Let's have a Quirky Chuckle - go on!

Lyn thought we needed cheering up, and set the challenge for you to: Make Us Laugh (or at least grin) over at Quirky Crafts this time. Crackerbox Palace are sponsoring us and they have lots of humorous images and sentiments. I used Chopper (I think he is brilliantly funny) and You're a Classic from Crackerbox Palace. The papers are Rockstar by DCWV and the tartan ribbon was from Crafty Ribbons. The vertical sentiment is from a stamp set by River City, at first I stamped onto the tartan paper but I didn't think that showed up enough because the letters are so small so I stamped and heat embossed on white instead. I used 4 brads from stash, could be Papermania. All the shapes are die cut with Spellbinders dies. Chopper and the sentiment are coloured with Promarkers and Trias.
You can win one of three very generous vouchers from Crackerbox Palace if you are in our top three, so hop on over to Quirky to see more funny examples (you must check out Ike's toilet), and to join in.
Crackerbox Palace sell great rubber stamps, but the team are using the digi form of the stamps, and these should be on sale when the new website is complete.
I am amazed I managed to make this card last night, I am suffering from a nasty virus that stopped me going to S. Wales and haven't been able to concentrate on anything for a couple of days! I hoped to have made more, I will for the reminder.

I have entered the following challenges:
ABC Challenges - X for Xtra special (birthday)
