Sorry For Being Prickly...

**This is my second post for today!  For my Paper Smooches Sparks post please scroll down or click here!**


I love punny cards and this one made me giggle while I was making it.  :)  I used the colours from the Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Challenge and the cactus from Travelscapes.  The cactus is my favourite image from that set - so cute!


It was another humid, grey day here today so I holed up in the Craft Cave again while Luis braved the elements and cut the lawn.  Thanks to the rain we had last week (yay!) it was looking a little wild out in the yard but now it looks lovely and I love that fresh mowed grass smell!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Textured white) Bazzill, (Smooth white) Pacon, (Real Red, More Mustard, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cactus from Travelscapes, Cane background) Market Street Stamps
Inks: (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punches:  (2" & 2 1/2" circles) Marvy Uchida

Oh, I wish Luis could come mow my lawn :( We've had torrential rain the last 3 days and it was ready to be mowed before that...I'm going to need a scythe by the time it dries up enough to cut it!
I love that cane background - it adds so much texture to the cs, and how awesome is that sentiment? I feel like I could carry around a stack of these cards lately & pretty much give them to everybody I see.

I remember those telephones - and that vintage ad! You did wonders with these colors - perfect for your prickly mood! Love the way you used this cute image, Jen. Fun! You just need a hungry buzzard.....

Such a perfect, little, CAS creation, Jen! Thanks so much for playing in this month's Paint the Town Color Challenge!

Love this card too....so funny but totally usable, especially by me ;0)
Goodness no wonder Luis has been suffering.... swinging a lawn mower around is definitely not going to do him any good.... they dont make good patients do they!
