That Tickles Me...

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards, is to make a silly, or funny card, one that 'tickles'.
This stamp is one that I don't get to use very often, so I couldn't resist. And, be honest, dear friends, haven't you even just once or twice wanted SO badly to mutter this sentiment (Put your big girl panties on and deal with it) to someone???

Anyway, this little stamp definitely tickles me!
Stamp: Stamps Happen
Ink: Versafine, Black
DP: Best Creation
CS: DCWV
Flower: Dazzlers by Petaloo
Another thing that tickles me is my blogging friend, Georgia, over at Gram's Place. Georgia sets her OWN challenges, and succeeds at them all! Her blog is so bright and cheery and fun - if you haven't been over to see her, please drop by. Sign up to follow while you are there - she is one very nice, and very fun lady! You will enjoy her blog!

DD was stung badly by something last night. She is pretty highly allergic, and we had several pretty frightening hours. I stayed up until a little after 3 a.m., and got back up with her around six, and she seemed like she was doing fairly well. She had to go on into work today, so I'll be curious to see how she is after a 12 hour manager on duty shift. A few hundred more grey hairs for mom!

Okay, I have procrastinated long enough. I'm off to my ladder to do some painting! I'll try to have something new for tomorrow! I've been working on a swap, and could post it, but then Chelsea and Suzanne wouldn't be surprised!!!

Take care, everyone!

I'm pretty sure someone has said that to ME!!! What a funny card, I love it.
Thanks for the heads up about Gram's place I'm headed there now...

Great Card. I have that exact stamp and don't use it nearly enough as it is so time consuming to color in.

OMGosh this made me laugh right out loud! I've not heard that sentiment before, but you can bet I'll be using it in my future conversations! What a great card and your image for this challenge was right on the mark! Too funny! I'm sorry for what you and your poor daughter went through! I do hope she is all right now! Best, Curt

OMG, I LOVE this card such a great sentiment, Oh I would love to send this to some people and to myself on occasion, but not to often :), Great job.

Georgia said...

Love the sentiment!

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Yes, I've wanted to say that many times! Sometimes I have to remind myself to do the same...

I do hope your daughter is okay... what a thing! Allergic reactions are nothing to mess around with, for sure.

So what are you painting? Maybe it will say in your last post, which is where I'm headed.

Hugs and smiles dear friend.
Lisa

Such a fun card Patti!
Will go around Gram's place now.
Be careful on that ladder!
Hope your daughter feels better.
I woke up this morning to find a bee in my bedroom, we slept with it. I remember chasing it yesterday and i thought it went out but this morning it was there!
How come they are able to come in but never can find their way out!
Hugs xx

Suzanne said...

No preposting swaps!!! That would be a total bummer!! I think I need that saying stamp. I've wanted to say that to a lot of people lately. Keep us updated about your daughter.
