Our youngest grandson likes to receive mail in the post just for him so I have been sending him a card each week and enclosing jokes for him to enjoy.We are currently on animal jokes and for the card I'm showing here we were on the letter M so it was Moles, Monkeys and Mice. Up till now I had been using up old notelet cards with cats on the front (as he loves cats) but have now run out of those so have had to resort to making my own cards up. I have a pile of pre-designed card blanks in my stash which I uncovered in my recent Craft Room clear out so have started using them for the card base. I also found some Daisy & Dandelion ready stamped designs which came free in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a while ago with some cat images in amongst them. Perfect!
Here is the card I sent.
I coloured (using my promarkers) the image independent of the card base and then realised it went quite well with it as I had gone round the design using a gold gel pen and used shades of brown on the cat. Then I realised it would also fit the largest of my Xcut Hexagon dies which again worked perfectly with the base. Sorted!!
Now I just know your dying to know what jokes I enclosed so here are just 3 of them.
Remember they are for a nine yr old though.
Q. How does a Mole write to his friends?
A. By E-Mole.
Q. What did the Monkey say when he cut off his tail?
A. It won't be long now.
Q. How does a Mouse feel after it takes a shower?
A. Squeaky clean.
I did warn you!!!!!
