Stampin' B's #24 Challenge -- Humor

Laughter is the best medicine....the best pick-me-up on a bad day.....best when shared with friends. Well, as host of the Stampin' B's challenge for this week, my mission for the team was to use humor on their card, through image, sentiment, or both. OF COURSE, I went for BOTH!!!

I used an image and sentiment that are unidentified as they are unmounted and I was never good at keeping track of that. Wish it came permanently inked on the back of the stamp. Always feel bad when I can't give credit where it is due. So if anyone knows the source for these stamps, please share through a comment.

(Thanks to my dear friend, Vicky Gould, the image of the man has been identified as coming from Art Impressions. Thanks, Vicky!! Now...anybody have any idea about the sentiment???)

This image always makes me smile so I really wanted to use him. I also need to build up on my masculine cards, so this was also perfect for that. As I approach a BIG significant birthday, I seem to be making more cards with 'aging' jokes and themes. However, no one does this kind of stamping better than my dear SCS friend, Judy (judylb). If you ever are having a bad day, go visit her gallery and you will surely leave with a smile on your face. She makes beautiful cards too, but her humor is spot on and so enjoyable. If she posts a card today or tomorrow, be sure to include a Happy Birthday in your comment. It is her birthday on the 19th!!!

Now, be sure to visit the Stampin' B's blog to see the 'humor' of the rest of the team. I can pretty much guarantee a good time!!!!

Man, your coloring on this is awesome. That 'man' is from Art Impressions.

Now, as to your funny card - I LOVE IT! I shouldn't 'cause I'm at that age too and while I have no one to respect; I don't get no respect either!!!

Funny, great card, GF!

Ha, this made me laugh so your attempt to provide humor and a smile worked! Isn't it fun when you are inspired to make a card with humor in it? I like how you were able to incorporate the sentiment too, not easy with that size.
