Stampin'B's Challenge #24 - Humorous (is it?)

Joanne’s challenge on the Stampin'B's DT Challenge Blog made me scramble this week. I don’t have too many “humorous” stamps, so I had to wing this one.

I think we could all relate to the sentiment on this Inky Antics stamp in one way or another – be it overeating or overspending or whatever. One way to eliminate reading about our vices definitely would be to give up books and magazines!!

After stamping Sassy Suzie with Palette Noir Black and coloring her with Prismacolor and Copic markers, I cut out the panel with Nestabilities Label 4 and matted it in Pixie Pink. The DP is from a DCWV stack called The Sweet Stack, which seemed very appropriate with the sentiment. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the glittery brads sparkle in the light.

How do you like that cupcake in the background? It’s foam rubber, and I found it in a great little gift shop near my favorite LSS in Mount Dora, Florida.

Lois, I love the image on your funny card but unfortunately I can read the sentiment.
I would love to know what it says, can you e-mail me?
I thought that the cupcake was real. LOL
Have a nice weekend.
