National Tell a Joke Day


What do cows do for entertainment? They go to the moo-vies. Hardy, har, har.

Our "Tell a Joke Blog Hop" will have you laughing all the way through the line up.  Each blogger has crafted a great project but also added a laugh.  Start with Lorby's World by clicking here and I'm sure you'll be crying from laughing so hard by the time you get through our line up.

For National Tell a Joke Day, I created a children's card:

In case you can't read the joke, here it is:

"Why did the Dalmation go to the eye doctor?"

"He kept seeing spots!"

For this cute little card I used our new, exclusive Scholastic paper pack.  I used our brand new, AMAZING, exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge for the card shape.  You can find this card shape on page 57, C7, Card < j > cut at 4 3/4" and 5".  I also used the Artiste to cut the word bubbles in the card.  You can find the bubble on page 65, D5, Accent 2 < b > cut at 1 3/4" and 2".  I edged the outside of each bubble with Outdoor Denim ink.

For the cute little Dalmation on the front of the card, I used one of my all-time favorite Cricut cartridges:  Create-a-Critter!  He was cut at 2 1/2" out of Black and White Daisy cardstock.  You can find him on page 35, B2, < Dalmtion > cut at 2 1/2".  The bone can be found on page 34, B1, Shift, Layer 3, < Dalmtion > cut at 3/4".

I hope you enjoyed my project for National Tell a Joke Day.  I have to say that I chuckle every time I look at the card :)
