You're how old?

Hello it's Jane here with my 2nd humorous card to share some inspiration and encourage you to join our May challenge.
It's certainly funny that it is shared today, the day of the Royal Nuptials! 
This is my card, which is not a reference to the royal couple..😂..honestly
I have a step by step over on my blog showing how I made the background with a combination of stamping and dies.
I can't resist one last pun... and yes it has to be a wedding one for today;
" It was an emotional wedding...even the cake was in tiers"
....boom boom, it just had to be done! 
Enjoy your day, whatever you do,
Back soon,

Always Check The Bottom!

Good morning and happy Monday, it's Sue here with my second piece for our 'Humerous' challenge. It's been made with a mop up sheet and some scraps of card so it goes to prove that you must keep everything (until the floor gives way then maybe you can have a sort out)

I've used lots of PaperArtsy goodies, stamps and paints, and the fun sentiment is by Carmen's Veranda.
There are lots more details over on my blog so I'd love to see you over there.
Have a very happy day, and thanks very much for looking x

May 2018 - Be Humorous

 Welcome everyone to our May Challenge
Our theme this month is Be Humorous chosen by the lovely Monika

Hello everybody and welcome to our May challenge:
Be humorous!
This time I had the opportunity to be your hostess.
So please show us your humorous side and create something funny that makes us laugh!

As a first inspirational project, I made a card with a super funny PaperArtsy Zinski stamp.
I hope you like it! You can find more details on my blog!

Good morning and happy Tuesday. I love this fun challenge that Monika has chosen, and as I didn't use my Grumpy Penguins last year, they're having their first outing.

I think this Dylusions sentiment sums them up perfectly! For more photographs please pop on over to my blog - I promise to be more cheerful than this lot!

Monika has had a great idea with the theme of humour - I thought I should put this not so skinny cook out there....he makes me smile for sure! Hope you can join the challenge! Hugs rachel x

For this theme, it isn't so much a matter of what I did, but whoooo...

Come by my blog to read up on the details. You'll have a hoot, I promise!

Here is my entry for the challenge.

It really pushed me out of my comfort zone this month.  Join me over at my blog to see more about this project.
Happy crafting!

Welcome to the merry month May!
We were asked to be humorous, so I took a stamp with a fun sentiment and made this tag.

If you want to know, how I put this together and what the German words mean in English, please hop to my blog to see more.

I often use humour in my projects and I really love it.. I hope I succeed in giving you a chuckle today! 

This AJ page was made with model paste and a stencil, spray inks and more. If you are interested in how I made this the you can watch the movie or hop over to my BLOG.

I hope you enjoy ! I will be back soon with more inspiration !

May time, play time (well that's what I always sung at primary school!) I love this month, everything is bursting into life and there is colour everywhere. For this month's fun "humour" challenge I used this sentiment on a new baby card.
It always raises a smile 😍
I made a yupo paper with alcohol inks background. I would love to see you pop over to my blog here where I am sharing the details of how I made this.....plus the answer to this joke awaits...How do you get a baby astronaut to sleep....? There might be a few more awful jokes over there too! 😂
Bye for now,

I love creating projects with a bit of humour - the new Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers are the perfect accessory...

Please pop over to my blog for all the details! Have a great day xx

We all hope these projects from our Design Team bring a smile to your face and it's over to you now, create your Be Humorous project and link it below with the chance to win a £20 voucher to use on the Country View Crafts website. Thanks to everyone who took up the Pimp It Up! challenge last month. There are lots of upcycled entries and the winner will be announced soon.
