That Tickles Me Challenge

The challenge today on 365cards.blogspot.com was to create a humorous card. I was having so much fun that I created two cards.

For my first card I used the Sweet tooth set from Clear and Simple Stamps and stamped the peppermint several times on white cardstock masking off the bottom part of the wrapper to make it look like a lollipop. I colored the images with SU Watercolor Wonder Crayons, cut them out and attached toothpicks to them. Before mounting them to the card with pop dots I coated them with a layer of Glossy Accents and dipped them into Diamond Dust.

For the second card I used one of the new Bernard images from DigiStamp Boutique. When I saw this image I knew I had to make a card using the phrase "Do I hear cake?" because I remember a birthday card I received when I was young that had a drawing of Snoopy laying on his dog house with one ear up and those words and I thought this image would be a nice substitute.

I hope my cards put a smile on your face. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful week.
