Stuff Week, Day 5: Hey, how about a card (& a giveaway)?



Okay, so technically it’s day six, but who’s counting? I hate to do this to you, but I’m going to share a recycled project—one that I’ve already featured on the Creating Keepsakes blog.

What’s the deal? Well, I used one of the happiest stamp sets around to make this card and My Cute Stamps has agreed to give a set away. So, this means a repeat (if you read the CK blog, that is).



This silly card was designed for my awesome card group. We were asked to make "humorous birthday cards," which is more difficult than it may sound. I hope this mades you chuckle.







The design was inspired by this video…





Which was inspired by old videos like this...

one of my favorites:
There are two penguins in the bathtub, one looks at the other and says "will you pass the bar of soap?" and the penguin says, "What do I look like, a type writer?"

hahaha
I know, it makes no sense but I think that's why it makes me laugh. My little sister told it to us and it's sort of become a family joke now! :)

Ohmigoodness... too funny! My favorite joke is MUCH too long to post on a blog. LOL. It's one of those story jokes. You know those? It's funny. And kinda... umm... crazy. And some may find it inappropriate. Well, it *does* have a word in it that some may find... inappropriate. Then again, an anatomy teacher would not... tee hee.

I work at an elementary school so I hear funny things all of the time, but this story seriously makes me giggle. Thanks for the opportunity...heart these stamps so much, oh the possibilities!!
A mother was preparing dinner one evening because the families preacher was coming over for dinner. She asked her 4 year old daughter to help her out by going and getting Mommy's special napkins. Moments later the doorbell rang and the Mom went to get it. Upon returning to the dining room with the preacher she found that her daughter had placed panty-liners around each place setting. Mortified she pulled them off and pulled her daughter aside to ask why she had put those out. Her daughter then said, "you said they were your napkins that you only use for special things!"
hehehe-can you only imagine, it kills me jut thinking about it. Gotta love kids!!

A funny joke that makes me laugh is
A lady brings her sick cat into the vet in the doctor comes in looks at it and says there is nothing he can do for it. The lady did not want give up that easy so asked him to do some tests on her cat, so the doctor agrees. He leaves the room and comes back with a cat and a dog and says there is nothing he can do for her cat. The lady says that you have not did any tests yet and the doctor replied "i JUST DID A CAT SCAN AND DID LAB WORK".
