Are You a Morning Person?


If so, you probably won't be able to relate to my card today. LOL!

I am NOT a morning person. I wake early and can function, but I really prefer late nights over early mornings.

Therefore, when Karen (the September Sisterhood Swap hostess) asked us to create humorous cards - cards that we could give to our close friends who would understand our humor - I chose to use Stella and Gus images and sentiments from Bugaboo. By the way, if you aren't familiar with Bugaboo digital stamps, you really should click on the link and check them out. They are wonderfully fun images... and there's a FREEBIE every Friday! I'm just sayin'.

I will admit, Karen's theme had me really stumped for a very long time. I thought and thought, pondering what kind of image I could use to create a humourous card. I was getting no where fast in my quest for ideas. So I turned to my online buddies and asked for ideas. They shared a few, but just as their ideas started rolling in, I remember Bugaboo... and those images that always crack me up. So I went on a virtual tour of the Bugaboo store and purchased a couple of images to use.


Here's the front of my card:



Gus has a point... I'm sure my dear husband feels the same way about me sometimes.
But that's okay, because sometimes I feel just like Stella, who is on the inside of my card:

I'm entering my card in the Bugaboo Anything Goes Challenge.

Tee Hee!!!
I hope Karen appreciates my take on her humorous theme.


Images and Sentiments: Bugaboo Gus and Stella
