Jingle Belles, Batman Smells!

If you haven't already figured it out by now, Lauren & I have parts of our personalities (particularly our senses of humor) that are stuck in the stages of pre-adolescent silliness ... it keeps us from taking life too seriously.

So, when we discovered our prompt this week falls on April Fool's Day, we couldn't resist a rather foolish prompt:

Happy April Fool's Day!!!!!



So yes ... this week is Jingle Belles, Batman Smells ... we're asking you to make a humorous card for the holidays. It can be a bit twisted, silly, or just plain laugh-out-loud funny ... just incorporate some holiday levity into your design.




Stef says, "My card uses digital paper-piecing with the fabulous Stella from Bugaboo Stamps. She's always got an attitude that makes me chuckle ... click on over to my blog if you want some tips on digital paper-piecing."

Lauren's Card


Lauren says, "two of my all-time favorite things being vintage card ingredients and the LOLcats, it didn't take long to settle on a photograph from an old ideals magazine converted into a fusion of both! :) a computer-generated funny sentiment, loads of "love elsie" goodness, and a bit of stitching later, i was ready to ROCK our special april fool's edition!"






So show us your best silly April Fool's holiday card creations ... we're ready for some giggles.

count me with lisa - i don't know how to do funny + Christmas (i'm not even very good at funny by itself); plus i'm just in awe of the cards already here - good thing it's a "challenge" and not a competition!

paula said...

Had to put the "thinking silly" cap on for this one. Oh what fun xoxoxoxo

Lisa said...

great challenge! i agree with the others, I'm really not that funny, so this was really challenging for me! Managed something but thanks for getting me thinking! Looking forward to next week!
