Thursday Catch-up!!

Due to me having a minor accident yesterday I didn't get to making any cards at all. :O
On putting my ironing board up I trapped my little finger in the probably heard the scream over there. I have never felt pain like it and cried like a baby.
So I am now catching up as it is ok just bruised.

365 Cards Day 130 - That Tickles Me!
To make a humourous card that will hopefully raise a smile if not a laugh.
Image - download in Pink Petticoat sale
Colouring medium - mix of Copics & PM's
Brown card - Bazzill Bling
Yellow card - Bazzill Basics
Scalloped base card and pearls from my stash.
Circles cut with Nesties and punches
Sentiments - actually found out how to make these in Word with a little trial and error and am pleased as punch. Fonts are by 2 Peas

365 Cards Day 131 - Ad Inspired
Lovely advert that we had to draw inspiration from for our card. This ad. featured Dr. Seuss shower curtains.
When my daughter was born in 1966 my sister gave me the whole set of Dr Seuss books for her and how I loved to read those stories, they lasted through having my 2 boys also, but what ever happened to them I will never know. Such wonderful books.
I drew inspiration from the colours and the fish. Having no stamps I googled images.
Ingredients :-
Images - Googled
Blue & White paper - recycled from the packing off my white card
Red & White paper - Red card with hand punched white dots added
Pale blue card - recycled from Insurance Company folder
Fishes bubbles - same punch to cut circles from irridescent blue paper
Sentiment - PSX stamp
Base card from stash

I think this card says something about the way I feel.

So there you are 2 for the price of 1 today. :-)
