restricted: adjective

Kept within certain limits

I am enjoying the freedom to make cards with my sense of humor for the store. I never realized how restricted I felt before with the ones that I submit to the magazines!
 ( have to be sweet and conservative all the time )

So this week will be dedicated to my sense of humor, Thanksgiving style!!
What inspires you? Ramona over at Inspire Me Monday Week 37 asks that question, and it can be any answer; for's humor this week, and I hope you come back everyday to see a new card
 and hopefully smile...even giggle ( that's always better!! )

Pause Dream Enjoy - Challenge #37 Yellow and Red
and the question of the week:
What does the word "SCHOOL" make you think of?
Yellow School Buses? Red Apples?, makes me think of tests that I didn't study for!

I worked in my red and yellow colors on the quote box. I took some Ranger's Squeezed Lemonade Reinker and used my finger to spread it out, and then printed the sentiment out on a separate piece of paper and used my red ink pen to trace over it with the help of a light box.

( no, my handwriting isn't that neat on my own! )
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Autumn Colors with ribbon theme 

Sakura Glaze pen ( to color in the turkey's tail feathers )
Cricut - Stretch Your Imagination cartridge
Best Creations - paper
Tim Holtz - Distress markers
Really Reasonable Ribbon Brown Crochet Lace and Hemp Cord Pastel
( they must have sold out of the Pastel cording, but  wow, they got in a lot more different colors!)

And a special note:
Jenn from Just Add Water Silly who is a contributing editor of Featuring, where there's a huge selection of interesting articles on Zentangling, photography, Twitter & henna art, with lots more to keep you reading has announced a giveaway.
Purchase your pre-order copy of Issue 2 before September 21st and be entered into a draw to win ONE of thirty
inchies they are giving away.

Also,  FEATURING magazine wants YOUR art for their Theme Gallery and they ask readers to send in artwork to represent what that theme means to them. Their theme for Issue 3 is "Soundtrack Of My Life".

How cool does that sound?


And if that's not enough goodness, remember that Project Pinterest for September is up and running, so bring on those creations, big or small!!

I love your sense of humour Sandee and this brought a huge smile to my face this very dreary British morning!! I love the idea of using my light box too - it's hidden in a drawer somewhere and I think it'll be coming out to play again after seeing this!
Have a great week.

Hi Sandee, it does pain me to see the funny side of this (no I am not a veggie) but I have to admit it did give me quite a big giggle! Crafty hugs, Anne x

My art friend Kathy and I will be making cards this week at her place. She has a Sizzex, so I'll be having a bit of fun. I may have to recreate this humorous card. It's the greatest I have found, yet!!

your card totally rocks, I laughed out loud, which is hard to do when I haven't even had my morning coffee yet!
Thanks so much for the shout out about FEATURING, the editor in chief emailed me yesterday to thank me and my very cool friends for helping spread the word about this terrific new international magazine. She was thrilled and so am I. So, you rock along with your funny card!

Lizzie Laine said...

Oh my gosh your card is too funny and I just love those legs on the turkey!

Thanks for joining us at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges:)


Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my gosh! The long-legged turkey makes me laugh! He looks so unassuming, little does he know what's coming. Love the ribbon you used for the ground, it really conveys fall.

GREAT card! And do you really have to be sweet and conservative for the mags? Guess that is why I never submitted! I got zinged on my performance eval at work for being too blunt. Yeah... well, no mollycoddling from this gal!

Rita said...
