Aud Sentiments #158 and our theme is .... FUNNY SENTIMENT



Our sponsor for this card is Bugaboo Stamps


 I am using the image called "Stella work - I like work" and the sentiment is from another Stella image.  I used some nice work dp behind the image because work can be nice.. but then I used the anchor paper because sometimes work feels like it weighs you down..

I hope you find time to play along .. you have two weeks and keep the sentiment funny.

What's up?

Monday June 20, 2016
 
 
 I was just playing around in my craft room and decided to make a simple card. .. I had all sorts of sentiments go through my head and ended up choosing this one. What's Up?.. Those eyes have that look.. I kept the card simple and added some old metal brads. I have such a big stash of brads I really need to start using them more. I usually remember after I have the designer paper down and I don't like brads showing on the inside of the card. I know silly me.. but I remembered to add them before I adhered the dp down this time .. I think it would be a great card to send to a friend.

The theme for this week is BINGO so follow the bingo card below and play along
 



This is the image called Flower tea pot .. I chose to use the left side of the card.. Flower - ribbon - charm... I had these acrylic disks and the metal charm backing so I stamped hugs from Dots in stazon and then used adhesive to add it to the metal piece.
