Something to Laugh About

Oh, hi!  I'm glad you stopped by because I really wanted to share a funny with you today.  I thought of each and every one of you when I bought the stamps I used on these cards.  I think you can relate.




That's a Rubbernecker sentiment called Any More Stamps and the Art Impressions Laughing Set.  Yes, they're part of my recent shopping spree and I'm having the BEST time playing.  However, I've curtailed the shopping for the time being because I told myself I wouldn't buy anymore stamps until I've used everything I have at home.  Hahahahahahahaha!  Honestly.




I'd like to send one of these cards to each of my stamping friends, but I only made four.  I used one of the sentiments from the Laughing Set inside each card.




My laughing girlfriends were all stamped on Arches 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper and watercolored with Tombow markers, then cut out and glued onto the card.  I'll list more details in the recipe below.

Oh, my gosh, this was fun!  I hope it gave you a giggle.  Have a happy day!

I tell myself that all of the time and then I go and order more and I laugh, and laugh, and laugh. Even my husband though this was funny. Thanks Leslie for making us stampers feel we are not alone. Have a wonderful day laughing!!!!!

Oh, Leslie, what a giggle! I love these gals, and what a perfect sentiment for them. Truly a card-maker's card from another "stamp-a-holic" friend! I have a few of those! Such fabulous coloring, and I am still smiling too with Hannelie! Hugs and love! xoxo (P. S. And I will quite likely acquire more yet.)

hahaha! You had me laughing at the truism on the first card - with the stampers holding each other up and their cheeks so rosy from laughing hard -- But then I saw the interior! LOL Where did you find these sayings - must have been on line or at a show - Rubbernecker is fabulous. Your coloring makes them even more artsy - thanks for today's laughter, Leslie! OH SO TRUE! hugs, de

Oh my gosh!! Leslie, you had me laughing the moment I saw these pictures, and I mean LAUGHING!!!
These sweet stamping girlfriends are precious, how fabulous it is to have these kinds of friends, the ones you can laugh with till "tears run down your legs", hahahahaha!!
I totally relate, you know this but I'm holding on my friend, not getting anything till the end of the year sales and really, I'm doing ok, the only thing I've bought lately was card stock and a couple of re-inkers, I've been having fun inking up my oldies.
Thank you for sharing these amazing and sweet cards, I'll have a smile on my face all day long.
Sending hugs.
Maria.

Oh, this is so true! I sure giggled over this one and you certainly made me feel better about buying more goodies. So nice to know I am not the only one who gives into temptations. Same goes for dies lately and stencils. Too many things tempting me.

Lori Kobular said...

Hahaha! I can relate to that. I have seriously curtailed my shopping this year, but then Heartfelt Creations just came out with the cutest kitty cat collection that I just had to have. I had asked about it last August at the CKC convention here in Houston. I can't wait to get it. You are such an enabler. I love that stamp set and the sentiments.

I gave up curtailing my shopping sprees lol...it is such an addiction and to me it's as fun to buy the stuff as it is to use it...BUT I do have myself on a monthly budget of my spending for crafty goodness...and I stick to it (most of the time)....fabulous cards...have a great weekend!
