More Mail.

This was the card I sent to our youngest Grandson along with animal jokes which started with the letter O so we were on Owl jokes.
I am still using up the  pre-designed card blanks in my stash which I  uncovered in my recent Craft Room clear out. Also another of the  Daisy & Dandelion ready stamped designs which came free in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a while ago with some cat images in amongst them. The card base had green and gold  triangles in the design so I coloured  the image up accordingly using  my promarker pens and pearlescent chalks. I die cut the image using a First Edition Pinking Edge Nesting die.

Just two of the jokes I enclosed  for your delight.

Q.         What do you call an Owl with a sore throat?
A.          A bird that doesn't give a hoot.

Q.          What do you call an Owl wearing armour?
A.          A Knight Owl.

Sorry folks they don't come any better than that!!

So on that happy note I'm entering into the following challenges:
Pixies Crafty Workshop # 319 Use up your snippets. (last one in the pack of that design)
Through The Craft Room Door # Anything goes.
Crafting By Designs # Anything goes,
Creative Moments #136 Anything goes.
Penny's Paper Crafty #366 Anything goes.
Jo's Scrap Shack #220 Anything goes.
Love to Craft #19 Anything goes.

Super fun card Mrs A and I enjoyed those jokes xx

Di said...

Great card and the jokes did make me titter here! It seems that everywhere I look, folk are using up old stash. Just been over to KandA's and she's using up flowers and ribbone - and here you are using up stuff as well as fishing out your chalks! That's something else I've wondered about ditching when I get round to the big purge - they cost a lot when I bought them but never seem to see the light of day now. Yet so perfect is that green on your image!
