Yeah - that's what I said... This was last Friday's prompt for the Jingle Belles challenge - we're to make a humorous Christmas card. Uh-huh...umm...drawing a blank here... That trend continued for most of the week. I Googled and Yahoo-searched "Christmas jokes", "Christmas cartoons", etc., but came up with nothing but riddles and redneck jokes. While that could have been amusing, it's just not what I had in mind.
A couple of days ago, inspiration struck while I was working on the last few of the 70 bed scarves I was sewing for a new hotel, so I switched my searching for clip art or digital stamp images that would allow me to execute my plan - nothing...
Finally, last night I decided to just bite the bullet and use my somewhat limited cartooning abilities and draw it myself, so I did. Here's the result of that scribbling and some computer-generated wording:
I know it's kind of hard to read on this little picture on the computer screen, so I'll fill you in on what it says:
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree...Christmas Songs for Seniors Includes the title track, plus: Do You Hear What I Hear? (or is my hearing aid acting up again?); What Child Is This? (I keep forgetting their names...) ...and many more!
I know - kind of silly, but I believe that's the whole point of the prompt/challenge, yes? I'm just happy that I came up with something, because I was having a trouble there for quite a while...
After I got my old folks and their pup and tree drawn and colored, I added some gold pen garland and star and some Liquid Pearls ornaments and stuck the whole thing on a card base of Stampin'Up! Real Red cardstock. It's totally flat (go, me!), but will still require extra postage because it's 5 3/4" wide by 5 1/2" high, so it's probably oversized for regular postage.
Okay - I've got several projects in the works and my sister is coming to visit next week with her husband, so I've got to whip my home into shape, too, so I've got to GO! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
