers is to use brads or eyelets.   Here's my card:

This is already in the mail to Nick, Erin's boyfriend for the past 6 years.  He is a Mechanical Engineer who spends his down time working on cars.  I think he will get a kick out of this card and what it says....

"They couldn't fix my brakes, so I had them make the horn louder."

Thanks for looking.

CCEE1913 Pencils

Sketch Challenge Wednesday

I love Wednesdays at SplitCoastStampers.  The sketches are always fun, and get me to use my "thinking cap".  Here's the sketch this week:

Here's what I made:

 immediately thought of a rainbow, so of course SU's Magical Day set was just the thing.  This will go to our DGD Sam.  Inside it says, "You, my sweet, are more wonderful than unicorns and sparkles combined."

Right after I finished this card, I had another idea, so this is what I came up with using the same sketch:

Because I usually make humorous cards, this one says, "We are all mature until someone gets out the bubble wrap."  This will go to one of our grands.  Thanks for looking today.

Teapot Tuesday

The last Tuesday of each month is a challenge called a "tickle", where we make a card and send it to someone in our group.  Today's challenge was to make a card with a surprise inside, and it was to be humorous.  How right up my alley, you say???!

Here's the card I made:

Not a very good picture.  I really need to do it again.  Anyway, it was also for the Color Challenge at SplitCoastStampers (pink, sea foam, and espresso), with an extra of designer paper, which is inside.

Speaking of inside, here it is:

The little glasses of wine are so cute......from SU.  I love this saying.....always makes me giggle.

On Sunday, I will find out to whom my card goes, and it will be a surprise in the mail.  Doesn't that sound like fun?  It always is!

Thanks for looking.  Have a terrific day

CCEE1912 Surprise Element

Next week is National Smoke and Mirrors Day!  This cellbration is based on magicians' illusions, where they make objects disappear or disappear with retracting mirrors and confusing bursts of smoke.  Kelly challenges us to wave our magic wands and create a card with a surprise element.

The popped up cupcake is the surprise element on the inside of my card.  I placed a picture of the front so you could see the fun birthday saying.

CCEE1911 Shoes

Kelly tells us:

Tomorrow is National Shoe the World Day.  Many teens and children around the world do not have a pair of shoes to wear, and despite the climate or terrain, they walk barefoot.  Let's create a card using any type  of shoe - cowboy boots, heels, flip-flops, to help the awareness to donate any shoes you may no longer need.

CCEE1910 Name Day

Kelly is our hostess for the month of March.

Monday was Fun Facts about Your Name Day.  What does your name mean?  Briefly research the  meaning of your name and create a card.  If you can't find your name directly, create a card based on a few letters IN your name.

My name, Anne, comes from the Hebrew, and means "grace".  If you knew me, you would laugh your head off!!!

I love this SU image.  I think she defines the word grace in her lovely pose.
