Now onto this weeks challenge, I made this card for the Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge TSMONDAY! This weeks challenge to to make a humorous card!
I combined this weeks humorous challenge along with the C4C34, and I used the same layout as Silke. When Silke first started using this curved edge punch, I loved it and had to buy one. This is the first card I've made with it, and I think Silke's layout pairs perfectly with it!
This is the new Bugaboo image JJ cook, she is now available as a clear stamp at Totally Stampalicious. I coloured JJ with copics. Her glasses, lips and wine glass have crystal effects on them.
I know it's short notice, but I hope you can play along!
stamps: JJ cook
Paper: chocolate chip, kiwi kiss, K&co Amy Butler lotus, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, rich cocoa
Accessories: copics, circle/scallop nesties, oval punch, word window, EK embossed curve edge punch, crystal effects, ribbon, button, MS bakers twine, love language EF
Have a Great Day!

We're off to the Kentucky Derby! This is Charlie he's so excited to finally be taking part in the race, he's been praticing for so long! But Charlie is still young, and he's sure a roll in the hay....I mean leaves, with the beautiful Charlene will surely bring him good luck at the race!
Of course Charlene is just a big tease always peeking over the fence to watch him! I wonder if she'll give in! lol
Charlie and Charlene are both from cdstamps.com, and I coloured them with copics. The sentiment was computer generated!
Have a Great Day!

Totally Stampalicious has teamed up with Jodie Mackrell of Bugaboo Stamps, and tonight is the Grand release of some fun Bugaboo images now available in clear stamp form! They are cute and funny, there's something for everyone!
If you are a Digi person, and prefer the images in Digi, they are only available at Bugaboo stamps, however if you prefer rubber then these images will be available for purchase starting tonight at 10 pm at Totally Stampalicious!
Well first I'll tell you about the cards, and then I'll include the BLOG HOP details below!
My first card above was made with Stella Nurse, this image cracked me up when I first saw it, it's one of my favorites! I combined it with the CC267 colour challenge this week, basic appealing shadows with the dessert option of using lace.
Sage shadow kinda reminds me of the colour of hospital gowns, which I've seen more than my share of, that's why I find this funny!
Stella was coloured with copics, and I added crystal effects to her glasses.
The flowers are from the 3 flower punch and the stems are made with the 2 step bird punch.
This is me in my kitchen...I wish! lol No really this JJ cook, I love the sentiment! I was inspired to use wine colours, so the dp is from Basic Greys Indian Summer. The card base is bravo burgundy with a layer of white.
I coloured JJ with copics, except her apron, it's dp. I added crystal effects to her glasses. She's drinking blush wine tonight, and she's a Rachael Ray fan so she's using her orange handled spoon! lol
The sentiment is popped up on a fancy tag and I added some yellow crystal brads to finish it off!
This is Stella Birthday! I love Stella, I think she's hilarious! She comes with another sentiment that says "what's one more friggin' candle!"
Today I used this weeks sketch challenge SC277. The card base is melon mambo stamped with the weathered bg and edges sponged.
The so saffron panel is embossed with the numbers collage embossing folder, and edges sponged. The dp is from the Welcome Neighbour pack.
I coloured Stella with copics, added so crystal effects to her glasses and candle flames. I also added dazzling diamonds to the cake and party hat.
I'll have more to show you tomorrow.

I used Garden Riley for my card today. I coloured him with copics, but his boots are dp. I left the image in the nesite and sponged on creamy caramel and soft sky. This focal image is popped up.
The top was embossed, and the edges pierced, which fits for the technique lovers challenge TLC269.
The chipboard flower was from the $ store. I covered it with dp, and added a smaller punched flower in the center with a gem brad. I cut the back off of the brad so it would lay flat.

Speedy has been slow to get ready for his vacation, hes worried the rumors are true! Youve probably heard the rumors that have circulated for 42,000 some odd years now...about the existance of...Slater the cat hater Gator!!!! What ever will he do if he comes face to face with a cat hating gator???
It is a little known secret, that Speedy the cat is very well respected by the Head Hawg of the local biker gang...Pork Chopper! This guy thinks so highly of Speedy the cat, he even had his likeness tatooed on his arm. Unfortunately the tatoo artist didnt graduate at the top of his class, so his work isnt as clear as it should be!
Anyway Pork Chopper, head of the largest bike gang around, with 100,000 members, has made it his personal mission to deliver Speedy the Cat safe and in one piece to Kittie so he can create the perfect scene!
No way will those gators be bothering Speedy! and of course he enjoyed the ride with the wind blowing through his black silky fur...what a life he leads!
Stamps: Road Hawg, Our family Tree, Speedy the cats friends, snakeskin-inkadinkado
Paper: tempting turquoise, black, white
Ink: memento tuxedo black, versamark
Accessories: copics, black ep, copic atyou spica silver, brads, distressing tool, circle punches, word window, dimensionals
Please forgive my bad grammer, my laptop is typing è instead of an apostrophy!!!
Have a Great Day!

And the winner from last weeks challenge is Melinda - Unusual Tendencies, she wins a free Digi set!
This week Totally Stampalicious has a great sale on, Get the Hawt Dawg or Rockin Frawg for only $10 each!
To celebrate the sale, this weeks challenge is to make a card or project with a critter on it. I made my card an odd size 5.75" square, and I used the Rockin Frawg! I also combined this with the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C32, we were to use 1 ribbon, 2 brads or buttons, and 3 punches.
I love that critters are so versatile, I used Rockin Fawg to make this baby card. The inspiration came from from the dp.
I coloured Mr. Frawg with copics. I used 1 button and 1 brad, hope that counts! lol I didn't have the right colour star brad, so I covered it with a star made with a MS punch. I also used the small SU star punch, and a Fiskars star punch.
There's BIG news at Totally Stampalicious too! Totally Stampalicious has paired up with Bugaboo Digi Stamps, and will soon be selling Bugaboo Stamps in clear rubber form! Have you seen how cute there images are...this is going to be great!!!!

I used the cricut to cut the tree from certainly celery. Then using the itty bitty bg stamps, and certainly celery & old olive, I stamped on some texture and then sponged the edges. For the trunk, I used chocolate chip & the woodgrain bg stamp, then I sponged the edges with chocolate chip.

Also the congratulations to Lori Turner, she was last weeks Monday challenge winner.
There are a couple unclaimed prizes from our recent blog hop, check out Totally Stampalicious to see if you're a winner!
So onto this weeks challenge TSMONDAY23, we challenge you to make an easel card. You can find a tutorial here.
I know you're probably thinking....what the heck!!!! But I can explain! I am often drawn to the funny Teapot Tuesday stories hosted by Cindy aka Mothermark. After reading the challenge last week MMTPT87, this popped in my head and I've been dying to sit down and make it, but first I had to make all my Easter treat baskets! So it's a little late, but here goes!
Hop diggity dawg, Brutus is so confused! He's a bunny that's not into Easter and a wanna be dog who prefers bones to carrots any day!
I used the Hawg Dawg set, and altered it a bit using a set called Bunny Nuggets from cdstamps.
I stamped and cut out some of the bones to pop them up. The carrots were made with half a heart and the MS fern punch. I also added fun flock to the tail.
To keep the card popped up, I cut out one of the hearts from the dp, backed it with cardstock and popped it up. I love dimensionals!
Make sure to upload your easel card to Mr. Linky on the Totally Stampalicious blog.
The grass was made with the Martha Stewart grass punch, and I popped it up. The whole image panel is popped up too.
The background was embossed with the bloom dots embossing folder, and the sentiments were computer generated.
