"funny" card...

We can always use a laugh/smile, right? Well, here's one for you...card-related!
When I say "funny", it's not the funny kinds of cards that make you smile. It's the "funny-looking" kind of cards. A few days ago I made this bike card and somehow that it didn't come out the way that I had envisioned. I had the idea of making waving sentiment as part of the design and make it look like a hilly road. After I finished the card, the more I looked at it, the more I thought about the movie "E.T."!!!! This card is now called : "E. T. Phone home!"

 If that was not funny, hope this will make you smile.
It's hard to create something decent as my crafting hours are cut due to my working at the doctor's office. But I try to keep fun things/thoughts in life to keep me sane. Hope you are doing the same! As the saying goes:  "Laughter is the best medicine", but somehow I can't stay away from doctor's office! How funny is that!?

Virginia--your post made me smile! I wouldn't have thought of ET until you mentioned it! And our family rode the ET ride at Universal Studios some 20 years ago! Love the fun, whimsical feel of your card.

I LOVE the card and now that you've brought the vision of ET into it, that's all I can see too... for a moment, I had a glimpse of a road and WHAM! it's gone... all I now see are those bicycles climbing into the sky...

But I do SO LOVE THIS!

Hi Virginia, this card is great and I love your design. I also didn't think of ET until you mentioned it and now I can see ET riding one of the Bikes. Your humor made me laugh and put a smile on my face and has made me feel better. Take care and don't work too hard. Hugs to you.

I love your E.T. phone home card, Virginia! The only thing that made me think of the movie was YOU mentioning it! Now that you HAVE mentioned it, wouldn't be cute to create the whole E.T. and Elliot silhouette in front of the moon scene with this bike? LOL!
I also love all of your fruit and veggie photos. I have a book somewhere around here of fruits and veggies that the boys used to love! Those photos make me think of reading that book over and over and over again! :)

Your bike card is fantastic, Virginia!! I love the wavy sentiment as hills but it definitely works for E.T.! Such a cute movie, that was. It's still one of my favourites. Those veggies and fruit are crazy cute! P.S. Please let me know what kinds of inks you use.

jaemom said...

Oh, V! You're too funny! (And I don't mean the "funny-looking" kind)! I didn't see ET at all in that card, I saw a hilly road! :) Love the funny veggies, too, they crack me up. Hugs to you...
