Make us Laugh

So the people over at Ike's Art are having a challenge called Make Us Laugh, I took this sexy image and added this funny saying from Riley &Co.  "1 day of coal. 364 days of fun. (I'll take my chances)"  HA!!  That's awesome.  I just love the look on this lady's face. That's totally something I can imagine her saying too.
Now, that's a little Sassiness that I love.  I also love the Halloween/goth type images that you see over at Ike's art too.  So many great stamps (also if you love birds, dogs,....there's lots like that as well).

So, hmm, question for the day? are you getting ready for any special events that you are crafting for?  my sister in law is having a baby.  I have a couple birthdays in April/may.  I do love to make a few cards for Easter time, but I am definitely running behind on that!  How about  you?  weddings? already making Christmas cards? what's your current topics?

Have you seen the winner list?  it's been updated!  Drop by and check it out!! There's a link on the right hand side of the blog.  There's now TWENTY NINE winners that I haven't heard from so GO CHECK THE LIST!! then email me!

Smexy! I love this image, and I LOVE the die cut! I would love to see your die library! It must be massive!

Any chance you would do a series of blogs on how you organize your supplies?

L. Kent said...

Finishing up swaps I signed up for, but taxes are now the top project. After that it will be more swaps for inspiration and intense scrapbooking!

barbara macaskill said...

This is AWESOME!! LOVE the sexy image and the sentiment ROCKS!!! I hope you win! I am working on Birthday cards for my son and grandson at the moment then onto My granddaughter's third Birthday party decorations and card!

Susan Slomski said...

What a sexy image and I love it!!! What you did with it I love too. I am also waiting on a new baby. My grandson will be here any day now (actually thought Valentine's Day but my daughter said the baby thinks it is too cold here and won't be born till spring..LOL). I am more sewing than doing any kind of paper craft though. I was going to make a quilt for him but have so much to do before hand I may just have to make the quilt later.

Larisa said...

It is really gorgeous. I love the bright colors.

riliska said...

Love the image and your gorgeous colouring. The papers and die cut are just perfect.

Cindy said...

What a Chickadee!! Wolf whistles for sure on this one. I am thinking of doing something shabby chic for Mother's Day thought I better start looking for what I want on it and let them creative juices flow.

Your card is so neat. Lol. Made me laugh. The sentiment is perfect. Right now, I'm not doing any special events. My main focus is learning new things and I think I'm going to start entering some challenges to get my blog rolling more. That's what's in the plans anyway.

Karenladd said...

This made me smile and wow, your coloring is amazing!! As for crafting events, I am trying to get an early start on Easter and spring birthdays but will probably still be scrambling last minute!

Jackie Trinder said...

Amazing shading! Just finished my Valentine Cards and will start working on my Easter cards. I have a sister-in-law with a St. Patrick's Day birthday, so need to make a "combo" card.

Trying to get ready for my 40th B-day party. hubby wants to throw me one so I get to decorate it or else I would have nothing but black balloons, lol.

Emily Thubbron said...

Great card. Love the sentiment. Your coloring is fantastic. Thanks for joining us at Ike's World for our Make Us Laugh challenge.

Shelley said...

Wow, love this image and the card! No special events coming up, one local art contest. Feedback: The contest blog was great, but I wanted to view more of this artists images so I visited the actual website and everything was so tiny I could not read or see the images. Using IE and it will not let me enlarge the pages so I will try again with firefox when I have time to download the flash player required.

Pat said...

Holley, that card ROCKS! I love Ike's Art. I think my crafting goal is to own ALL her images. LOL
I just got word my DIL wants to host a gender reveal party...at my house! She's letting me have free rein on the invites, and I am sharing the rest (favors, thank you cards, etc.) with her mom, who also crafts. (My son married well, as my DIL crafts too)

Lucie H said...

Thats a very sexy card. I love the teal colors you used.
