Welcome to my sick since of humor. I know I am going to probably offend all of you bird lovers out there, but I have been wanting to create this card for a really long time and I think it's pretty funny! This is for the "Make Us Laugh" challenge this week over at My Craft Spot. The only thing about this particular challenge is to keep the humor clean. Now... I know that if there are any golfers looking at this, they are going to love it!
For this card, I used Everyday Paper Dolls (Golf Ball), Pooh and Friends (Grass and Stump), Pop-Up Neighborhood (Birdhouse) and Sophisticated (Bird with crown cut off). I used My Craft Spot Stamps (Jingle All The Way) for the "I can explain". I used Navy Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot for the bow. I used chocolate ink on everything.
I used a brown marker to draw in the cracks in the front of the bird house where the golf ball got stuck. For the golf ball, I used a stylus to round it and then a mini stylus tip the other direction to enhance the little dents in the ball.
For the inside, I got on the computer and printed out the sentiment. I wish I could take complete credit for the entire design, but years ago, there was a woman who made these adorable bird houses using broken putters and mushroom birds. She would craft a birdhouse and have the broken putter sticking out of the top with a mushroom bird upside down "Dead Bird" on the front of the house with a little sign that said "Hey! I got a Birdie today!" I don't know why I remembered it, but as soon as I did, I had to make it into a card. I can't wait to see everyone's creations in the challenge this week. I think it's gonna be lots of fun, so make sure you head over to My Craft Spot and get in on the fun! We sure appreciate you spending some time with us today and would love to hear what you think of our card!
