What's the Buzz?

Just a reminder that you have until Thursday, August 1st to comment on this post to be eligible for some blog candy.

I have two cards to share with you today using some fun images from Paper Smooches and Little Tangles.

Here is the first card.  For the backdrop I sponged yellow onto the black using my Balzar Designs hexagon template.  Since you couldn't see much of the yellow, I decided to also outline it with a yellow colored pencil from my Prismacolors.  The bee is one of the freebie digi images Paper Smooches offers, but is also part of the Bee Mine set.  I used the Sup? sentiment from Slang Gang in white.  It didn't fill all the way, so I went over it again with my Signo white pigment ink pen.  This card was inspired by this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS- Picture Perfect Challenge as well as the challenge from The Play Date Cafe- A Splash of Neon.

The next card was made for the Little Tangles Challenge- Into the Woods.  Again, I used this digi image Neat & Tangled and colored it.  I liked the thought of putting the birdie into the tree, so I did.  I used my wood grain embossing folder and brushed the kraft paper with dark brown to make the tree.  The sentiment is from the PS set Slang Gang.  I am thinking it might make a good birthday card for someone who likes birdies.


So as I was creating these I was watching Despicable Me with my kiddo.  So very funny!  The second one is even funnier than the first.  No joke, see it!  I love that part in the previews when the secret agent says his name is, "Ramsbottom" and the minions giggle and say, "bottom...heh-heh-heh."  It totally cracks me up!  My daughter and I have decided that my husband can be our minion- hehe!  So the Question of the Day is- what is your favorite comedy and/or line from a comedy that makes you laugh when ever you think about it?

So sad it is the last day of the weekend but oh well. Enjoy the last of your day off!

What rock have I been hiding under, having just discovered your site? Silly me, but oh, so glad I did! Once I comment, you'll be added to my Feedly - too much great stuff - cards +posts - to miss!!
Favourite quote is the "Mawwiage" scene from The Princess Bride: "Mawwiage is what bwings us togethew today..." When my husband and I got married two years ago, I asked my sister-in-law (she matched us up!) to do a reading and sent her this speech, as a 'joke.' She laughed her face off, then commenced practicing, to the point where I wasn't sure exactly what reading she'd be delivering on our wedding day. She didn't perform from PD, but if she did, I'd have howled with laughter! Thanks for a great site, great cards, great question!

I love your little bee. Very cute! One silly thing that always makes me chuckle is a commercial. The one where a bunch of kids are sitting around with this guy discussing why faster is better a little girl mentions that she would like a chango-machine so she could have a puppy-brother. And the camera cuts to another little girl nodding her head in fascination as if she's had an epiphany and that's the best idea she's ever heard. That little girl makes me giggle. Every time. Silly huh?
