This week the Ladies of Humbug Hall (Bah! Humbug! Christmas Challenges) have asked for a Christmas card to make you giggle. Now, they had a couple of real doozies so I was feeling a bit intimidated. What card could I make that would have folks giggling? With the traveling and all, I almost didn't do one but then, I remembered all the great digis from Bugaboo Stamps. Well, I did a bit of mix and matching (I always was a fan of those Garanimals). The sentiment is from one of the Stella images while the image of Fanny didn't have a sentiment.
Here is a close-up of the sentiment/tag.
and the image of Fanny. She is pop dotted because I would have never gotten her to lie flat on top of that ribbon. You can't exactly see it in this shot but I added Stickles to the bulbs and her earrings for a bit of sparkle.
I found this new (new to me) Christmas Card Challenge site which also had the theme of funny cards.
I wanted to leave you with some more artwork from our trip. On our way home from Ohio we stopped in Berea, KY. If you've never visited Berea, it is well worth a visit, especially if you are a fan of arts and crafts (which I'm guessing you are if you are still reading this blog). Here is a bit of the history of Berea, and a little bit about the school. Many people know of their strong Arts and Crafts programs but Berea College is a liberal arts school with many majors besides arts and crafts.
You have already seen my fascination with outdoor sculptures. I'm especially intrigued by the sculptures where an entire town/city has a series of sculptured all with the same base but each decorated for the artist or the organization commissioning the artwork.
In Berea it is hands. Here are a few of the ones we saw.
|The Hand of the Creator|
|Mano a Mano with Wonderkid|
|A Bird in the Hand|
|Power of Make Belief|
|We Make You Kindly|
While we were gone every leaf in the neighborhood arrived. I'll take some pictures tomorrow as it is quite a difference from my pictures just a week ago.
