Just a Litter Note...

Since April is Humour Month the Paper Players challenge this week is Tickle Your Funnybone.  I like silly puns and Paper Smooches images seem to be perfect for these types of cards.  I used the cat from Chubby Chums for this one.



 Tomorrow is a public holiday here in Bermuda and instead of flying kites (see this post for an explanation) Luis and I will be carrying on with our house painting.  I have the dubious honour of completely emptying the Craft Cave.  Oy vey!!  Any bets on how far I get before I get distracted and start making something??


Cardstock:  (Kraft) PTI, (White) Bazzill, (Night of Navy) SU
Stamps:  (Cat from Chubby Chums) Paper Smooches, (Letters from Smitty's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko, (Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango) Stampin' Up
Copics:  YR07, YR04, RV13, B39

CUTE!! I love this, Jen! So creative and that sentiment totally makes me giggle.

Good luck with your mission tomorrow - very difficult one to do, I know. But think, the sooner you do it, the quicker your stuff will be back in the room once it is all painted. Hope the distractions don't prove too distracting! :)

oh WOW Jen. This card is sooooooo cute. I love that little Chubby Chums cat. Now I'm going to have to go find where you got him from!

Good luck with your painting/moving...that doesn't sound like so much fun :-(.

So you want a time estimate or a fraction? I'm going to guess you will hold out until halfway. I have faith in ya!
I love this card - pretty sure my cat did that exact dance this morning while waiting for breakfast. And pun? Yay!

Adorable, Jen - love the color of those critters. Looks like they are having way too much fun. Sorry you have a weekend of clearing & painting, but the results will be well worth it. You can have fun with it, I bet.

Any cards with a cat is awesome in my book! How's your boot camp thingy going? Done any burpees yet?

Lindsey said...

Eek! How cute is this!!! Love the little paw prints... sort of like what my cat leaves behind in litter-dust after using the facilities! :P
Think of all the fun stuff you'll find while emptying the craft cave!

I'm betting you didn't make it too far in the clearing out process before you made something ;) This card is hilarious! I've never seen that pun used--you're so clever!
