TMR - Give us a giggle ....

.... Good morning everyone!!!  It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room and our theme is "Give Us a Giggle".  We want you to make the guys in your life laugh - it can be a funny image, a pun, something really silly - anything so long as you make us all giggle.  Here's my card:

Happy Birthday - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborha's Gems

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo - Humourous Birthdays
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Pool Party
Dies: Lil' Inkers - Stitched Squares #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Smoky Slate; SU DP - Daffodil Delight; Copics; SU Chevron Punch


Today is Jonathan's 50th birthday and my Mum asked me to make a card so that she could give it to him today.  Mum asked for something a bit silly which made it a perfect fit for our challenge.  I've used the layout and chevron theme from Fusion Card Challenge - FUSION#8 and the colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#100.  Sadly, it is the last ever challenge at Dynamic Duos and I'll miss playing along with the team.

I made the card base from Smoky Slate and cut a white panel using the Stitched Square die from Lil Inkers.  I stamped the little turtle into the corner of the card and coloured him with Copics.  I punched some bright yellow chevrons from design paper and adhered them to the card.  I finished the front with a fun greeting.  For the inside I cut a mat of yellow design paper, a panel of white on which I continued the funny sentiments and repeated the image of the turtle.  Jonathan will enjoy this card very much!!

For more cards that give us a giggle, check out the cards from the rest of the team.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make! 

See you soon - well soonish, it's rather busy here at the moment.  I'm really enjoying having Mum here with us.  We've been out shopping a couple of times and are now in the middle of party preparations for Jonathan's party (Saturday), so I might not be about much.  Bye for now.

Such an adorable birthday card Deb. You did a stellar job on coloring that cute image....and I love the way you showed the sentiment on the inside. I often forget about the interior of cards, but I think they should look as pretty as the outside. Well done, my friend.

Yes, awesome job, inside and out, on this card. The sentiment is a hoot! and I love how you repeated the long-lived turtle on the inside. Great job incorporating the challenge colours, too. Thanks for joining in with the Dynamic Duos for our final week.
