Hi all! I am back! We had an amazing time at the cabin, the weather was perfect and I went to the beach 6 days in a row! I am such a beach bum and I loved it! We had a lot of fun together as a family and my inlaws too for a few days! Last week was full of a lot of summer fun also, a wedding, a birthday party, bbq's with friends and strawberry picking with 11 kids! Oh just to let you know boiling water takes out strawberry stains!
While I was out at the cabin I made some cards for kids for Jennifer McGuire's card drive . Just before I went away she had some examples of cards to make and suggested jokes. I loved this idea, it made it so much easier! Here they are:
To find the jokes I searched the image of my stamp, for this I searched eggs and got a few jokes. Because I was at the cabin I just free hand wrote them out with a black gel pen. I also put glossy accents on the egg! Since it's fun (and I am curious and would like to know if it was me) I may as well share the jokes I used:
What did the eggs do when the light turned green?
How do comedians like there eggs?
funny side up!
What day do eggs fear most?
Fry-day! (I thought that this one worked best with the image!)
How do eggs get up a mountain?
they scrambled up!
I love these fish cards! They were so simple but yet fun to make. Perfect for making with the limited supplies I brought to the cabin! I stamped them and than colored them in with my derwent and prisma pencils, than glued a googly eye and glossy accents for bubbles! There were a lot of fish jokes to pick from, here are the ones I used:
What fish is the most valuable?
Why is it so easy to weigh fish?
Because they have their own scales!
What is the best way to communicate with a fish?
Drop it a line!
Why did the fish cross the road?
Because someone threw it!
After making my bee cards from my last post I had some leftover yellow and black embossed paper so I came up with this simple design! Lots of great bee jokes to pick from too!
What kind of bees hum and drop things?
A fumble bee (my fav joke)
How does a queen bee get around her hive?
Why do bee's hum?
Because they have forgotten to words!
What do bee's chew?
On Friday night we had some friends over for dinner. Kate and I had a chance to craft together and we made cards for Grace for another card drive of Jennifer McGuire's. Here is the card I made (I also sent her one of each of the other cards):
And here is the card that Kate made, it's amazing! For my flickr friends I helped her upload it to the Hero Arts group so go give her some love here
I called Kate that morning to ask her if she wanted to make cards for Grace that night and she also brought some cards she made before so I thought I would share them:
I told Kate that she should start a blog, isn't she talented?
I also asked Ariel if she wanted to make a card for Grace and gave her a white card and she came back with this:
So cute, can you see my scraps in there? Someone raids my stash, but I had a lot of old stuff that I never used anymore! Ariel was so excited to send her card to Grace. When I asked her what she would like to write inside she said "Not to be afraid and that I love her" That touched me. I didn't know if I should write that so instead we wrote that we hope she has a fun day.
Well this was quite a long post! Thanks for reading it!
