CCM 88 Humour

As today is the 1st April and April Fool’s Day, our hostess Suze decided to choose humour for her theme at Crafty Cardmakers this week. Suze would like to see your humourous creations. That can be funny/amusing images, or funny quotes. Anything that you find amusing share with us.

We are sponsored by Di’s Digi Downloads with a $10 gift voucher and also by Hobby Art Stamps with a prize of two stamps, which you can see here.

CCM 88 Humour

I used another Bugaboo image for my card, she is one of the Gus and Stella range, this one called Aged To Perfection, and they come with amusing comments as well, but I made my own version of a Stephen Fry quotation. This is intended for my older Sister. Wish me luck when I hand it over!

The background is another of the gorgeous new Embossalicious folders from Crafters Companion, onto which I have matted some paper from the Papermania Lucy Cromwell stack. Stella has been coloured with promarkers and the sentiment was printed on my pc. I know her skin is a little sallow, but in my experience ladies of Stella’s Age didn’t used to come with Essex tans! The gorgeous Prima flower is from my stash.
