Mid-week throw down...punny cards.

This week's challenge for OWH is punny cards.  And if you know me, you have to know I would want to be in on this one.  I'd say one fourth of my cards are word plays...and probably half of my stamps are funny.  I can't help myself.

Here is one I made recently that will be on the way to Sandy soon in a box from East Woods Presbyterian Church where I conspire with my Vancouver BFF stamping buddies, Esther and Ellen (the E Sisters), and others, to make cards to send to OWH.  They're not really sisters, but we are all sisters in our hearts.  (We call ourselves S.I.S.T.R.Rs - Sisters in Stamping That Really Rock.   OK, it's corny, I know.)





The fox stamp is from Inky Antics, and the sentiment is computer generated.
The ink is CTMH Autumn Terracotta, the DP is "Groovy" from KI Memories, and the CS is from my stash.




 I made this one yesterday:


The fan is from Viva Las Vegas Stamp that I bought at the store in Vegas!  It has thousands of stamps and you can spend a couple of hours in there just ogling the stamps.  They have a fantastic web page too.  Go check it out.  http://www.vivalasvegastamps.com

The  sentiment is B Line Designs that I purchased 2 weeks ago up in Tukwila, WA at Impress by South Center Mall.  We were all anticipating the Super Bowl Game on Feb. 2nd,  and of course, they had a large display of sporting stamps and papers.  I thought this one would be a perfect pairing with the fan stamp.  If you're in the area and haven't visited this store, you MUST go.  Drool.  Sandy Allnock taught a class on fancy folds that I took there.  She is teaching more classes each month, so do go check out their website too.  http://www.impresscardsandcrafts.com

The papers were in my stash and the orange was embossed with my Cuttle Bug.  This is the very last of that cute ribbon I had in a drawer.  I like to think those flowers are dandelions and you know that is in keeping with the theme of the mighty wind the fan is blowing too, right?

Thanks for stopping by.  :)

  2. I really like the "dandelion" ribbon on the second card with the fan stamp and the great combo of papers / layout on the fox card.

    1. I am so sad because that is the last of it. But it's been languishing in my drawer for years and I can't remember where in the world I got it. Thanks for commenting.

  5. Hi, I wanted to see if I can find your name. I will just call you TK. Thanks for leaving nice comments on my blog. Your cards are funny and making me smile. I have to admit that I am not good at humorous expressions. I should make one, too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Seongsook. I've enjoyed your cards for a long time and just now getting around to commenting much on folks blogs. I think it was Cora that mentioned she was going to try and comment more, so I am too! My first name is Teresa, but I got by TK, so please do call me that. Thanks for your sweet comments too. :)
