Cute Card Thursday #150 - Banish the Blues

Happy Thursday!

The challenge for Cute Card Thursday this week is called "Banish the Blues." With all the stormy weather and chaos going on around the world, this is our way of taking a break and enjoying a little humor. 

So, here is my attempt at humor...


How do you eat an Elephant?


One bite at a time!
This has been my theme for the last month. I really want to start running. I have not been on a running program for some time, so it feels overwhelming to think about it. My friend and coworker (also a runner) said to me..."one bite at a time." Now if it would just stop snowing. Ah, the excuses.



Stamps: Our Craft Lounge
Paper: K&Co, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Organza Ribbon, Crystal Effects, Quickutz die.


I added crystal effects to my sentiment to make it pop. Unfortunately, it made the ink from the printer bleed a bit.


It took some time to line up the circle with the elephant's head without getting the beaver in the window. 


So, is it humor or perhaps a little demented? Have you seen the demented gallery at Split Coast Stampers?  Too funny.

I am entering this card in the Our Craft Lounge Challenge this week. I used their sketch...


Thanks so much for visiting today!
