Funny?

Here's one of my cards from this months issue of Papercraft Inspirations magazine - my brief was to make funny birthday cards for a female, for the Quick Cards section of the magazine. The cards in this section of the magazine have to be designs that the readers can reproduce in about thirty minutes, so another challenge - this was quite a challenge altogether actually, most humorous birthday cards have a punchline on the inside of the card, and obviously this wouldn't do for a magazine publication, but I managed to come up with some - here's my favourite!


I have spent a weekend cleaning and cooking - we have friends coming to stay today, so glitter has been abandoned, stray bits of paper swept up, sticky pads removed from the floor........


I have also found another passion. Does anyone play Draw Something on their phone or iPad? Every ten minutes or so, I dash off to scribble another drawing, it's addictive. If anyone wants to join me, my user name is Enfysc - you will be astonished, amazed and amused at how bad I am at drawing stuff!

I love the greeting on your card - it's really funny. Think I may pinch this idea for my daughter's birthday if you don't mind. Pat x

Love your card, too funny. It gave me a little chuckle and that is a very good thing.
I don't have a "fancy" phone, just an old flip one. Is this something that can be done on the computer? Draw something? Maybe I need to check into it. Not that I need another thing to be obsessed with. LOL

Adorable card and I love that sentiment! I play but all I can figure out are the 1 point words, I don't even know what or who most of the 3 point words are!
