Make 'em Laugh


Happy Friday everyone!
This Lindy's Stamp Gang turtle image cracks me up with the expression on his face! The sentiment is a perfect fit for this ol' slowpoke and my grandfather always used to say the same thing :) To make him more masculine, I added a paper-pieced hat from a Simon Says Stamp set which seems to fit him perfectly! The papers are all from BG Origin and the brads were from my stash. I think it will make a great belated birthday card for someone!

I'm entering this into the Cards4Guyz #12 challenge which is to "Make us Laugh" with a funny card.

Keep smiling and have a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

Please click the "lots of love for Lauryn" link on my sidebar and see how you can cheer up another young child stricken with a life-threatening illness with a card. You can help in several ways, so please take a few minutes to click on, and read the blog link. Her family will be so grateful if you spread the word too.

LOL, I just love how you gave the LSG turtle his very own hat! I also would like to thank you for placing Lauryn's ribbon badge on you're side bar. This is an amazing family, and they deserve all the prayers we can give them.

OMGosh, I think this card is made for me! lol I always say the same thing and it is so true for me. I love the papers you used on this one Carol and I love, love this turtle. His expression cracks me up too, his hat is adorable and just perfect on him. I love the sentiment and use it a lot myself. This is a great masculine card. Thanks for the smile! Hugs

This is funny (and so true). Loved your paper pieced hat...it sets off Mr. Turtle enormously. That hat just finished off his costume. LOL. TFS & Hugs. Will check your link, and thanks for helping a little one.
